Get Behind Me, 2002 Brain-Leavings by Paul - May 4, 20161 How well do you remember the teenage wasteland? There have been a few times in my life when I’ve been sailing along, dipping my oar on either side of my life-raft, stroke for stroke, moving along fine. Distracted by some distant fog horn somewhere at my back, I run straight into an iceberg that pulls me out and reminds me of 10,000 feelings I’d long ago let sink. One such recent cache of novelty came in the form of one particular block of random songs on one particular Apple Music radio station click here for info. Some of these songs I hadn’t heard for so long, it was like listening to them for the first time, but they carried on-board memories, the real greatest hits. The mass below the iceberg though, is that these all came out in one year: 2002. The year I washed up on the beach of adulthood, my torso baked by the sun, below the waist – drenched in the tide. I went for a walk on the beach, and didn’t roll my pant legs up high enough. Half wet, half-dry is fun, but uncomfortable. Until I can get back on the board walk and dry out again.
