And with the return of school comes the return of my daily walks, which means I can go back to boring you with my playlists. Seriously though, I’ll only post the ones that seem significant in some way. Like this one from yesterday, which was bizarrely dark.
1. “Dear Joan” by Tabitha’s Secret
2. “Every Breath You Take” by The Police
3. “It Ends Tonight” by All-American Rejects
4. “Impossible” by Anberlin
5. “Harder to Breathe” by Maroon 5
6. “I Can’t Let You Go” by Matchbox Twenty
It was a short walk, but if you know any of these songs . . . I mean, even though “Impossible” and “Harder to Breathe” are upbeat in tempo, they’re dark in content.
“Dear Joan,” btw, is a hauntingly beautiful ballad about abuse. Yay?
And then we get the stalker anthem by The Police and the clingy plea by Matchbox Twenty.
Hmm. What is my iPod trying to say? Maybe it just really missed my company over the summer?
I’m starting slowly with the walks, building myself back up. For one thing, it’s still pretty hot here. For another, I haven’t been walking that much. And the final straw: my oldest brought home a cold from school the first week and I have, of course, caught it. Ugh.
In other news, just finished a draft of a story and sent that off to my critique group. And am working on a screenplay I’ve been commissioned to write. Good things happening, despite my iPod’s dark mood and my stuffy nose.
