LCD Soundsystem – “All My Friends”
August 27, 2008
I’ve been posting more about music recently than I had intended, but what the hell…you stick with what you know (or enjoy), right? This song by LCD Soundsystem isn’t anything new, it’s just an amazing song that I’ve listened to consistently for the past six months or so and jammed out to walking home from work tonight. There’s one line in particular that strikes a chord with me every time I hear it. When James Murphy sings, “You spend the first five years trying to get with the plan/and the next five years trying to be with your friends again” I can’t help but think he’s speaking to people my age trying to figure out what the shit they want to do with their lives. This song makes me feel nostalgic, but I’m not really sure what for. I hate to heap my twentysomething awkwardness upon you, but what the hell…you stick with what you know, right? Damn I want to see them live.
