Eric Clapton – Wonderful Tonight

Courtesy must go to fellow music luminary, Karl Pilkington, for opening up a whole new perspective on this song for me:

The voice of the song is a little cripple. He’s wheelchair-bound. And his woman’s trying her best to take good care of him as she drags him along to a party.

Mind Blown.

Joni Mitchell – Big Yellow Taxi

‘Don’t it always seem to go, that you don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone?’

Ain’t that the truth. It wasn’t until these haemorrhoids really started acting up that I missed the simple joy of a pain-free bloodless shit.

Sharon Van Etten – Every Time the Sun Comes Up

‘I washed your dishes but I shit in your bathroom’

Never one to mince her words, Sharon Van Etten there expressing a sentiment we all feel at times.

Just appreciate me more.

Hundred Waters – Xtalk

I know we’ll face naysayers aplenty. Those who say it can’t be done. You literally cannot revive this blog because it’s a waste of everyone’s time, there’s no artistic or financial incentive and most of all there’s no fucking audience. That we lack the constitution to see anything through and that all it ever was, was a desperate attempt to have some semblance of creativity in our otherwise dull and unfulfilled lives,

And to those claims I say maybe you’re right. Maybe we will just do 3 more posts and then forget about it for another year. Maybe once the initial euphoria of phony creativity has faded it’ll be back to resentment towards facebook friends who have better lives than us and satirising current events for our own amusement.

But one thing’s for sure: we won’t know till we try! So come on I urge you comrades let’s give this another go. Together we’re unbreakable, we can do anything. And that goes for the fans too, we need you on board- none of this works without you, absolutely none of it. It’s your support that keeps me from ending it all really (Not just the blog but my life). All the emails and postcards and letters I’ve received: ‘Your blog really helped me get through my parents bitter divorce’ ‘Without your excellent music taste and witty insights I’d have no reason to get up in the morning’ ‘If you don’t restart the blog within 10 days I am going to kill myself and take several people with me’. These correspondences have really helped get me through our absence and put things into perspective.

We’re back. And we’re back for good.
