First, we need to have a moment of silence for Dan Fogelberg. DO NOT tease me if you think he was lame. His music is part of a collection that was intrinsic to my childhood and intertwined with my memories. This is my favorite song, “Same Old Lang Syne”:
And, for the second time in a week, I had plans to write about some thoughts I’ve been rolling around, but in pure irony I need to step away from this portal to the outside world and go find a train, feed second breakfasts and switch laundry.
I’m sorry I’ve been sort of cluttered and disjointed lately.
Because there is no such word and it’s a stupid song title.
So, I hate the band Oasis. (Well, hate’s a strong word. How about: I dislike with the fire of a thousand suns.) And it never ceases to amaze me that there are covers of their song ‘Wonderwall’. More than one in fact. By people I respect like Dave Grohl (and Paul Anka but his version’s worse than the original somehow). Whatever.
I was given a mix CD a few years ago that had a cover of it (by Ryan Adams*) and I refused to listen to it on elitist principle for months. But then I accidentally did once and grudgingly admitted it’s a great cover.
So when I dug up my old CD case while driving this morning (with Jack hollering GO, DAMNIT! GO! to the other drivers) I found Chris’ mix. It’s been a long time since I heard that cover and was again, grudgingly, pleasantly surprised how much I like it. So because it’s one of those days and I really don’t feel like coming up with anything more interesting, I’m just going to post the song. And it would have been a much less verbose introduction, but it’s important to me that everyone know just how much it pains me to acknowledge Oasis. I must be feeling the holiday spirit.
Anyway I hope everyone is having the beginning of a good week. Ciao.
*It also pains me to acknowledge that this version was apparently used on The OC. But so was Jeff Buckley’s ‘Hallelujah’, so that line was crossed years ago and I don’t think it can be used against me.
