Title: "Way to Normal" - the title
Post by: Zoonie on August 27, 2008, 03:32:51 PM
Have I missed something, or has Ben mentioned Nick Drake anywhere along the line?

For non Nick Drake people: he was a beautiful young man who looked spookily like my friend Simon (although that part's not relevant ;). He sang lilting, melancholy songs and was a posh lad from England, who became frustrated that he wasn't famous enough and, idiot that he was, he killed himself.

One of the very gorgeous rekids what he did was "Way to Blue".

It could be related, but there is the for certain fact that "way to normal" is a line in Effington. And he's been quoted to say that it's about making his way back to normal after the divorce... but he's also been strongly defending the fact that the album is not a divorce album.
