It’s not unusual for a song to take up residence in my head without paying rent. My brain has always been hard-wired for music since I was too young to know the difference between a treble clef and bass clef. #musicianamateurhour
All of that said, today’s invading song was “Day After Day” by the Welsh 1970s band Badfinger. Cursory Internet sleuthing tells me this band was boosted up by none other than The Beatles, and George Harrison himself helped produce this track and even played slide guitar on it.
Here’s where it gets weird…and haunting. Lead singer Pete Ham wound up taking his own life, as did another band member later (last name Evans). Both were worried about financial ruin.
Wow, just wow, Badfinger! I’ll always remember “finding out about you” as your song lyrics say! Sorry you felt the need to cut things short…but did you know the grunge band Soundgarden named one of their albums “Badmotorfinger,” presumably in your honor?
But wait…now I’m remembering how Soundgarden singer Chris Cornell died 😢
This HAS to be a sign from the universe…I’m just too tired to figure out what it means now.
Time for bed! 😪
