Song of the Day

“Love Sponge” by Buju Banton

The beginning of my relationship with IC is marked by bittersweet music. We were best friends who fell in love, obviously it couldn’t work out. This wasn’t a movie, this wasn’t The O.C., it couldn’t really be this easy. We kept each other at arm’s length, it was too scary otherwise, and pretended it wasn’t happening. “I want you” by Common, “Do You” by Ne-Yo, “Homecoming” by Kanye were some of our songs, we’d torture ourselves with songs of longing and loss, and relationships that just couldn’t be.

When we gave in to it, decided to be together, told our surprised families and friends, well, it was, and is, magic. The music we associated with our relationship got happier. We’d listen to “Hot Thing” by Talib Kweli, “Let Me Know” by Collie Buddz, “Good Life” by Kanye West, among others. Somehow along the way, this Buju Banton tune became “our” song. Happy birthday, baby, I never know you would really feel so nice/with you I’m in no hurry.

After all that, *this* is what you got him? Eh, he’d have preferred the array of Tweezermans.

And no best friends fall in love on the O.C….unless you mean Anna and Cohen, but they didn’t work out because he was really in love with Summer the whole time.

A SONG, one song, what els? Whatever it is that you deside to give him for his birthday is still not enough, he deserves more, more music, more love, more laughter, he’s a D I R E C T O R! HAPPY BDAY to a wonderful person and to Mrs. Citi
