Sublime marathon. Well maybe not since two songs hardly make a marathon. More like a musical sprint.
Let’s all pop a cap in Sancho shall we? Just kidding. I don’t even know the guy. I wonder if he’s a bastard in the same way Hope is fickle and Life, she’s a bitch.
The lyrics are deep despite the beat. These are singalong for sure but if you really listen you might be like me and think … did I really just sing pop a cap in sancho? Well yes, yes I did! And it was on auto pilot. I memorized these words a very long time ago.
The second song What I Got sort of played out before me. I passed a bus stop while running errands. A single rider was sitting on the bench. Eyes shut tight, face raised to the sunshine. Rocking back and forth with a grimace on her face.
Pain. Everywhere one looks. But there was beauty too. In the sunshine. And I can’t possibly know her story in a two second glimpse. Still hits me. Makes me think.
And with that, I am done. And all of you are probably thinking “J-Dub next time just post the songs; we don’t need your spin”. Ha! Have you learned nothing about me in our time together? LOL.
As always more to come.
