I just wanted to share a song that I’ve been digging a lot the last month or so. It has catapulted itself into my 2nd most listened-to song in iTunes, out of 5979.

The song is called “A Talk With George” by Jonathan Coulton, and I stumbled onto it when I decided to pick up his last album, Best.Concert.Ever.  I didn’t expect to enjoy the album so much, but I instantly loved it; it has 17 of my 20 most played songs.

The song is about a fictional conversation with George Plimpton, a famous American journalist (non-fiction).  The basic message is to live your life to the fullest, and it, along with Jonathan Coulton’s bio (he quit his job as a programmer to become a full-time musician), really struck a chord with me.


Hope you enjoy it.
