I don't know how to say this?
It's not like I WANT to admit it.
But (deep breath),
Here goes nothing....
I think Chad Kroeger and I are having the exact same kind of existential mid-life crisis/happening/occurrence type thingy.
Please don't hate me.
Although, for the record, I don't really get the intense hate-on that people have for Chad and Nickelback. Is my musical palate that bad? Nickelback does have some catchy tunes and lately, I am diggin' the lyrics they have been writing. I mean, I know that they are not particularly complex lyrics, but they are speaking to me and moving me, and is that not what music is supposed to do?
A few months ago, I wrote about the first single released from their new album and how I TOO felt as if the world was standing on the "Edge of a Revolution". And I still feel that way and I see it starting to happen in small ways all around me. People everywhere are feeling it too.
Nickelback has just released the follow up single from their No Fixed Address album and again, I find myself saying YES! (and then singing along - alone, in the car, so no one pelts me with tomatoes or snowballs).
The release date of this song was probably not a coincidence. It's the beginning of a new year. The time to commit to doing all those things that we say we are going to do and then we don't because the timing isn't right, the planets aren't aligned properly, or whatever excuse is most convincing at the moment.
So... What are you waiting for?
Chad and I need to know!
No really, we do.
What are you going to do this year that you've been putting off and/or waiting for the "perfect" timing?
