Saved

Vic Chesnutt & Liz Durrett – Somewhere


The theory is this.
When you’re just about to swallow all those pills, you crank up the music in the apartment, because you secretly want to be saved.
Eventually, someone hears the song that is being played in repeat, and forces their way into your space.
Otherwise you could lie there for days before anyone would notice.
So what song do you pick?
Be considerate.
Something that your neighbors can relate to.
It needs to make an impression.
Old. New. Rock. Pop. Heavy bass. Acoustic. Electric guitars. Instrumental. Lyrics. Male or female vocals.
Think carefully.
It is the greatest decision of your life.
