LYRICAL BEAUTY or HOW’D I END UP HERE

Was in a conversation about 2020 and politics and someone said “this is going nowhere” and in my head I said “one last time let’s go there” because somehow, Paolo Nutini’s magical song from 2006 jumped into my head.

#iamgrateful and #iamthankful for the connections our mind makes for us, bringing me all the way back here. To this song.

He was 19 when he created this. When I was 19 I had barely created memories, let alone anything memorable.

How did politics get me to Paolo Nutini?

The beauty of words phrases and stories I guess?

What he did with those two sentences dances on my mind, my tongue, and depending on the moment, my heart. “Sure I can accept that we’re going nowhere

But one last time, let’s go there”

Applies to so many things? Like in this case the spark that was politics in the US but wow, so many things.

ONE

You all read my take on Ed Sheeran and how I love cultures, songs, music, anything, being mashed up. Well #aimgrateful and #iamthankful for Chris Cornell always taking on new music to put his stamp on it. Whether Prince, Bob Marley … or in one of my favorite cases, bringing together U2 and Metallica. He did something to take mashups to a new level with a guitar and a voice that even the best DJs ITW have to appreciate. Enjoy. If you’re a fan of any of the three, I think you’ll know be a fan of all of ’em. Rock in Peace, CC.
