120 Minutes had the Breeder's Cannonball video on tonight, which I'd never seen. The plucked out guitar bit sounded just like sitting on the beach near my house at 6 AM, wrapped up in a hooded sweatshirt with a walkman tucked into the big handwarmer pocket. That was my favorite place to go- I wouldn't even go out in the water in a canoe most of the time- just sitting and watching the tiny little waves lap against the sand was enough of an escape most mornings. I don''t know that I ever listened to Cannonball sitting there, but the gray sky and beach are in my head whenever I hear it.
