"I just can't figure out nothing."
We all reach a point in our lives where we feel like we've been going in cricles. Maybe you've just lost your job, or your significant other and you feel as if you've just been moving laterally.
When you spend most of your time moving from side to side, you start to feel like you're missing out on all the things that people who move forward get to experience. Jealousy strikes, and you ask yourself...what did I put all of this work in for?
I was listening to my indie rock running playlist the other day while I was...of course, running and one of the songs struck me in an extremely different way than it usually does.
"Barely Legal" by The Strokes has often been overlooked as one of their best tracks. I never really paid much attention to it until it caught my ear the other day. It's really about feeling stuck, and trying to figure out what you want in life, or in the next 10 minutes. Decisions. Decisions.
It wasn't necessarily the beat of the song, which could be mistaken as uptempo and boppy to the uneducated listener, it was the lyrics.
