Song of the Day: Hey Man (Now You’re Really Living)
Today’s song is Hey Man (Now You’re Really Living) by the Eels.
Alt-rock. Somewhat indie-pop.
Likely the greatest cure for depressed thinking (from the mid 2000’s) that exists.
Such an upbeat track.
Equally whimsical, inspirational, outlandish and catchy.
Never used to give me much of a thrill.
Really enjoy the use of the saxophone accompaniment.
The song is a celebration of life, even following sad moments.
One cannot appreciate the highest points of happiness without comparing it against the saddest times.
It’s a mix required to take both and enjoy the simple aspect of living.
A wonderful song.
