“I hope to refine music, study it, try to find some area that I can unlock. I don’t quite know how to explain it but it’s there. These can’t be the only notes in the world, there’s got to be other notes some place, in some dimension, between the cracks on the piano keys”. - Marvin Gaye
In case you weren’t aware. Marvin Gaye was a babe.
Rod Stewart - “Maggie May”
“Wake up Maggie I think I got something to say to you…”
I don’t know what it is about this song, but man, it makes me nostalgic, happy and sad all at the same time. Maybe because I no longer have the option to spend my summers running around, falling in like, and contemplating not coming home.
I know I’ll be ridiculed for the comparison but it reminds me a lot of hellogoodbye’s “Bonnie Taylor Shakedown” and also of the summer Kevin Arnold & Winnie spent at the resort in the final season of The Wonder Years…
