We Could Live Beside the Ocean…

Today’s 25/25 music is a song that calms me down.

When I was in college, I was a hot mess. Some things never change, I guess…but my best friend on the planet knew just what to do when I was freaking out. Katie and I would have girly dance parties, singing into hair brushes and dancing on desk chairs.

When Lisa Loeb and Liz Phair didn’t cut it, though…Katie brought out the big guns. She brought out the Everclear.

Somehow, there was nothing in this world back in those college days that could make me relax more than watching Katie (and eventually joining in) with her choreographed dance to 
Santa Monica.

It was one of those dances where you act out the actions of the lyrics, so OBVIOUSLY it was awesome. Maybe one day I’ll convince her to YouTube it… Until then, you can watch the normal video and imagine the moves.

Blog friends, is there a tune that calms your crazy?

  1. Great song!!

  2. Not familiar with the song. The guitar and singing sounds ok. However, I have a problem with the guys. Too many of ones like them around here on the West Coast as it is. I think I’d prefer Elvis Costello singing “What’s So Funny About Peace, Love, and Understanding” or perhaps “Ramblin’ Fever” by Merle Haggard.

  3. I’m not sure that my interpretive dance ever needs to be recorded. But I’m glad you loved it. XOXO

Speak to me. Tell me awesome things. Tell me secrets. Tell me lies.
