tonight this song saved my life :no.1
"did you feel the breeze, my love..."
some days are hard, you know.
so i slink home. plug in the box. hope for something.
tonight it was "summer's kiss" by the whigs. you know them. you know it. listen to it again.
some days are hard.

"my love, this dream i have each night/ i stare into a blinding light/ alone, i stare"

That's a song that hints, promises and delivers. It's all the armor you need against these beasts of the world.

I made Donna skip through The Jam's greatest hits the other day to get her take on it. She liked most of it, mainly the later stuff. It reminded me of how those were probably the first songs where the lyrics meant something to me, when I first started listening to "my own" music, at thirteen or so... Songs like "Going Underground" or "Beat Surrender" spoke greatly to my growing sense of "Boy, most people are really full of shit, huh?" but also let me know that there were others who knew it too.
I'm not sure what the equivalent is now. The signs I see everywhere are discouraging. I wonder how kids now get through the bullshit without giving in to it.

yeah, the new stuff now seems to me all flash. even the few new bands i listen to are only interesting to me musically. people just seem to have nothing to say. i guess i got spoiled by listening to guys like costello and westerberg at a fairly young age. after those two there's really not much left to say.
