You might think you got it rough and life is oh so tough, but… You don’t know… You don’t know what rough means. Take for example the life of a music reviewer like the ones here in our office. We have it rough, standing up in the early hours of the morning, brewing huge pots of coffee (that will be our breakfast, dinner and snack) . Some of the coffee we freeze in the freezer so it becomes hard in order to trick our brain and stomach into thinking that it is actual food… Yeah, you probably didn’t know… Pretty rough…
Then we have to stand in line with our hands folded open for the big rich boss to arrive & pass out material to review or write something about. We stand there for hours, some even have fainted while waiting for the big sucker to arrive. Sometimes the big boss doesn’t even show up at all… You don’t know… You don’t know how hard the life of a music reviewer is…
It is very rare to hear a song that will make us doubt how legit our own rough trouble is. But the song by Sally Wright did just that. It got passed around the internal communication channels at our office and kicked us all from our chairs of self-claimed misery & proudness and you don’t know… You don’t know how tough that felt. The blisters on our buttocks from falling and realizing that we in fact didn’t really know the meaning of having it tough was quite the ear opening experience. It might be a good idea for you to hear and see this passionate expression(it’s a music video, you see?) with your own eyes and ears as otherwise … You don’t know… You don’t know what it is…
I guess it’s about love, because love is painful. It’s a human feeling strictly forbidden by our boss to feel or express at work. When it is all nice and good it’s a euphoric source of happiness and joy, but when the love is over and hearts are broken into pieces it’s so hurtful that the ones who suffer don’t even feel like drinking or eating coffee anymore; it’s pretty tough. I’m sure you know… You know what love is?
