It is good to be understood.
I knew as soon as I saw it on my personal Facebook page this morning, that this would be the centre of today’s NaBloPoMo post.
How cool are the musicians from Walk Off The Earth?!
What I did not know, is that I would actually need to shake so much it off by the end of this day.
How did my dear faraway friend know?
Somehow she knew. Maybe she doesn’t even know she knew, but she knew and I am grateful.
*Thank you MP. This makes up for the discordant Christmas music shenanigans from earlier in the week. : )
Less blog post, more self indulgence.
There it is in all it’s 1990s angsty glory.
4 Non Blondes.
Top hat. Goggles. Dreads.
You know what?
It’s still relevant.
It’s still interesting.
It still moves me.
It’s still an excellent selection for car singing.
How do I know?
Well, since you asked…
I had to go out to return a movie to the video store tonight and while I was leaving that video store this song came on the radio and since I was already living in the past – what with the video returning and all – I decided to turn it up (loud) and sing.
Every single word.
Coincidentally enough, the song is the perfect length for a drive from the video store. I mean really. It took me from door to door.
Bonus: I live on a hill and when Linda Perry sings,
“Twenty-five years and my life is still
Trying to get up that great big hill of hope
For a destination
I *totally* was.
Okay, so maybe it wasn’t literally a “hill of hope”, but maybe it was.
Who’s to say? It’s a mystery, really.
Back to the song.
I still love it.
