30 Day Music Challenge: Day 18

A song from the year you were born.

Wow. What a trip. At first, I considered just going with the song that was #1 the week I was born but decided against that because….well, because it’s kind of blah. Then I started thinking about some hokey stuff: “Candida” is a trip; “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” is great. When I was in grad school, “Cecilia” was having a bit of a revival, so I considered that.

There’s more than a few songs I’d really like to choose, but ultimately I went with one that reflects what was going on in the world I was born into. We were slogging our way through Southeast Asia, fighting a war we really had no business fighting. Young men dying because our government couldn’t commit to fighting the war as it should be fought and not getting out because of the egos of our leaders.

What is it good for? Absolutely nothing.

I consider myself a bit of a loner. I tend to think of myself as a one-man wolf pack. I like old school sneakers, baggy jeans, and oversized sweatshirts. I believe there is no such thing as a short sleeve dress shirt. I like neckties. I do not understand camping, car racing, or algebra – but I can camp and have been known to go a little faster than the speed limit. I have NEVER been known to do a quadratic equation.
