“This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody)”
For best results, please have the following tune playing (loud) whilst reading this post…
Pick me up and turn me round
(So I) guess I must be having fun
The less we say about it the better
Make it up as we go along
Feet on the ground
Head in the sky
It’s ok I know nothing’s wrong . . nothing
Hi yo I got plenty of time
Hi yo you got light in your eyes
And you’re standing here beside me
I love the passing of time
Always for love
Cover up say goodnight . . . say goodnight
But I guess I’m already there
I come home she lifted up her wings
Guess that this must be the place
Did I find you, or you find me?
There was a time Before we were born
If someone asks, this where I’ll be . . . where I’ll be
Hi yo We drift in and out
Hi yo sing into my mouth
Out of all those kinds of people
You got a face with a view
Share the same space for a minute or two
Love me till I’m dead
Cover up the blank spots
Hit me on the head Ah ooh

But seriously, LCD Soundsystem has been my training music of choice lately. So awesome.
The album “This is Happening” not only has a terrifically fitting title for how I feel about this trip, but has an incredibly crafted theme and driving motif. The uptempo songs and heartfelt, meaningful lyrics do a lot to motivate a guy to run uphill.
I’m certainly not an expert on reviewing music, but as non-experts typically say, “I know what I like.” And this, I like.
It’s not like this is a new album, either (couple years old), I’ve just recently rediscovered it.
Dance Yrself Clean, I Can Change, and Home have been on repeat for days. If you haven’t listened to it, I highly recommend picking it up. Check it out on YouTube or better yet, pay for it with real money.
