Lyricspam to keep on going by... *G*
Just watching VH1 Classic, which is pretty cool, because you can't actually SEE videos on MTV or VH1 anymore, it seems. Course, these are mostly old, but that makes them all the more fun. *G*

Anyway, saw a video of a song that was my theme song during graduate school. Grad school was very tough for me, and sometimes I couldn't see the light at the end of the tunnel and would lose faith. When I did, this song always got me through. It's much more effective with the music, which has a great riff.

By the way, if you don't know what a rumble seat is, it was something you saw in the very old classic cars, like the Duesenbergs. I remember my brother had a little metal car model that had a rumble seat. It was where the trunk would be - you swunt it open and - voila! - a little seat in the far back of the car. Obviously not the most comfortable seat... just an afterthought. *S*

Rumble Seat (by John Mellencamp)

All the leaves are green
All my friends are gone
I'm livin' in my hometown
I can barely get along
I feel sorry for myself
That's an easy thing to do
I feel sorry for the world
I feel sorry for you
Yes I am a pitiful sight
I can't even get one thing right

I know just what it's like
To be ridin' in the rumbleseat
Yes I know just what it's like
To be a big time rider in the rumbleseat

Well I could have a nervous breakdown
But I don't believe in shrinks
I should be drunker than a monkey
But I don't like to drink
Call up some girls
But I'm afraid of the phone
I'm always talkin' to myself
I guess I'm never alone
Am I the only one that feels this way
I'd buy myself some stylish clothes
But I sure hate to pay


The sun is coming up
Just goin' to bed
I combed my hair with my pillow
Still got some dreams left
Tomorrow is a new day
Gonna make these dreams come true
I'm gonna believe in myself
I'll tell you what I'm gonna do
I'm gonna stop puttin' myself down
I'm gonna turn my life around

I'll be ridin' high
With my feet kicked up in the rumbleseat
Yeah we'll go for a drive
And we'll be singin' shotgun from that rumbleseat
Yes I'll blow you a kiss
And we'll be ridin' big time in my rumbleseat
