Memoirs of a Gaijin Playlist

“Almost” by Bowling For Soup

In yet another reflection of my own inability to act mature enough for my age, this week’s song was another key piece in my adolescent music library. “Almost” is a song that I have always enjoyed, originally for the catchy instrumentals and lyrics of it, but as I have aged I have become appreciative of the lyricism of the song.

The idea of love lost is not unique to this song, but I really enjoy the way that the theme is examined in the song. Every one of us wonders about the almosts, maybes, and could-have-beens, and this song stands as an anthem to those insecurities. And for that reason, most of all, I love it.
