Breaking up is hard to do

I've written and thought a lot about music thanks to the Americana festival the past couple of days so being a few days behind is not a sin.


Day 20: Your favorite breakup song.

Again, I go to Bruce. Songs about breaking up are usually sad or angry. This one is sad but hopeful, the singer knowing that the decision is the right one. He's just sorry he didn't get to say goodbye.

"Bobby Jean" captures youth, impetuousness, nostalgia, sadness, hope, betrayal, friendship, and love. That's an awful lot in 4 minutes.



[T]here ain't nobody nowhere no how gonna ever understand me the way you did . . .

In some motel room, there'll be a radio playing
And you'll hear me sing this song
Well if you do you'll know I'm thinking of you and all the miles in between
And I'm just calling one last time not to change your mind
But just to say I miss you baby, good luck goodbye, Bobby Jean
