Losing

  • It is one thing
  • To lose.
  • It is another thing
  • To be lost.
  • It is something
  • Entirely devastating
  • To be forgotten.

Radiohead – All I Need

There is so much to love about this; not just the song (of course) but the whole experience. When I watch and listen to this, I am simultaneously transported to five different places in my mind. Me—and the parallel Me’s—we join up at the end, exhausted, yet wanting the song to continue forever.

The real “moment” here, where I connect, is with Colin Greenwood at about 3:23 when he drops into that low E on the bass.

A bulleted list.

  • Breathe
  • Stare into the middle distance
  • Close your eyes and sigh
  • Open your eyes and sigh
  • What is the world coming to
  • An end
  • Will the soil and the shores burn
  • The fascists are coming
  • They’re here
  • Did they open the camps
  • Got the neighbors down the street
  • Don’t forget the milk
  • And the bread
  • And the children
  • Dinner plans
  • Breathe
