before you came into my life
i missed you so bad
07 A song that is your guilty pleasure. Despite the fact that several years ago I decided to start embracing all my music tastes without guilt, I guess quite a few of the songs I genuinely love would be considered guilty pleasures in some circles? Here’s one of ‘em.
The inspiring public park whose conservancy I work for (which shall go unnamed because heaven forbid my employers find my tumblr somehow) just had an historic day of opening its final section, and I am exhausted from a week of too much overtime in physical & mental labor, but it looks fucking beautiful so I’m pretty damn proud and thrilled to be a part of the organization that’s making that happen. Which relates to this song because if you search the youtubes for said public park and “Call Me Maybe,” you’ll find an “office” lip sync we made a couple years ago that’s pretty great. I didn’t know this song before we did it, but once I had to learn my verse and got it stuck in my head for days, somehow it just made me fall in love with this ridiculous song instead of getting sick of it. Sometimes I think of the silly video and get nostalgic, missing some of the people in it who aren’t around anymore, and then I proceed to get this song stuck in my head for days again.
It’s happening to you now, isn’t it? You’re welcome. Cue maniacal laughter.
