I decided to paint today. At home. AND listen to music. Doesn’t sound like such a big deal I know, but it is to me as I’ve been living in total silence for maybe the last couple of years. And getting myself to paint outside of my classes… well that’s a whole other story. Anyway, I like using the Genius Mix feature from iTunes which selects songs from your library according to any style you feel in the mood for. I chose Brit Pop & Rock and just now was listening to Depeche Mode’s Freelove. As I was listening to it, I interpreted it as “Freedom” instead, which sounds just about right. Depeche Mode, wow, they always brings me back at least a couple of decades, when I was hitting all the specialized record shops to buy their vinyls. They weren’t the big pop sensation they’ve become back then. Just a really cool underground band with lyrics that really spoke to me. I guess they still do. Some things never change.
