Oh Friday: Daniel Johnston – Living Life

Adam’s back! It’s been a tough ride without him for the last few weeks, but any post from his is always a great time for SWR, particularly when he posts new shit I hadn’t heard about before. It’s Friday, and for most of the working world this will be the last day of our arduous, grotesquely mundane work week. So close it out with some more Johnston, and be ready to start the week a new with him also. Why else would we be here if we weren’t going to make the most of it?

Hold me like a mother would
Like I always knew somebody should
though tomorrow don’t look that good
Well, it just goes to show

Though people say we’re an unlikely couple
I’m seeing double of you

Oh.

This is life
This is life
And everything’s all right
Living living living living living living living living life

Oh
I’m hoping though
because I’m learning to cope
with the emotion-less mediocrity
Oh.

Day-to-day living

Oh
I can’t help being restless
When everything’s so tasteless

And all the colors seem to have faded away.

Oh.
This is life
This is life
And everything’s all right
Living living living living living living living living life

Hold me like a mother would
Like I always knew somebody should, yeah.
though tomorrow don’t look that good
Well, just goes to show
Though people say we’re an unlikely couple
Doris Day, and Mott the Hoople

Ohhh,..
Ahh…
Life!

  1. What’s that one you all want to hear? Speeding Motorcycle!

  2. Hahahaha, that was so awesome. I hope he comes back to NY soon. No dates around here as of yet, but there is a new photobook being funded on kickstarter about him. So maybe soon?
