I’ve been making more of an effort to write about music and recently accepted a challenge to post an 80s song a day on Facebook. This post (which I’m posting a day late, but which was actually written on the 23rd) comes from that effort.
I was listening to this track with The Boy today. He asked, “What’s this song about?”
I replied, “Well, I’m not sure. He sings about waiting for a call, and about choices, and says he’s sorry. But he lets us make up our own minds about what the song is about.”
The Boy said firmly, “It’s about Sorry.”
I said, “Yes, it’s about Sorry.”
And then we talked about apologies, and what it means to accept an apology.
Thanks for that, Michael Stipe.
