Country roads, take me home
To the place I belong
Mountain mamma, take me home
…is so American that I had to stop on it. I wonder how it sounds for an American? It sounds country music but West Virginia is north east, right? It’s far from… Arizona, OK? It sounded Texas to my poor ears. Are the Appalachian a mini-Far West? I’m really lost. I’m sure it’s a very popular song in the USA. It sounds like an hymn! How do young people listen to that? Old shit from the seventies? A song about Land Melancholy? I googled the lyrics to find out that the core of the song (broken hearted singing cow-boys, I reckon… darn it… recognize that you kill me at times) was :
Driving down the road I get a feeling
That I should have been home yesterday
That is terrible!
Someone Somewhere in Summertime is a Simple Minds song from 1982. I was 16 years old. I didn’t care about the lyrics, but the SOUND, yes. Like a luxurious version of new wave.
Lyrics are different (I discover the meaning of this today) :
Shadows of brilliant ways will change all the time
Burning gold memories
Gold of day memories change me in these times
I wonder why we don’t hear new “sounds” these years in pop music. I listened to the 50 best titles of 2017 with no real surprises…
I learned in a movie magazine the existence of the “No reason scenarios”. Stories for no reason. I’ll explore this further, OK?
Meanwhile here’s a clip for no reason :
Women are not vending machines that you put kindness coins in until sex falls out
But I read (slippery answer, right?) “Why not to try, though?”, on a Reddit forum.
Kindness coins… Ohlalaaaaa…
(I don’t find the source of this quote. Some says it’s Sylvia Plath but it does not sound right).
“We only need what we need”, said Chekhov.
Oh I love this so much! Because lazy lazies will just laugh, right? “We only need what we need”, yeahhh.
Have a nice day!
