It’s been stated more than once to me in the past year or so that my life should be followed by a reality TV crew. I’m not sure exactly why that is. I certainly don’t feel that the trials, tribulations, and actions that make up my life warrant the need to have it shown on TV. Could it be because I don’t have a TV and thus don’t have a driving desire to watch other reality shows? What could be less fun to watch – a show about a once famous celebrity/musician who is dealing with a loss of fame, or a show about a musician who is working their ass off with great music but not a household name?
In the past couple of days I’ve had more than once family member or friend ask me how I can keep a positive outlook despite what’s going on around me. I guess that’s where the fascination might come in. I don’t like to dwell on the crap, I like to move forward and remain positive. Do I get into twists of needing to dwell, yes on occasion. But once I do a bit of talking about it, it’s done and I move on.
For me right now it’s about sending out a copy of the library that was requested. That to me is a great thing. Getting the music out to be used and make some money. The more it gets used, the more I will eventually see in return.
Speaking of music. I think I need to get on with it. Here’s today’s pick. It’s Mr. Brightside by The Killers. Why? Well mostly because of a lame breakup of a myself and a woman late last year. She ended up lying about her desires. Instead of being able to come out up front and let me know either feelings, needs, desires, she decided it would be better to make me guess at what she either was needing, wanting or feeling. Even the way she ended it was pretty lame. No clean break. No closure.
Unlike the character in this song – some of which I can relate to. Though I will say, I never found her out with another man. The part I relate to is, that I know I’m a catch and I remain positive about the world. Musically this song is frantic. A massive run on of words. That makes it difficult to sing in a live setting. I haven’t seen them perform it live, so it would be interesting to see if he can run, jump and move around while singing all these lines. Oddly it’s one of the few if not the only song I can think of where it’s one part repeated twice, lyrically. Strange.
Somehow they manage to wrap it all together and make it work.
