I always want to save the best for last. That chicken skin which you’d find on the side of my plate every time I have McDonald’s for lunch — don’t be deceived, I don’t do that because I won’t eat it. That pretty dress I just got and excited about but won’t wear unless there is a very significant occasion. That action movie on my files but won’t watch until I finish all the so-so ones. So I will say, Cornetto did a great job when they decided to put the chocolate syrup at the bottom-most part of the cone.
It was the very first that came into my mind when I thought of my Music category here. But I did not push it to be my first entry in the category. Why, I don’t understand myself and right now I am asking what the hell I was thinking. Because I save the best for last, that is, maybe.
But it’s just so good I cannot wait for the right time because every moment that I listen to it is right. The oomph, I just can’t explain. Every time Igor plays the intro, something sends me to another dimension, to a not quite comfortable place, but it’s where I want to be. And that’s just the start.
Then Elena speaks, and everything is better than it already is. I close my eyes. You think that I am overplaying it. That it’s on loop and mercilessly on repeat. Yes, you are freaking right. And here’s more: there’s no other on the playlist.
I start to breathe deeply which prepares my heart for a series of palpitations as Remi hit the drums. The sound and vibrations make me feel empowered, I picture myself walking slowly towards my war, and I’m ready to fight it. In reality, my eyes are still closed and my fingers are tapping the table, following the beat. I’m proud to say I kinda perfected that after x number of times. There’s not a single moment when I am listening to it that I never went teary-eyed or actually cried. All I can say is, wow.
I’ve never been this absorbed with a song and all my life I’ve been trying to figure out what my favorite song is and now I finally did. Okay that’s shallow but it’s just too perfect and that’s not even a small deal for me. The song is my life and my life is the song. I can’t pick the right words and I know everything that I have said is just crazy, crazy, crazy and you’re thinking I’m on a high (yes that’s how beautiful it is) which is why you’re giving me that “what the hell is wrong with this person” look. But no there’s nothing wrong, it’s just that, I need to tell the world how awesome this is! I tweet about it all the time but I just have to dedicate a more special space for it because it’s worth it. It’s my life, after all. It strengthens my being as Margo Roth Spiegelman.
