Wichita Lineman

Apparently this song is a thing, and it never occurred to me. Although, when it came on the radio, the speaker announced this song, and described it as possibly the ‘greatest pop song ever’, and the first existential song. And Glen Campbell, Mr Rhinestone Cowboy sings it? Ugh. Where have I been? Ben said that he loved this song growing up. I’m feeling very out of the loop. But I get it almost immediately, it is instantly captivating and melancholic. A little sad, and a little cheesy, so it suits my temperament completely. This song seems to capture the image of light dimming into dusk, when everything is a golden yellow, and you’ve never felt more lonely in your life. And I wanted to share it with you.
