Stuck in My Head 2.2.2012

I was on the train this morning, and my mind was preoccupied with thoughts of my professional future. Where I'm trying to go, what I'm trying to do, and who I want to rely on for those things. It's been weighing on me, and anybody who knows me knows that, when something weighs on me, it can be like carrying the weight of the world. I drive people nuts with it.

Thing is, I've been asked, repeatedly, about my professional life, "when was the last time it made you happy?" The truth is...talking about on a consistent basis...It's been so long ago I can't remember it. It's been "one step forward, two steps back" for so long, and I feel I have to work so damn hard for something exciting to happen for me, that I'm just tired.

I was listening to the Robert Plant & Alison Krauss Raising Sand album, mainly because I wanted something soothing, and this track started. It was one of those "Springsteen moments," as I call them (because it happens extremely often with The Boss, in my case), where a song just encapsulated everything I was thinking and feeling.

Plus, the video is really cool, and T-Bone Burnett is actually in it.

Gone Gone Gone (Done Moved On)
Performed by Robert Plant and Alison Krauss
Written by Don Everly and Phil Everly

Some sunny day-hay baby
When everything seems okay, baby
Youll wake up and find out youre alone
Cause Ill be gone
Gone, gone, gone really gone
Gone, ga-gone, cause you done me wrong

Everyone that you meet baby
As you walk down the street baby
Will ask you why youre walkin all alone
Why youre on your own
Just say Im gone
Gone, gone, gone
Gone, ga-gone, cause you done me wrong

If you change your way baby
You might get me to stay baby
Ya better hurry up if ya dont wanna be alone
Or Ill be gone
Gone, gone, gone
Really gone
Gone, Ga-gone
Cause you done me wrong

  1. Love this song, and that whole album for that matter. It was such an odd paring on paper, yet the results speak for themselves.
