The other day I was questioning whether I should use lyrics from songs to convey certain thoughts and feelings, instead of my own. I had just posted the song "One Man Army" by the band Our Lady Peace. Naturally that set me off to listening to music from that band from the moment on until...hell, I'm still listening to it.
My love for that group and their music goes way back, a decade or more. When my kids were younger, the 3 of us used to sing along, out loud to songs from the CD: "Happiness..Is Not A Fish You Can Catch" while tooling around in the car together. We also listened to Spiritual Machines, another CD just packed w/great music. You know what they say: Families that pretend to be ROCK STARS together, stay together...or something like that, tee hee. What an amazing memory that is...
But I digress...I was really re-immersing myself in their music and listened once again to the some "Clumsy" off the album by the same name. I could and can relate to that song on several levels, from both points of view; the author and the subject of that song.
Instead of following my usual pattern of just reprinting the lyrics, I decided to embed the video for that tune here. So, with out further ado...Ladies and Gentleman, Our Lady Peace:
