Song: Shot in the Dark (2021)
Artist: John Mayer
Album: Sob Rock
I might have to start giving my internal clock a little more credit. I woke up naturally a solid seven minutes before my 11:30 AM alarm went off. Within my first 20 seconds of consciousness, I was like, "I gotta get this Carl blog out before I hit the roads," BUT, I have to follow the format precedent I've set the last few months (and like first two years of DOL) with a Song of the Day to pump the numbers; although, I think we all can admit they've evolved into legit blogs with more than just a video and title.
John Mayer's long-awaited Sob Rock came out last Friday, so I figured something from that might actually be click-worthy for all those "link in bio" IG stories that people can't swipe up on since I'm about 9,890 followers short. Aka I independently decided to use a John Mayer song today. Then while checking FB and snap memories, as I do every morning to see what cancelable mischief I was getting into x years ago, there it was; two years ago tonight I saw John Mayer at the Dunk in the Nat Grid box; thanks to free tickets my daddy didn't want. Woah. Way to go internal clock! I had just started a liquid diet (again) like the week before and ate all the ice in the box. Fun night.
As for the song itself, I LOVE this whole 80s vibe John's got going on right now, although TBH Last Train Home sounds like a Toto ripoff (I thiiink that might've been intentional).
