You know that homesick feeling you get sometimes?
Not the normal one, simply wishing you were back home, but the other one. The one that has you pining for a place you’re not entirely sure you’ve ever been to, or whether it even exists. A yearning so strong that you get a little choked up and teary when you feel it.
That’s what this song makes me feel. It anchors me in the present, yet I feel like I’m floating through someone else’s distant dream.
My first time hearing this track came when I was watching Twin Peaks: The Return; this song closed out the two-part opener of the season. It was the perfect choice to cap off a strange but wonderful two episodes of television. It’s also the perfect choice for listening to when you’re driving along a highway at midnight on a moonless night, with your way forward lit only by the headlights of your black Cadillac and the stars in the sky.
Come on, give it a listen. Sway with me.
Let’s go back to a place we’ve never been.
