MAN WAS I DRUNK!
I never played little league baseball when I was growing up and I don't regret it. My best friend did, and it seemed like a chore. I think his dads' visible disappointments at his games, hurt him. I know it bothered me. When I hear this song, though, it does remind me of those times, that age; everything that I had going on and the surreal feel of it all. This is that kind of song. I really love this song. It is epic. Someone I know said " do you like Rilo Kiley? and before I could answer, she promised me a mixed cd.
I still have it and I love it even though I don't talk to her, ever. Never had much else in common besides loving music. The whole cd is good and eclectic, but this particular song has me dancing and swaying and jumping like a madman. I cannot get enough of it or the merry-go-round organ. It has so many levels and phases.I don't know what it does to me, but halfway through the song when, it slows down, I pop on my roller skates and I slowly let the wind blow through my imaginary feathered-back hair. I then suddenly crash into walls like a spooked quail when the song starts picking up again. When it finally picks up again to it's highest heights and the guitars are wailing, I'm throwing confetti out of my pockets and streamers are tied to me as I roll past, at high speeds as if in a roller derby float in a parade in 1976. WEEEEE. Then the end part inevitably comes on I begin to wind down and think is that a pinata I've busted open on the floor behind me and did I send out invitations?. I love a good song.
