High Fidelity (2000) starts with John Cusack’s character cautioning that listening to sad pop songs is dangerous, and could cause depression and self-destructive behaviour in the unsupervised listener.
This is a perfect example of a song that would make you leave the safety of your house and seek out a doomed but luminous love affair, just to experience what Gregory Alan Isakov is on about.
Well, I lied to you when I knocked upon your door
See I was nowhere near your neighborhood
But if this all in our mind
If this is all just in our minds
Honey would you mind
Getting out of mine
Here’s the studio version.
