Last night I was at a show, at da club, and encountered an acquaintance who has worked there for years - more a "friend of a friend," but someone I've seen around for ages. She recently ended a very bad relationship that had dragged on for years and was zapping her life in multiple ways. She told me that she'd briefly quit the club, gathered up her strength/energy and booted the Bad Man to the curb. Without going into all her shit, it was not easy on any level, but she is very happy now and feels really free and renewed.
Don't you love these stories? I was very impressed / happy for her. I was thinking later about this and remembered a song from the 90's that captures what she was telling me last night on the street. It's a Britpop corker...
McAlmont and Butler Yes
Could these two have been any cooler? David McAlmont has one of the best voices of anyone, anywhere. I adore him. And note how Bernard Butler's leg is flying up behind him at the start...
Yes I do feel better
Yes, I do, I feel alright
I feel well enough
To tell you what you can do
With what you have to offer
I sent my acquaintance this video today. She will not likely see this post, but it's for her and anyone else who has had to take that hard step to change their life.
