I clearly don’t understand why a song starts to play on my computer. You could assume that if you’ve gotten to a place in life where Bob Seger starts to sing on your computer but you have no idea why, then you’ve come close to heaven for many reasons.
Not to overlook the obvious, but the first is really how old are you if you know Bob Seger and your not sure why he’s playing on your computer? I wanna say, closer to going to heaven (or somewhere else) in the foreseeable future than, your younger music listeners of the now?
The most pertinent reason you’re closer to heaven I think, is that you know Bob Seger. You’ve had the blessed experience of listening to his songs as you mature. I didn’t appreciate Bob Seger when I was younger, as i do now. He (as they say) “speaks” to me. With his weathered voice and philosophical outlook.
Here is where I stop to listen as Bob Seger plays on my vector to musical heaven, the computer.
- BTW: Full disclosure for you Creative-Rights type Lawyers, I did buy the album somewhere down my long-life, road. I believe that is why it followed me to my computer and randomly started playing, putting me closer to heaven.
In Roll Me Away, Seger reflects on the past in which he’s rolling deep into to mountains, feeling free and feeling good – go east, go west it’s all up to him to decide.
I’ve done that! He’s right, it feels good. When I listened to this song for the first time, I hadn’t done that before. I had never taken off and gone my own way. Bob Seger, wether its his gravel voice or his melancholy tone, brings it all back to me.
Thanks Computer, for randomly playing Bob Seger’s – Greatest Hits, seating me on top of the world.
Thanks Bob Seger for you, and to Me having done that.
