It was extremely sunny in my hometown today. The light begged me to come outside, then insulted me with a sharp, chill breeze. So I came back in and wrapped myself up in this song.
I’m not usually here, in my hometown, that is. What keeps me motivated in life is the thought of following the sun towards all the places and people there are left to see and meet, so I tend to do just that. And that’s probably why I’m entranced with Anthony Ferraro’s cover of KING’s “The Story.”
The original version takes me straight to the moon and back again, capturing the moment in which you accept the possibility of both leaving your head in the clouds and your feet moving across the ground. KING sings, “Charting my voyage to a different star/Got a story to tell…I’m so far from home/And still a ways to go, go/The ride is rocky and the road is long/But I know that my soul is never going to steer me wrong.”
Listening to the original and then listening to Anthony Ferraro’s cover reminds me of all the people following their own intuition, and that in doing so, they tend to cross fortunate paths. I hope Ferraro collaborates with KING in the future, because it would sound divine. We can still appreciate their equally exquisite, independent sounds by supporting the two on SoundCloud here and here.
