So I was listening to a local "mix" station last night, and a song came on that hit me just right. It was slow, bluesy, and just the right amount of hopeful. I allowed myself to get wrapped up in it, and just floated in the middle of the song as if on a raft cruising down the most serene of rivers, when suddenly I was struck by horrified realization of a practically Sophoclean nature:
I know who sings this.
My entire (musical) value system is now thrown into a bit of a tailspin.
