Yes, I know I didn't complete my Rock Hall edition, but I just couldn't bring myself to pick a Skynyrd song. I mean, Skynyrd? Come on! They're right up there with Bob Seger and ZZ Top as far as I'm concerned. So, I skipped it. That's right, I just bypassed over old "Free Bird", hoping you wouldn't notice. And look, you didn't!
This week we return to the 90's. That decade from so long ago. I can't believe that this song and it's awesome video are 10 years old. More than that. 12 freakin' years my friend!
I've been married that long. 12 YEARS!
My parents are in town again and I look at them and a) marvel at the longevity of their relationship b) hope that I am as good as a parent as they were and c) hope I don't turn out anything like them when I'm their age.
We've been over this before. I love my folks. But what is it about our elders driving us crazy? And the guilt in feeling that, huh? I mean, just writing what I just did has my stomach tightening up. How did they get such a grip on our lives. And am I doing that to my own kids? Sometimes I catch myself doing it.
Shame on you, Malchus!
Anyway, somehow this song ties in with my parents... Oh, right. Buddy Holly was popular in their day and that's the title of today's great song by Weezer.
