Today’s Theme Music – Creep

So I wasn’t planning on doing a theme music today but this song apparently won’t stop repeating in my head until I do.  There is something about Radiohead’s Creep that has universal appeal. We’ve all felt like we don’t belong at some point and wished we were special.

I know part of this earworm is triggered by marketing.  I love to write, I still like doing graphic design, I love working for myself but I can’t market worth crap. Marketing requires finding what makes you special, I don’t think I’m very special.  There are things I do in my life some people find unique or different, or more often weird but to me it’s just normal.  To me my housing situation is normal, I’ve lived it for over 10 years now.  I think it’s normal to be a black girl who loves science fiction and fantasy; who dates outside of her race; who would rather watch horror than romance; who prefers pretty much any musical genre to rap (although I’ve been listening to an embarrassing amount of Spose, I think it’s because he’s funny).  But I know what I consider normal makes me an outcast, and outsider, a creep.  In a room full of people I feel that I don’t belong there.

There is a thin line between special and strange. Unfortunately most of the time society gets to choose which side you are on.  I wish I was special.

And now the funny part…

I think this would be a great song to strip to.  About everytime I hear this song I can almost imagine it.  I picture this heavily tattooed, maybe pierced, person (gender changes each time and is of no consequence, same with their body composition), they are exquisitely beautiful in a sense that mainstream society will never get.  And they are dancing their heart out on stage. I’m not really concerned how much clothing is removed, just the physical embodiment of this song.

I think I want to see that for my birthday next year.

Anyone buying?
