help me find my proper place
I've recently joined a band whose raison d'etre is to play Velvet Underground covers, and I've had "Jesus" in my head the past couple of days, especially while running. The beat (if you can call it that) matches my stride rate almost perfectly, and since the song is verse chorus verse chorus verse ad infinitum, it's perfect to carry around even ten miles or more.
Not only is this band a Velvet Underground cover band, it's an all-girl Velvet Underground cover band. Years ago I would have looked down my nose at such a thing - whatta schtick, I'd sneer; how uncreative - but nowadays it seems like fun. I've played in a lot of bands, and the best of those were the ones in which I pretty much rode the coattails of some musical genius or other. I still know a few of those genii but some aren't playing music anymore and some don't have room for me on their coattails, and I don't have a lot of time to be creative and anyway I find more and more that musically there's nothing I really have to say. But before I quit for good, it's good to have some fun.
