people thought my windows were stars

It was the kind of day at work where I needed comfort, and in between all my fretting I only found time to queue a couple of tracks up. The Beach Boy's Sloop John B firmly lodged itself in my head all afternoon. This probably wasn't the worst trip I've ever been on, but yeah, I still wanted to go home.

Comfort, though, for when you really just want to withdraw into yourself, can be reserved for bands like Smog and, in particular, songs like Teenage Spaceship. Simple, quiet, memories. So while Sloop John B kept the loop-playing parts of my brain occupied, it was Teenage Spaceship that gave me a little bit of strength...just enough to keep me going.
