T-126 : Lyrical Loser
I think I've mentioned before that I really like music. As much as I can recognize many tunes I'm not that great at lyrics. Today I found a Cat Stevens album at the thrift store. I came home and placed it in my collection then promptly fired up some Cat tunes in Spotify. Moonshadow came on. In this case I can sing the lyrics -- at least the chorus -- but I realized I don't understand what I'm singing. If I'm being followed by a moonshadow is that a good thing or a bad thing? I looked up the wikipedia article to see that it references Cat's having grown up in the city amongst bright lights then having gone to the country where a bright moon cast his shadow and he was amazed. I guess that's a good thing, then. Getting out of the city and into the country get's us closer to our roots and to what really matters, right? I think I like being followed by a moonshadow.
