I hadn’t listened to The Gaslight Anthem in aaaaages until a friend said she was listening to them and thought of me. So I thought I’d give them a go again since I’ve been listening to the same playlist for about 4 months now.
Does anyone get a tad bit depressed listening to them? I love the band, I’ve seen them live but they always give me a longing feeling for something I’ve never even had. I don’t know, they make me want to go to the 70s and live in a suburb of New Jersey wearing a baseball tee and playing basketball in the garage (yeah, it’s a scene in Now & Then, just swap New Jersey for Indiana. It’s probably got something to do with the fact the girls live in a development called Gaslightsomething, but I usually leave this detail out of the story because it takes the “romanticism” out of it).
