Radio 83, side B, track 8: “The Middle” by Jimmy Eat World

Jimmy Eat World - The MiddleOh, Jimmy Eat World, I love this song so goddamn much.  I have no idea how I know it, but it’s become one of my favorite songs of ever.  I’m making it an official theme song of this blog because I can.  Every time I hear it it fills me with a nearly unbearable mix of optimism and woe that I can barely contain myself, particularly that last verse where that synthesizer quickly bubbles up to accompany the lyrics.  I knew this song was coming up on my track list, and for the last several days I’ve been singing “Hey.  Don’t write yourself off yet.” to myself quite a bit.  I’ve written myself off a while ago, Jimmy Eat World, but amazing songs like this make me think maybe I shouldn’t.  Because, barring any unforeseen tragedies, I literally am in the middle right now.
