Absolutely love this song. The sound. The lyrics. Everything. Sometimes life sucks but you will always have your good friends to commiserate with. And many of times all it takes is sharing the same feeling of sadness with someone to break the sadness. Misery loves company.
And we're sitting in the rain
And we're feeling like the weather.
You could say that we're alone
But we're lonely together
We're all in it together now
As we all fall apart
And we're swapping little pieces
Of our broken little hearts.
Here is the writer explaining how the song came to be.
“It’s one of the most literal songs that I’ve ever written, and it was important for me because I had been in a bad state for awhile,” McMicken explains. “I had this one particular night where I was particularly depressed, to the extent that I realized that I needed to get out of the house. So I walked to this bar about four blocks from my house, and I don’t’ even drink, but I knew I’d run into people that I know, and I ran into my friends Jackie and John, who are both the main characters in the song. It turned out that Jackie and John had arrived at the bar that night in a very similar position, where they were both really bummed out about stuff in their lives, and I stumbled into this situation with two people that I could really easily commiserate with. We sat and talked for a couple of hours, and the way I felt upon leaving there versus how I felt when I showed up was such a radical shift that I couldn’t help but feel like there was some greater significance or something to be incredibly thankful for. I went home that night and I wrote that song. I was just thinking back and paraphrasing the things that they had said and throwing in the things that I had said and my assessment in the chorus. And then when we recorded it, me, Jackie, and John sang it. That was something that I was really proud of.”
Other good Dr. Dog songs....
Another great song lyrically. All about living in the now. Enjoy the moment. Don't over think things.
Are you moving much too fast?
And the good times that just don't last
If you're always on the go
Make and angel in the snow
This is the first song that got me into Dr. Dog. And I guess it was mostly because of their sound cause I still don't really know what this is about. If I had to guess I'd say its about all the musicians in his city/neighborhood moving on and getting famous and he's still just hanging around. I don't know though.
The neon lights on Baltimore
Every shadow's getting famous
In some backyard, in some plastic chair
Hoping these cigarettes will save us
Here we go again
Here we go again
Heart it Races
This is there most popular song. It's not an original but it might as well be at this point. The original song is fucking whack and terrible. This version is fun and enjoyable.
I like the Yankees, watching TV shows and talking about stuff.
