RE: One Song that Defines Your Life
An here I go again on my own
Goin' down the only road I've ever known,
Like a drifter I was born to walk alone
An' I've made up my mind
I ain't wasting no more time



Bruising cervix since 96

RE: One Song that Defines Your Life
This song, on the surface, is about a guy who falls off his bike and has trouble getting medical treatment in an ill-equipped hospital in the Dominican Republic. The title and chorus is a play on a Dominican idiom, literally meaning "it's difficult to get through Niagara Falls on a bicycle." Of course, it's a metaphor for overcoming difficult situations, especially when you're not prepared enough to do so.

But it reaches me on many levels.

1. I heard it often as a kid, it was a popular song. I distinctly remember it playing in my grandfather's cab going home from elementary school, as I ate McDonald's chicken nuggets in the back seat.
2. The 'heavy' lyrics combined with the happy, danceable music is an interesting contrast. It shows how people, especially from tropical environments, can simultaneously be supremely frustrated, yet just not give a fuck and be happy. It encapsulates us, and our situations, well.
3. You know how you get 3 great women in life? For one of mine, this guy is her favorite artist.
4. It's the fucking story of my life. Always behind, trying to find the tools to get me over those goddamn falls.

I'll take "My Way" by Frank Sinatra.

I find it to be a very red pill description of life. Not perfect, but it's yours and you own it.

“….and we will win, and you will win, and we will keep on winning, and eventually you will say… we can’t take all of this winning, …please Mr. Trump …and I will say, NO, we will win, and we will keep on winning”.

1. Songs about not giving a fuck or just being a badass
2. Songs about people who are never quite satisfied and always searching for something better.
3. Songs about rambling around from city to city, country to country, ect...

Yeah, pretty much.

Heard this one randomly while riding in a taxi in Rio de Janeiro.

It snapped me to attention and made me ask the question: "is that me?"

Or forget the lyrics and just listen to it for the typical 1980s saxophone solo at 3:03.

I have a slight dramatic streak, but something about metal music always called to me. These songs may not be metal, but the bands are as metal as it gets, in my eyes.

I will be checking my PMs weekly, so you can catch me there. I will not be posting.

There are few to choose from, but when talking RVF stuff unfortunately it's this one:





Bash

"Wynik jest jawnie niedemokratyczny. Wiadomo że demokratyczny wynik jest tylko wtedy, gdy popiera lewacką utopię. Każdy inny wynik to faszyzm i nazim. Rasizm i ksenofobia. I jeszcze homofobia i zacofanie. Oraz antysemityzm"

"Posting half naked pics on ig is empowering. When men view those pics, it's degrading."
