Hoku and Bright Eyes

Posted by

This was my favorite TDC of the past two weeks!  TDC420 required us to write song lyrics from a song that described how we thought a day would go and then from a song that described how it went.  When I was in highschool, I was OBSESSED with song lyrics.  I constantly felt like the music I was listening to was “really speaking to me, y’know?”  I haven’t done any real lyric-searching though for about four years.

Anyway, yesterday when I woke up I had the feeling it was going to be a really good day, and by the end of it I felt totally exhausted and worn down.  For the good feeling, I chose “Perfect Day” from Hoku, which I have only ever heard during the end of Legally Blonde.  I had to look it up to remember the lyrics but I remembered it being a fun, peppy song about how everything was perfect.  I used Bright Eyes for the end of the day because I’m familiar with a lot of his music and anyone who knows anything about him knows that his music is generally super moody.  I settled on “Sunrise, Sunset.”

Here’s my post:

On this perfect day, nothing’s standing in my way
On this perfect day when nothing can go wrong
(Hoku – Perfect Day (Legally Blonde, anyone?))

Sunrise, sunset, you wake up then you undress, it always is the same.
(Bright Eyes – “Sunrise, Sunset”)
