Indigo Girls: The MEHs

27 Feb

You know when you’re listening to your playlist and you just kinda tune out?  And like 10 min later you’re like, what songs just played, I don’t even know.  The funny thing is that it’s not an anomaly (usually, unless you had to focus hard on work, or actually got distracted doing something) these songs are just meh.  Even in trying to re-listen several times to rank these, my mind would wander.  I listened to this set the very most bc of tuning out.  You know what you don’t like pretty readily, you know what you love, and even the songs that aren’t quite love, but really good.  But the neutral to meh are the most difficult to decipher.  So here are the below neutral/OK and above skip songs:

Meh (in order)

-Strange Fire (1200):  C, I, L, P

-Come On Home (AtWLI):  C, L

It’s a nice little song, and fits perfectly with the vibe of the All That We Let In album.  But as a stand alone song–It’s just meh.

-Dead Man’s Hill (1200):  N, P

-Able to Sing (BQS):  C, N

-Mystery (LwtUoCSO): I, N

-Neuvose Senorita (BY):  L, P

-Cordova (AtWLI):  C, L, N, P

I like the Latin-X (is this the proper term now?) flair in these two, but I guess I’d like a little more going on.  Maybe live, or with the orchestra or something would be better.

-Mistletoe (HHD):  C, L

-John (BQS):  L, N, P

I like the sentiment, and it tells a detailed story, but *yawn*

-Peace Child (HHD):  C, L, N

-There’s Still My Joy (HHD):  L, N

-Cedar Tree (RoP):  I, N, U (bag pipe sounding)

-Power of Two (LwtUoCSO):  I, L, N

-Power of Two (1200):  L, N

I know, this is a travesty–this is a fan-favorite.  But yup, I think it’s over-rated.  I just can’t get into it.

-Andy (CoNS):  L, N

-When We Were Writers (LL):  N

P.S. Spotify ranked this my very top listened to song in 2020.  Which is…  I just tuned out EVERY damn time I tried to rank it.  This song is pretty much the ultimate definition of meh.

-Mystery (1200):  L, N
