#songoftheday = Ezra Furman – “Ordinary Life”

“I’m sick of this record already,” begins “Ordinary Life,” a song roughly halfway through the album that is about, well, being sick of ordinary life. While he sings about losing the will to live in Boston, floating and waiting to die, the song isn’t intended to inspire suicides. Quite the opposite in fact, “Just because you’re sick of your ordinary life / Doesn’t mean you should bottle up and die,” he sings after recounting the history of his own depression. He’s stated that the song is inspired by transgender American author, playwright, performance artist and gender theorist Kate Bornstein, whom he quotes as saying, “Do anything you have to do to make your life worth living, break the law, run away from home, destroy your possessions; just don’t be mean to people.” -text from our review of Ezra’s album Perpetual Motion People
