Long Way Down

Choosing Robert Delong’s Long Way Down to listen to during takeoff may not have been the most appropriate of choices. But as my plane lifted off the ground on my way to vacation a few weeks ago, the song’s irresistible lurching beat seeped into my heart.

Although the song is a touch dark, tending toward realism over optimism, the opening line is pure gold: I’ve been fucking around while you’ve been saving the world. I’m going to repeat that to myself in the song’s mocking tone anytime someone says what I do is not important (and that what they do is).
