I will miss this band forever. I owe so many good times (as well as spilled drinks & angry neighbors) to dancing to The First Single in my living room with all the N32 regulars. So many near car crashes trying to get all the necessary claps in. Several long car rides all over the state of New York (one with a boy I hated). And one of the best dance parties/shows I’ve ever attended at Steel with every music loving new college friend I’d made. I will always regret missing my last chance to see them because I couldn’t get over myself.
Jen:And why is it so important to you that I listen to this song?
Charlie:Because, once you hear Dolly Parton’s original 1974 recording of I Will Always Love You, the song made popular and sucky on the Bodyguard Soundtrack. You will truly and possibly for the first time in your entire life, know what it means not to suck. And at that point your entire universe will turn upside down. Everything that used to seem normal to you, will suddenly seem right.
Jen:And that is a good thing?
Charlie:Of course it is a good thing. What is music for, if it is not to subvert all you expectations and blow your mind every once in a while.
The first real spring day we have I am going on a long drive to nowhere while wearing flips with a window down and having a massive Saves the Day sing-a-long. Guests are welcome but only if you can sing with me.
