I know. Another music video post, which doesn’t seem to inspire any of my readers. But I can’t help myself. I have always loved this song, and heard it today on the radio, and it just hit the spot at the moment. (I think it will come as a surprise to many that I listen to music ever. Like what, there was nothing on NPR?)
When it comes to music, I like country, and blues, and classical, and stuff from the ’40’s…not so much modern pop. But I’m open to it. It just seems to me that today’s pop is like a rehash of Bob Dylan with better voices. It’s all too poetic and personal. I am so not into your angst. Been there, done that.
This song probably resonated with me because I’m having a terrible week at work, being a manager person and having to deal with employees to whom I want to say, “Why can’t you be adults? Why must you make things so…complicated. ” It’s a long story.
Of course our lives are complicated, and the older we get the more complicated it is. More baggage.
But there is a lot to be said for staying fresh, and being open to new experiences, and not just hiding in your comfort zone. I think I do a halfway good job of that. So I really like this song, and Avril Lavigne, and I really like this video.
