New(ish) John K. Samson song about fantasy baseball, fascist fuckers, the end of the world, demolished hope and helping “to organize something better, something beautiful”. So basically about the summer of 2020.
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.
