While biking last weekend, the subject of the song “Don’t Stop Believin'” came up.

That was all it took for me to buy it on iTunes. I also picked up “The Final Countdown” to make me feel like I’m in an episode of Arrested Development while coding.*

While typing the below footnotes I completely forgot where I was going with this setup – but for some reason I wanted everyone to know I bought the track “Don’t Stop Believin'” from iTunes.

I remember now. Every time I listen to “Don’t Stop Believin'” I get this horrible fear, and I realized, it’s because of the Sopranos series finale. I keep expecting the music to cut out and either to pass out and everything go black, or to actually die because of the song.

That’s somewhat impressive – that they’ve created such a strong link between this song, and that scene. It was a pretty good scene.

* – By the way, fair reader, it is my New Year’s Resolution** to take up one or several of the following: coin tricks, card tricks, juggling. If I learn either of the first two, this song will be played whenever I do a trick. I will need to carry around an iPod and speakers.

** – The way I see it, New Year’s in January is complete BS. The “new year” for you starts after your birthday, which for me, is this month. So I’m creating some New Year’s in October, the month of my birth. This isn’t actually true, nor was it my initial motivation, but I thought of it while typing this so I’m going with it.

    see, whenever i hear that song i think of the 2005 white sox, who towards the end of the year adopted it as their theme after a few of them performed it at some karaoke bar while travelling on a road trip. then they basically adopted steve perry as their mascot and made him show up at all their playoff games and wear white sox gear. it was all quite odd

    I generally assume anyone on my blog who knows anything about baseball (especially the White Sox) is you Shane. I mean, I guess it could also be Nick, but I’m not entirely convinced he’s still alive.
