The Playlist- 4 The D.J.’s (Interlude)

The Playlist is a new feature I’m trying out on the blog that’ll allow me to write a lot more frequently about music, which is something I’m always promising myself I’ll get around to doing. The shorter postings (for me, anyway) are going to focus on specific pieces of music that have some kind of personal hold on me for reasons I feel strangely compelled to reveal publicly.

Don’t know why, but hearing this just made me think of things—rooftop chases, running in the rain, people with guns, etc. Spent a couple years in high school writing about teenage spies and superheroes, and this track was blasting on repeat out of my father’s top of the line (at the time) stereo for a ton of it…
