Rosie Thomas once wrote a song called “Bicycle Tricycle,” which could probably be used as a universal definition to describe the feeling of nostalgia. Other songs in her catalog, like “Farewell” and “Death Came and Got Me,” are for sure some of the saddest songs ever written. (I should note, however, that when I interviewed Thomas a few years ago, she seemed to be one of the happiest persons on the planet.)
Today’s PJOTD, “Sometimes Love,” is beautiful because, in just over four minutes, Thomas pretty much sums up the complexity and seemingly undefinable feeling that is love. And you should know by now — I’m a sucker for songs like that.
