Deftones- The Passenger (ft. Maynard James Keenan)
Even the opening to this gives me chills. This is my favorite song of all time, and I wanted to save it for last. Something is almost forcing me to post it now. After the week I have had, full of bad news and emotional chaos, I feel it's time to post the crem`e de la crem`e of Deftones songs (my opinion only).
*WARNING* Mini-rant ahead- proceed with great caution!!!
Sometimes you have to depend on
music/art/literature just to make it through the day, and this gets me there. Chino's voice somehow makes me re-evaluate things in my life, which at this point seems to be undergoing constant construction. I am not a fan of change in general. I will find comfort in things that hurt me, make me feel insecure, or are just bad for me all around; however, now is the time for me to stop feeling sorry for myself and be an adult. I'm going to finally give up the desire to be happy and just settle for being alive. Hapiness is an chemical imbalance anyway, right? Indifference is a truely beautiful thing for most people, and the proof is how we all distance ourselves from one another when the going gets tough. I have someone's back no matter what...I wish I could say the same for everyone else. I am always dependent on what someone else wants/needs/feels...just like their passenger, but now I wanna drive msyelf for a change.
*End of Rant*
I'm not sure when this Wednesday post will ever return to Way Back Wednesday in the usual sense, but I do know I have an almost endless supply of tracks to use for Deftones' Wednesday posts...you are in for a weekly treat for as long as I feel like posting them.
