Or at least the song I want to listen to on the way. It’s no secret that I am a major Foo Fighters and They Might Be Giants fan, or that I have a soft spot for old boy bands. But if you were to ask me my favorite song, I will always, hands-down answer “Closing Time” by Semisonic.
I can’t really explain why I love this song so much. For some reason, I fell in love with this song the first time I heard it as an eight-year-old.The video probably helped. It’s one that has always stuck in my head. The split screen style and way they both kept moving back and forth between the two places on the two sides of the screen, just barely missing each other, has always been so cool to me. Also, VH1 is how I found a lot of my favorite music in the 90s.
No matter what kind of music I’ve been into over the years, I’ve always loved this song. So much that it’s one I’ve fantasized about covering onstage some day. If the opportunity ever arose, that is.
What is your favorite song of all time? What song would you love to have the opportunity to perform?
