Remember the scandal when Natalie Merchant left 10,000 Maniacs?! (Was it not a scandal? It felt that way in high school, listening to Z100 on the clock radio in my bedroom . . .) And then remember when this song came out and was everywhere?!
I hadn't thought about Natalie Merchant in a long time and then I heard her riding home in a taxi the other night and was like "oh yeah! she was kind of great!"
So when I was trying to think of a Theme Song for Thanksgiving week, this popped into my head and wouldn't go away. It may be a little on-the-nose but, I gotta say, I'm really feeling it. In a year that's been profoundly challenging, in the last week of the indiegogo campaign for a project for which I have unmatched passion and excitement, it just feels really right.
