I’m a big fan of Boyce Avenue (even though they ignored the 1000 or so requests Matt and I made for them to cover ‘Country Roads’). There’s something about the simplicity of their songs that makes them that much better than any other cover artists. Their cover of ‘Story of my Life’ is no different. A piano, guitar, tambourine and two sweet, angelic voices. Gets me every time.
Ever since One Direction were the musical guests on SNL I think they’ve been stalking me. At first I didn’t mind because “story of my life” is a pretty good song. It’s actually better than most of the stuff on the radio right now. As much as I love listening to the same song on repeat, ‘story of my life’ is starting to haunt my dreams. I hear it before work, on lunch, after work, the weekends. I put on a random Pandora station and it pops up out of the goddamn blue. What I long feared to be true is actually happening: One Direction is stealing my soul and I’m powerless to stop them. That’s the story of my life.
Just when I thought twitter might be getting a bit stale with its content, they go and do something like this! The “Hill Valley Project” is public twitter list that is currently reenacting the Back To The Future film. Here are a few sample twitter accounts/tweets involved in the action.
