Close Your Eyes for This One

The video for this isn’t that great, so I ask that you close your eyes and pretend that you’re sitting on a metal folding chair in coveted shade, in your sweaty lycra outfit, eating a ham sandwich after climbing four peaks in 80 miles in the hot sun on your bicycle, with two thousand other freaks, and you’re wondering if you’ll ever get up again, and this is the song playing on the high quality sound system, and for the next four minutes and five seconds, you’re thinking, Hey, that’s how I feel. How’d he do that?!

    While you ignore this one, this is the line that got my attention in the first place:

    “I remember hearing songs about trains and feeling the rush of wonder that the world was both infinite and accessible all at the same time. Then is was songs about highways and born to be wild and little red corvettes and the road went on forever in my mind. But now its clogged with stinking SUVs and two story pickup trucks that can climb over anything but the two story pickup truck right in front of it. Now even the Highways look the same, Starbucks and 7-11s and Wal-Mart’s line the feeder roads. We don’t live around this mess, we live under it.” — Guy Forsyth, from “It’s Been a Long, Long Time”
