Today’s question has a musical bent and I give the answer away right there in the title, don’t I? (And don’t go read The Gal’s letter to Paul McCartney because it will make you wonder why you are even bothering to read mine below. It’s just that good.)
Day 13 â†’ A band or artist that has gotten you through some tough ass days. (write a letter.)
“My love is wider than Victoria Lake / Taller than the Empire State
It dives and it jumps and it ripples like the deepest ocean
I can’t give you more than that
Surely you want me back”
Oh girl, you’ve helped me through many a tough time along the way. Your songs speak to an adult love – not a child’s crush. I could not have gotten through my late 20’s – early 30s without you. And then you came back and walked me through my early 40s and some immense and soul-crushing sadness. All I can say is a heartfelt ‘thank you’. Your albums were the first I replaced when I got a cd player – all of them. (I had pretty much worn out the grooves on “Stronger than Pride” and drove my roommates crazy playing it over and over and over.)
While this isn’t the most eloquent letter you’ll get, it might be the one that comes completely from the soul.
