Welcome to Bossy’s Ear Worm, which features songs currently in Bossy’s headphones. Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.
Modest Mouse, Gravity Rides Everything.
Ever have one of those nights that begins very early and goes very late and during the between hours you eat and drink and eat again and play board games and laugh and shovel chocolate cake through your smeared lipstick and sing 80s songs into a Rock Band microphone and fall backwards on the sofa sectional in order to sit this one out and watch as everyone around you does similar, ad infinitum, well into the night?
Bossy attended one of those parties last weekend, and this song, from Modest Mouse’s 2000 record The Moon & Antarctica, arrived at the tipsy end of everything, and its foggy nothingness seemed to explain and encapsulate it all.
