Bob,
I've done that, but it's been a while. I thought it was my own kwirk. A dozen years ago I used to drive out to a large bridge in my area, the "Thomas-Vincent Bridge" near San Pedro, Calif. and drive slow with my windows down. It's high above the bay waters and I could see city lights for miles around at the top. I felt like I was flying.

30 years ago I used to drive to the mountains to sit in the dark and cry.

Wow, Keith! I've been over that same bridge a zillion times (I'm from Huntington Beach, just down the coast.) It always freaked me out, though, especially at night or when it was windy. My late-night cry haunts were from Huntington down to Dana Point and through the wilds of South Orange County. Great roads to drive/cry on, at least after 10 pm. I knew I couldn't be the only one!

CSA was two years behind me and outwardly I was doing reasonably well. Inside, I still wrestled with demons. All the same, the song was timely. This is probably NOT what you think of when you think 80's music.

Will, it's cool to know the story behind your avatar. And I really like the song. (You just introduced them to an even more distant audience) I've been listening to a lot of 80s music while I've been studying recently and you are right, it really doesn't say 80s. It's quite different, in a good way. (I got quite obsessed with Roxy Music. Probably because they have a song on one of the radio stations in GTA Vice City, which was the first game me and my dad played when we got a computer.)

These are my contributions to the thread.... This is a guy from Iceland, musically I don't think the song is awesome, but I really liked the lyrics.



I always loved this song, but after I saw them perform it live I loved it even more. Even the name, Addict With a Pen, it kind of says something to me.



Ok, since I've accidently started a water theme I'll add this. I got pretty obsessed with Frank Ocean last year. I guess the song is about love? But I always wondered what it was he was swimming from. For some reason all the youtube videos of this suck. This is the least bad. I really like everything on his Channel Orange album.



I also wanted to add (since I made this all about water) that I found that listening to rain sounds is very relaxing and helps me sleep. I actually prefer ones with thunder, but I know not everyone likes that. I downloaded some tracks from Spotify, but youtube probably has tons too. Might be worth a try for anyone who has trouble sleeping.

Heard this song again this morning, and finally read the lyrics. Good stuff.

"Head Full Of Doubt / Road Full Of Promise"
The Avett Brothers

There's a darkness upon me that's flooded in light
In the fine print they tell me what's wrong and what's right
And it comes in black and it comes in white
And I'm frightened by those that don't see it

When nothing is owed or deserved or expected
And your life doesn't change by the man that's elected
If you're loved by someone, you're never rejected
Decide what to be and go be it

There was a dream and one day I could see it
Like a bird in a cage I broke in and demanded that somebody free it
And there was a kid with a head full of doubt
So I'll scream til I die and the last of those bad thoughts are finally out

There's a darkness upon you that's flooded in light
And in the fine print they tell you what's wrong and what's right
And it flies by day and it flies by night
And I'm frightened by those that don't see it

There was a dream and one day I could see it
Like a bird in a cage I broke in and demanded that somebody free it
And there was a kid with a head full of doubt
So I'll scream til I die and the last of those bad thoughts are finally out

There was a dream and one day I could see it
Like a bird in a cage I broke in and demanded that somebody free it
And there was a kid with a head full of doubt
So I'll scream til I die and the last of those bad thoughts are finally out

There's a darkness upon me that's flooded in light
In the fine print they tell me what's wrong and what's right
There's a darkness upon me that's flooded in light
And I'm frightened by those that don't see it

Sometimes I get depressed that I don't work, and really probably never will again (at least not a real career kinda job). Being on disability can be kind of depressing, having mental health issues is depressing. But this song always makes me feel better, and this ukulele cover of the song is even better.

Thank God It's Monday
by NoFX (Covered by Jordan D White)

Monday is my favorite time of year

I'm gonna tell you what I really think I like about Mondays
Cause they feel like Saturdays
When you don't gotta go to work
Every day is a holiday
I wake up when I want to
I do anything I wanna do
Can't wait for Tuesday

I really never liked Fridays (I don't)
I can't do what I wanna do (Like to)
Sold out at the movies (Go out)
Can't eat at the restaurants (Weekends)
Everybody want a good time
But the bar's full of cigarette smoke
I think I'll stay home
I think I'll wait for Monday

I live a 5 day weekend
I gotta year long holiday
Thank God it's Monday
The only place that I gotta go be
Is at the show or on the first tee
Thank God for irony
Nevermind the aggravation, modulation
Gimme another key

I'll tell you why I like Tuesdays (Wednesday)
Cause the're kinda like Christmas (New Years)
Come to think about Wednesdays (Thursday)
Are a little like Hanukkah (Every day is good)
Thursday's Thanksgiving
I'm talking about good living
I'll think I give thanks
Thank God it's Monday
Thank God it's Monday
Thank God it's Monday

Thank God it's Monday
Thank God it's Monday
Thank God it's Monday

Thank God it's Monday
