On My Ipod

Right now, the Red Hot Chili Peppers new CD Stadium Arcadium and Gnarls Barkley. Both great CDs.

A few songs that have been on my Ipod forever recently resurfaced and for some reason, they resonated:
I see the same shit everyday/the landscape looks so bleak
I think Ill take the first one of yous home/that does something unique

a. di franco, face up and sing

you left my heart empty as a vacant lot
for any spirit to haunt

u2, who’s gonna ride your wild horses?

You know what else is a g.f.s? Johnny Cash – Hurt.

everyone i know/goes away/in the end.

Brilliant.

Do you remember getting chills the first time you heard the guitar intro to that song? Remember when you heard the piano intro in “Trouble” from Coldplay for the first time, before they hit it big? Most people go through their whole lives without creating anything as illuminating as the first 20 seconds of those songs. Remember when you found out that “Creep” was not Radiohead’s best song, just the one with the most commercial success? Those moments seem to come less frequently these days. Is it because the older you get the more numb you become? Or is music just not as good anymore?
