The song that made me long for a life in California

How a video made me day dream for another life

Rick peeled back the layers of this song that makes me so melancholy for a time that never happened. I sold my youth to the military to get to California to live a dream that was manufactured by MTV.

The first time I made it to Palm Springs and the pit stop that the green Austin Healey had burned into my soul, I wanted a picture but was too poor to even own a camera, I had to focus and make it a permanent fixture in my bank of youthful memories. The smell of the heat of sand and asphalt and the realism of this is kinda crappy didn’t stop the feeling of well, now what.

It’s taken over 35 years to stumble on a breakdown of this song. The group Tears for Fears are making a comeback. There is this push one last push to bring them back and pull on the heart strings of fans that fell in love with the song and the group. To see them now as I see myself, and older man whose youth has long sense past, feels like the world somehow past me by yet I can smile and be thankful for my outcome. God has graced my life. And I am thankful.

The song still brings me joy. And longing. Seems like the 80’s have never left. Same situations in the world today as then. Rich eating the poor. Wars. And “everybody wants to rule, the world”

See children back in the day…

The internet was slow. Some folks who didn’t know what chasing tale was figured out in their spare time that you could separate audio from CD’s and use a algorithm to shrink the song into a smaller file size and place it on a hard drive. Then using the internet for its intended purpose you could allow other people access to your music collection. That you paid for. Cause in the real world if you exchanged money for an item and you had possession of that item in a physical form it was called ownership. But some cunts with a piece of paper that said they spent a shitton of money for a fancy title called lawyer begged to differ and now we have blue hair fuckers calling themselves non-binary unicorns….
