“Where You Want to Be” is 10 Years Old, Mortality is Inevitable
Were you an awkward teenager in the early 2000s? No? Then you might wanna ignore this one and move on.
For those of you that grew up wanting scene haircuts and nautical star tattoos, I’ve got some bittersweet news: Where You Want to Be, Taking Back Sunday’s second-best album, turned 10 yesterday.
Ten years. That seems impossible, but then I remember that “This Photograph is Proof (I Know you Know)”, the album’s second single, was included on the Spider-man 2 soundtrack. That would be just Spider-Man 2, not the Amazing Spider-Man 2.
What were you doing 10 years ago? Were you confused yet excited by all of the new experiences and promises of the future? Did you become an adult without realizing it? Shouldn’t I have accomplished so much more by now? What is my high school girlfriend up to? She’s probably married and has a kid.
Lo, my youth has faded like the lettering on a Von Dutch hat.
Anyway, I wanted to post the video for my favorite track “A Decade Under the Influence” but their a-hole record label has blocked it from YouTube. Instead, I’m just gonna place the Spotify player here and go think about things for a while.
