Music and Daily Dan #1

First I just wanted to give a shout out to Landyn and Ed. They've got some bad shit going on in their lives. feel better guys.

So music. music is the tits. I just love it. When you feel like shit or you just want to get away from it all, theres music. So starting today, every now and again when i dont have shit to post about, ill write a post about music, called Music and Daily Dan. Ill show you a song and tell you about how it makes me feel and a specific moment i had with the song. Today will be post number 1.

So a while back, not to long after the aaron thing really cam to a head, i was feeling pretty shitty. It was 2 in the morning and I couldnt sleep and i was just laying in bed. So i got up and decided to go to meijer, which is open 24/7. For the people who live in places where there isnt a meijer, its a huge grocery store. think kroger times 100. Its like my favorite store. But anyway, i live really close, so i just got in my car and drove there. I walked in and headed down toward the sports shit. I get there and i start looking around and i just cant stop thinking about aaron. Then i notice this song start playing over the PA system or whatever.

(ignore the spanish)

I had heard the song before, but right then at meijer, the store empty, me alone and feeling shitty, everything just made sense.

"Holding back the years
Chance for me to escape from all I've known
Holding back the tears
Cause nothing here has grown
I've wasted all my tears
Wasted all those years
And nothing had the chance to be good
Nothing ever could yeah

I'll keep holding on"

The lyrics just made sense. it was a crazy experience.

ok thats it for number 1. look out for number 2!


  1. "Holding Back the Years," Simply Red.

  2. This song is the tits !(thanks I hadn't heard this phrase in a while ;-) I love it. It is wonderfully poignant for your situation as well.
