Sometimes I feel like it’s all too much. Like the weight of the world is pressing down on me and refusing to let up. Like I’ll never catch up or really get ahead.

Then something as simple as a song can make me feel worlds better.


Pet Shop Boys,
I Wouldn’t Normally Do This Kind Of Thing
(lyrics by Robbie Williams)

Ask me why,
I say it’s most unusual
How can I even try to explain
Why today I feel like dancing
Singing like lovers sing
When I wouldn’t normally do this kind of thing?
I wouldn’t normally do this kind of thing

Ask me when, (ta ra ra ra)
I say it started when I met you (ta ra ra ra ra ra)
And ever since then I knew that the past couldn’t last
For right now, I think I’m running
A race that I know I’m gonna win
And I wouldn’t normally do this kind of thing
I wouldn’t normally do this kind of thing

If people say I’m crazy, I tell ’em that it’s true
Let them watch with amazement
Say it won’t last beyond breakfast
It’s a phase he’s going through
Denigrate or speculate on what I’m going through
Because it isn’t the sort of thing I would normally do

Ask me what, (ta ra ra ra)
I say I think it’s good for you (ta ra ra ra ra)
Believe it or not, I know where it’s all leading to
I feel like taking all my clothes off
Dancing to the Rite of Spring
And I wouldn’t normally do this kind of thing
I wouldn’t normally do this kind of thing
I wouldn’t normally do this kind of –
This kind of thing
