So! The world has really kicked us all collectively in the shins, hasn't it? What with its inability to be all rainbows, unicorns, and happy-good-times 24/7. And on top of that we have to somehow navigate our everyday, insignificant life-stuff while worrying about the future. Makes it hard to stay positive or live a very productive life.
How does one keep feeling their sunshine-y best and doing what's good for them when everyone is the worst, people are terrible, life gets in the way, things are unfair, and oftentimes stuff never, ever works out the way you want it to? Easy: through song and a bit of delusion!
And Garfunkel and Oates? Well, they're sort of like a duo of stringed instrument-slingin' spirit guides, bridging the gap between the absurdity of life and how we all feel. In fact, we daresay their songs are a how-to guide to life. Even if, say, some of the advice is less than ideal. So, with their songs as your guide: don't stop being cool!
