I was at the gym this morning doing my thing, listening to my music and trying desperately to look stronger than I am, when a song came on my iPod that struck a chord with me.
The song was “Makes Me Wonder” by Maroon 5.
I can see the looks now.
Yeah, I have a fucking Maroon 5 song on my iPod.
Yeah, I know how shitty they are, but I don’t care, when that song comes on I start rocking out.
The other thing that happens when this song comes on is that it makes me feel extremely white.
Now, I’m a white dude, so I feel white all the time – but something about this song just makes me really feel it.
From the moment that the guitars hit that catchy riff, I get this sudden urge to go buy some khakis, discuss the many aspects of global warming, and read the latest issue of The New Yorker.
Am I the only one who feels this way?
Is it even okay to be writing about this?
And when is the next time those guys go on tour?
I’m so there.
