"A Connection Is Made"

Video link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HtAwWQzJlUw

A connection has been made and recently I've thought of this song. It's hard to believe it's a dozen years old. Where were you in 1994? In late 1994, I was getting ready to move from Eugene, Oregon to Irvine, CA. {I guess I should say Irvine, California, since there's an Irvine, Alberta, but that's a snowy August story for another blog} I loved this video...I had a crush on Justine Frishmann {that sneer!} and was really getting into Britpop. The lo-fi sound, infectious hooks, and shortness were perfect for my increasingly ADD-mind. Speaking of connections, I also liked Blur:: Girls who are boys Who like boys to be girls Who do boys like theyre girls Who do girls like they're boys Always should be someone you really love.


Riding on any wave
There is the luck you crave
They don't believe it now,
They just think it's stupid
So got anything ?
Anyone could have done
Who would've cared at all, not you

Another heart has made the trade
Forget it, forget it, forget it
I don't understand how a heart is a spade
But somehow the vital connection is made

Riding on anything
Anything's good enough
Who would've thought it up someone like you
Just as they brought me round
Now that they brought you down
Roundabout and roundabout
Who wants a life anyway?

Another heart has made the grade
Forget it, forget it, forget it
I don't understand how the last card is played
But somehow the vital connection is made
