It’s surprising how song lyrics can hit you different ways at different times. I was listening to “Jessie’s Girl” by Rick Springfield over the weekend because I love 80s music and of course I was. That particular song stands out to me because I don’t recall any other song lyrics employing the phrase “the point is probably moot”. However, the lyrics to the bridge struck a particular chord with me because they so perfectly summarize the vast majority of my romantic experiences.
And I’m looking in the mirror all the time,
Wondering what she don’t see in me.
I’ve been funny, I’ve been cool with the lines.
Ain’t that the way love’s supposed to be?
Of course, the point of those experiences is also probably moot. Mr. Springfield, you know me all too well.
