When we were strangers, I watched you from affar…”
Neil Young’s Harvest Moon is just one those incredibly beautiful songs that captures the absolute essence of love. We get older, we go through some good relationships and some not so great. When things go bad many of us develop a guard and walk around with insecurities that limit and affect the way we experience love in the future. But here’s a little secret, you get what you put in and if you meet someone new and you’re always worried about what happened in your past relationship then you’re going to create the same results. This song always reminds me to press the restart button if something didn’t work out. Of course it’s easier said then done but you can’t go around feeling nothing short of amazing in this life and if thinking about what happen in the past is going to prevent that then you gotta work hard to move on. Anyways, Of Montreal did an acoustic cover of this song back in ’07 and I thought it was great. Poolside version bought it to the Space Age with an elegance and beauty that is truly noteworthy. This will be on heavy rotation for the rest of the day, enjoy.
