Until reading your post, I hadn’t heard the original. The mix caught my attention and was downloaded to my workout playlist upon first listen. While I realized the song was about a musician who wasn’t overly impressed with his life, the words were irrelevant to me. However, now that I’ve heard the original, I don’t just hear the words. I feel them. In my life, I can’t relate to “some musician” but I can connect to working hard for something and getting there…or close-ish to there and realizing that it wasn’t quite what I wanted. Thank you for sharing the story behind the hit. Both songs are great and will be used for different purposes in my life.
