Waiting For My Real Life To Begin

The other day I was driving somewhere and had my iPod hooked up to my car stereo. I was brave and set it on random. I have really eclectic taste in music, so the random setting on my iPod is dangerous. It's not unusual to hear some kick ass indie rock song followed by Aqua or something equally campy (guilty pleasure, don't judge). I generally avoid putting my music on random for this reason, but I tried it again the other day and this song came on:

I had completely forgotten about this song. I think my brother gave it to me a long time ago and it's been hiding in a corner on my iPod for months. I know I've listened to it before and thought "Oh, that's a nice song," but when I heard it in my car the other day I think it nearly made me cry. It so sums up where I'm at right now. I'm waiting for my real life to begin.

Anyway, I know a lot of people that read this blog are probably in the same boat, so I thought I'd share the song. It's got a strange mixture of hope and sadness that means something a little different every time I listen to it. Pretty good for coming from the man responsible for "I come from the land down under."

That's all I've got for right now. I'm feeling creative today. Maybe I'll turn my living room into art project central and make something cool. Yes, that's what I'll do.

Peace out, amigos. :)


  1. oh man thats going to be the new theme song to my life.

  2. I have this song on my iTunes too! Seriously...the transatlantic support group needs to happen!

  3. Dr. Jones by Aqua is the awesomest/worst song ever! Oh, Aqua.

  4. Paige - Glad you like it. It's totally my theme song too.

    Allison - Yes. Let's make it happen! We can call it The International Society for Creeps and Weirdos. Or something else. Hehe.

    k-money - :D I'm glad I'm not the only one that secretly loves Aqua. Dr. Jones is so fabulous/horrible. I think Lollipop is my favorite though. So ridiculous.

  5. I think I've heard this song before, but I have to press stop because it's too sad.

    I used to love Aqua and Ace of Base and all that crap. Wish I had that on my iPod!!

  6. Yeah, it's a song that can be too sad to handle sometimes.

    Aqua and Ace of Base, on the other hand, are made of happiness. You should really get yourself a "Bad Dance Music Of The 90's" playlist on your iPod. It will improve the quality of your life. Hehe.

  7. Oh. My. Goodness.

    I'm adding this to my 'Don't-listen-to-this-if-you're-feeling-anywhere-near-sad' playlist. It's one of those songs that can make you feel happier, more hopeful, as you say. Or, if you're a little bit moody, push you over the edge and make you cry.

    And Aqua. I agree, though I think 'My Oh My' is my favourite. One of their more...ahem...obscure tracks perhaps? I'm trying, and failing, to make my Aquappreciation sound cultured.

  8. Aw. I hope it didn't make you cry. Listen to Aqua and be happy!

    *sings* Gotta steal from the rich when they don't know I'm comin, gotta give to the poor, no time for loooovin...

    That song is fabulous. Kudos for knowing a more obscure Aqua song, you get Aquappreciation points.

    Hahaha. I didn't realize how many closet Aqua fans read my blog. It's kind of hysterical...


It makes my day when YOU leave me comments. :D
