Halle and Lena are about to bring ‘Boomerang’ back, which was an amazing soundtrack, and thus, today’s video (which is an amazing song.)
My personal connection to this song runs pretty deep. More than enough time has passed, but I can’t hear this without thinking of the most devastating breakup of my life. Shorty had me crumpled up in a laundry basket, ashy as hell, singing along to this when it came on the radio. That’s 100 percent true. Oh, to be young, and think you’ve blown it with your one true love!
A few people who guided me through that experience may also remember this: my adopting ‘Batman’ as my alter ego didn’t start with childhood comic books or Christopher Nolan, but the immediate aftermath of that breakup. Went to work everyday, but would come home, wouldn’t turn on the lights, wouldn’t eat, wouldn’t turn on the television. Just sit in the dark for hours until my body decided to go to sleep. That’s also 100 percent true.
I wasn’t always inspirational quotes on the Gram, my friends. I’ve had my fair share of depression where you’re not even functioning as a human being really.
Anyway, happy thoughts. Cause again, this is a beautiful song.
