Centricity Update 7/28

Posted July 28, 2011 by in Uncategorized

I was out running errands today – dropping off Downhere inserts for the band to sign and a drive to get the new High Valley photo shoot – and was listening to This American Life. The episode was titled Breakup where the reporter is looking to write the perfect breakup song. She ends up talking to Phil Collins about it. And guess what song I have had rumbling through my head all day? “Against All Odds”. Curse you This American Life.
I could never let you walk away, let you let without a trace, before letting you have a second chance to see our videos…
