Happy Dance!

I love music, and lots of it. I also suffer from monomania, and will happily listen to the same CD or band over and over and over and over and over and over and over until even the dog is sick of it.

When I was pregnant with Jillian, I had that excellent job with horrible people and listened to satellite radio through my computer for 9 hours every day. I finally got sick of the 80’s alternative station and turned on the what’s-new-in-alt-rock station and thus discovered Editors. It was one of those days, when I was trying not to strangle the co-workers, and “Bullets” came on. The line “if something has to change, then it always does” hit me smack in the brain and wouldn’t let go.

Since then, I have fallen so in love with this band, I can’t even tell you. I got to see them twice last year when they were on tour and I wish so much I could have just dropped my whole life and gone to every show. I love love love love this band.

A few weeks ago, they announced that they’re releasing a boxed set and whatnot, and the first 200 people to pre-order would get a line of lyrics hand-written by Tom, the singer. I am one of those lucky 200 and after a couple of email crap-outs, I got the confirmation today that they’ve received my lyrics request and I AM SO HAPPY I MIGHT JUST BARF.
