does music matter?

last night, me & gaby took our teen nieces (13, 17 & 19; all sisters) to see radiohead. when the band came on stage, gaby nudged me and signaled the 13 year old; she was clenching her fists against her mouth and shaking with a complete lack of self-awareness. it made me wish i could still care one tenth as much, so the rest of the night i tried to convince myself that once i did care as much.

can’t think of a better follow up than:

Listen: At SXSW, Bruce Springsteen On The Meaning Of Music : The Record : NPR.
