Judging a Book

I judged a book by its cover—specifically by a phrase that appeared in the synopsis on the left flap of the front of said cover. What followed was a rumination on the act of reading a book as reconciled with the preconceived notions we bring when we open the cover—whether we’re influenced by it or not.

I take my top five songs and discuss them at length. Videos included, I should say. Please note, however, that the music video, while well done in each case, is nothing like what I describe and what the song means to me.

This one's real. I hope you enjoy.
