Sad About the Times
You are alone in a hot tub on a warm summer night back in the ’70s. Scarcely a week earlier she was right there with you, laughing, gazing at the stars, the FM radio playing the top pop hits as you frolicked in the gurgling water. Now she’s gone. Really gone.
Then a song you never heard before comes on the radio. You feel like it reaches into some place that has already been prepared in your mind. It is as if the song is reading you. The song really knows she’s gone, and more. What a great hook, you think.
Then you never hear it again. You remember it really captured the way you felt, it sounded sad but somehow had a healing quality. Down but not out. It seemed familiar the first time you heard it, as if it had cut to the front of the line while the other meaningful songs in your life were taking years to get there. What was that song?
I have good news for you. It’s on this album even if it’s not on this album. Anthology.net
Wenn man heutzutage beim Podcast-Spaziergang einen Song entdeckt, kann man zum Glück in den Playlist-Notes von Popcasting nachgucken. Da Maybe Someday/Maybe Never von Dennis Stoner schon der zweite Track ist, ist das Album schnell gefunden.
