Luke LaLonde of Born Ruffians, “I’m On Fire” (Bruce Springsteen cover)
I moved today. Or I am moving.
Right now I’m drinking in an airport in Boston and Boston has the best airports because there is free wifi. Aaanyhow I realized I hadn’t posted an obligatory “I just moved” song to my tumblr and while I have, over the years, had many songs I assumed I’d care about whenever I moved wherever it ended up being this one that has been stuck in my head.
Best song about pool parties is this sad song by Born Ruffians.
It’s really just Luke Lalonde with a guitar singing and whistling and breaking your heart. But it sounds like summer. The empty parts of it that you forget about. Not the parts that feel like “Night Moves” by Bob Segar. Can you believe it took me until last week to “Night Moves” for the first time all year? What the fuck is the matter with me? What the fuck is the matter with this summer?
But I have to go swim in a pool later. I’ve never been drunk in a pool before. I don’t know how to swim.
