Rejection Playlist, Volume 1, Track 10: “Stay Gold”

I am absolutely in love with Big Pink, especially the song “Stay Gold.” It’s perfect for those moments when you’re getting good at talking yourself out of doing what you love because it’s tearing you apart. Because you’re tired of hearing “no.”

A time to love, a time to fly
And beat the darkness into light
We’ll write our names across the town
Up is up and so is down

Forgive your lovers, but don’t forget their names
And let their spirit remain
Stay gold (gold)
Shut the lights, for the rest to follow
Gold
Shut the lights, for the rest to follow
Gold
Shut the lights, for the rest to follow

This… just won’t go
Come let the…

This song is especially catchy.  I think it’s time you get out of your chair and dance it out. It’s time to “stay gold.”
