Some songs just stick with you. I can place the very first time I heard this one.
I was sitting in the passenger seat of a rental car, my father driving us through Massachusetts on our way to see relatives. I was well versed in Don Henley’s version of this song, but something about hearing the cover just stuck with me.
It was one of the first summers I took a trip away from my girlfriend of that time. As an early birthday present, my parents bought me a calling card so that I could talk to her while we were away. I was about 16 years old and just about in high school. The air in west Mass was amazingly crisp and cool that summer. The windows in our car were down the entire drive. The wind whipping at my face the whole drive.
This song is literally a part of who I am. It’s the embodiment of my careless youth, and everything I will always miss about being young.
One of the saddest and most hil- NO BITCH, the sad thing here is the fact that you're a stripper. If you want respect, maybe you should've graduated high school. 😂😂 when did stripping become a legitimate career?
Awww, you tried so hard, but unfortunately I can’t hear you over the sound of my debt-free college degree and massive disposable income.
