song of the day. #11

song of the day.

Whenever I hear this song, I am reminded of a deejay I used to love listening to every morning. Sadly, he, his morning show, and the entire station… are no more. Well, he still exists… just not in my world.

Oh, Fletcher, I totally miss you… for saying things like…

When The Airborne Toxic Event plays ‘Sometime Around Midnight’, I may have to jump up on stage, fall to my knees, and weep.

This song inspired me. A scene in one of my stories was born from me listening to this song on repeat for a few days. The story in question has been posted here. I wonder if you know which it is… or if you accept this as a fiction-hunting challenge…

I think this song makes my top-ten-best-songs-of-all-time list, too. (I think my top-ten list has about 50 songs on it… or more.)

And I couldn’t seem to select a smaller piece of the lyrics…

And so there’s a change in your emotions
And all these memories come rushing like feral waves to your mind
Of the curl of your bodies like two perfect circles entwined
And you feel hopeless and homeless and lost in the haze of the wine

Then she leaves with someone you don’t know
But she makes sure you saw her, she looks right at you and bolts
As she walks out the door, your blood boiling, your stomach in ropes
Oh and your friends say “What is it? You look like you’ve seen a ghost”

Then you walk under the streetlights
And you’re too drunk to notice that everyone’s staring at you
You just don’t care what you look like, the world is falling around you

Maybe you’ve heard this song before… maybe not. But I highly recommend hearing it now. And again later. And a few more times after that.


Obviously I am not the owner of any rights to this song, this video, or these lyrics… just everything else… which isn’t much… © 2016 what sandra thinks

She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.

    I just heard this song a few days ago! Not for the first time, but for the first in a long time! And I thought ‘this is an amazing song… why didn’t it get more popular?” Thank goodness I was in the car, cause I cranked it!
