Breakup Song

Post by Rish Outfield » Fri Jan 21, 2011 7:49 am

Cheyenne is about to break up with me, in the middle of karaoke night.

"The thing is," she says, "I've felt this way for weeks. I just never had the guts to say it."

My throat is suddenly very tight, very dry. "But you do now."

"Yeah. When I look at yo–"

And then, the DJ calls my name. My turn in front of the microphone.

"Go on," says Cheyenne. "We'll finish this after you're done."

Then we'll both be done, I think, and stand up. The DJ asks me to pick my song.

"In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida," I say. "The extended version."

I bet that one would be really good just after a break up because you could cry and mumble and keep up with the song fairly well. It is the same way i played rock band and got 99% every time i just hummed it and got through without knowing the words to the song. Nice drabble also.

My aunt used to run her college radio station on the graveyard shift. Every morning at 6 a.m., when everyone's alarm clocks were going off, she'd pump up the output volume and turn on Inna Gadda Da Vida. She likes to tell the story of one morning when a call came in at 6:05 and a voice on the other line said, "I'm up! I'm up, okay!?"
