There are always those songs that bring a smile to your face no matter what is going on… or how old you’ve gotten.
I always remember the first time I heard the Velvet Underground.
I was 15, and this really cool boy with the perfect blue hair made me a mixtape, that was just the right amount of suburban rebellion. And it had this song on it… it sounded nothing like the N*SYNC and Britney Spears on the radio… it was completely different.
It sounded like… joy.
And I never looked back, I searched for my own sounds, found my own soundtracks.
I played that CD until it skipped in like 3 different parts and later succumbed to the heart-breaking ending of melting in my car. #livingincaliforniaproblems.
and you can listen to the song here:
I should go to sleep.
