So for the past three days I’ve bee singing Jonathan Coulton’ song “The Future Soon”. It’s a song about a geek kid in class that is in love with a girl. He sends her a letter to tell her that he loves her. She laughs then runs off with a “better” guy. So he daydreams (or does he) about how he re-engineers his body taking away all the “imperfections” and replaces them with cyborg parts so that he could be perfect.
He also creates a robot army and OH NOES!!! His love is caught in the midst of the battle losing her eyes, which he replaces. Does she love him in the end or is it forced love? Here’s a created video for the song.
I think I been listening to this song a lot lately because I remember I used to be that guy back in the day. I wasn’t the coolest kid…at least that’s what I’ve felt. I’m very thankful to be in a relationship where I do not feel like I have to replace my “imperfections”. I know there’s been plenty of times I told Renee that I wish I could just cut my stomach off or just fix my cowlick or something. She loves me regardless and I feel the same for her very much her.
So my words of wisdom would be wait for that one that loves you for your imperfections and perfections.
Go get it! This volume is one of the best albums I’ve heard in a looooong time…if a couple of weeks is a long time. I really love this album! India.Arie is one of my favorite artist as well. Her remake of Sade’s song “Pearls” is beautiful and soulful, so soulful that if I hadn’t listened to the lyrics I wouldn’t even have known it was a remake of a Sade soul. She made it her own song and did a good job at it. Her songs featuring other artist such as: Musiq Soulchild, MC Lyte, and Keb Mo just to name a few makes this album a definetely “go-get it!”
