Favorite Songs of the Year: John K. Samson – “When I Write My Master’s Thesis”
John K. Samson is a fantastic songwriter and head of one of my all-time favorite bands, The Weakerthans. He released a good solo album this year – Provincial Road – but for some reason, it didn’t get so many spins on my record player (hard disk) I also developed a strong crush on this song, determined to make it my anthem to the year 2012: When I write my master’s thesis. But for some reason, I didn’t listen to it that much afterall.
Maybe because I didn’t write my master’s thesis.
