I am going to attempt to maintain a series called “The Long Ride to Work” for the next couple weeks where I highlight the music I listen to and the random thoughts that accompany my ride to work.
Today’s selection is: “Warning Sign” by Coldplay
I’m a sucker for any soundtrack compiled by Zach Braff. The soundtracks for Garden State and The Last Kiss are fabosh…possibly better than the movies themselves (The Garden State soundtrack won a Grammy)!! I discovered this Coldplay song on The Last Kiss soundtrack and fell in love. I like Coldplay, but I don’t have any of their albums and some of their songs I really really hate – ie this gem. I’m not hating–go ahead and make fun of me about Lady Gaga…I know you are dying to…
Why do I like to jam to this song? I’m going to be honest, so you better not hate–especially because I know you’re doing the same thing!!! Right now, I like to think all of the guys who dissed me to the face will listen to “Warning Sign” and think, “Damn, that Jamie is the one that got away.” <Insert them crying on their commute to work over me.> I mean really, I’m the “island” that they passed on…The overweight, really weird “island” who once tried to memorize the Scream script and destroyed a lip-synch performance by the group Three Wishes (Sorry Liz and Pattie!). “And the truth is” I know they’re kicking themselves for dumping me.
I love to irrationally relate songs to me life–past, present, and future! Here are the lyrics so you can do the same thing!
