As I was driving to work the other day I heard “Babylon” by David Gray and realized that I could hear that song a million times and I wouldn’t get sick of it. That caused me to reflect on the few songs I felt that way about. Songs where no matter when you came upon them, like an old friend, you would be glad to have them in your world.
Thus, I give you my “comfy as old jeans” songs list. Feel free to add yours on the comment section (even if it’s just one).
My (always being added to) list of comfy songs:
If anyone can guess the singer of this song, I will donate some money to the “you really need a life” foundation. (haha) It’s one of my all time favorite songs I re-discovered recently.
“Once we were lovers and now we’re not even friends. It was good to have you near me for awhile. When we made each other happy and we made each other smile.
And the worst part is that knowing that my castle in the sky fell apart and it’s too late to build it up … too late to try. You took every dream I planned on, every dream that tried to stay. Seems I always think about you most of all on a rainy day.”
I think some lines of songs are like poems. For example, this line from “Wish you were here” by Incubus is, IMO, just a beautiful visual: “The ocean looks like a thousand diamonds strewn across a blue blanket …”
From Vertical Horizon “Everything you want” is this line I like: ” … under skinned knees and skid marks …” (I like the “sk” alliteration there)
“Wanna put my tender heart in a blender, watch it spin around to a beautiful oblivion … rendevous then I’m through with you … Eve6 “Inside out”
Anyway, just some nifty phrases there. Hope you all have a good weekend.
Love and light go out to my dawg Dave who lost his grandmother suddenly today. Big hugs to you, Davey.
