As I sit here. Forcefully half watching “Pretty in Pink” and Half listening to music with my cat asleep on me, I feel the sudden urge to type. Now, it’s not that I don’t like “Pretty in Pink” it’s a cult classic and very feel good, just not in the mood to watch it. Just wanted to clarify that. Now please, don’t expect any real topic in this post. I suppose like my other post it will end up being a big rambling session. That might repel some, but frankly I don’t care. I have fun in the process, so why not? Right?
Macy Gray- “I Try” It’s stuck in my head. A bit cheesy and feel good of a song, but sometimes that’s the best thing, wouldn’t you agree? I will assume you all just said yes or at least semi agreed with one of those little head nods we are all guilty of doing on the computer. “I tried to say Goodbye and I chocked. Tried to walk away and I stumbled.” Seems musicians go through a lot more heartbreak then most others. Either that, or just express it in a more catchy way with a “sick beat” or “nasty tune” Those are phrases I recently learned. I know, I’m behind and old, but it turns my head in circles how music can be “nasty” and “sick” Usually I stay away from things that are described that way, but the times are changing I suppose. ANYWAY…I’ve been through my share of heartache and trials and tribulations in the love department and I think me being recently single can protest to that. I feel being able to write a song or something could make these things a lot easier alas not all of us have those same talents. I, on the other hand, can make some witty joke about it, but usually whoever I’m seeing doesn’t seem to think it’s very “funny” to make some sorta of joke throughout it all. I feel we all have little secret hidden talents that can help us through life. Love, enemies, girlfriends, boyfriends, family, friends, school, jobs, LIFE.
I get over these things by writing scripts on these situations and putting a funny twist on it. I hope “enter ex girlfriends name here” never finds the script called “Doesn’t Feel Good Now” and I hope that “Enter Old Time Friend’s Name here” doesn’t see the script called “See? I Told Ya!” and I hope “enter other ex girlfriends name here” doesn’t see my script called “Seriously? Him?” Although Musicians have a harder time covering these stories. I can say the story is fake and change everyone’s name, but in a song it’s a different story. Sure you can change a name, but if they say its not real, someone else wrote it, people tend to get a little disappointed. Sorry Musicians for the hard cover up, but it must feel good to be so blunt about it.
I wonder, how does everyone else do it? Get over these things? Macy Gray Chokes when she says goodbye and stumbles when she walks away. I write. People sing. People compose. What do you people do? Don’t just nod in from of the computer screen. Answer me. Why not?
