Now I’m Truly Lost
Pink Floyd: Comfortably Numb. That is all you would have to say for me to understand it. Howeverrrrrr, this is for you guys. Comfortably numb has one of the most unique sounds I have ever heard in my entire life. The extremely mellow tones and the intense guitar solo makes me feel as if I were in space. Maybe that’s why they named their album the dark side of the moon. Either way, the first time I listened to the song I fell in love I was absolutely shocked with the fluidity of the guitar but the sounds that also cut like knives. If you haven’t heard the outro guitar solo from Comfortably Numb, you haven’t lived. The song makes me want to be able to play the guitar so bad again. Not only does the music speak to me but the lyrics themselves do too. The statement “comfortably numb” reminds me of sitting in the chair ready for the next tattoo. The pain is numbing but in a sense blissful as well. Call me crazy if you want, but it is quite a nice feeling. Almost euphoric if I must say. Ironically enough I have a tattoo that resembles the Dark Side of the Moon album cover. That is the album comfortably numb is from. In my mind that’s fate. Not really but its kind of cool. I still play the air guitar like a god whenever I hear this song. Don’t judge me.
