chomiji: Sai, the courtly, go-playing Heian ghost, playing a flute - from Hikaru no Go (Sai - music)
[personal profile] chomiji

Middle school was rough, as it often is. My friends always seemed to disappear (they didn't stop being friends, but one was only in the area because of her father's temporary assignment, another went off to private high school in 9th grade for religious reasons, and so on), and things were getting rough at home, too. Although I would not realize it for several years yet, my mother's mental illness was becoming a factor.

Still, at home, I could mostly be my geeky self. I listened to a lot of Simon & Garfunkel at that point, and this song sums up my feelings about home (minus the romance subtheme, which didn't really exist for me yet):

In a more cheery mood, I also liked Seals & Crofts and was starting to get into Elton John.

This is also one of the songs that I categorize as "the life of musicians on the road," along with (much later) Bob Seger's "Turn the Page" and Jackson Brown's "The Load Out." I still like that kind of theme.

Today, my favorite S&G from this period is "Kathy's Song."
