So You’re Scared And You’re Thinkin’ That Maybe We Ain’t That Young Anymore

In eight minutes it’ll be August 16 and I’ll be thirty years old–and as soon as the clock rolls over I’ll be putting on this stunning solo version of “Thunder Road,” a song that both embraces getting older and flips it off. What better soundtrack for the start of life’s next adventure? (The second song I listen to as a thirtysomething–a thirtysomething!–will almost certainly be “Losing My Edge” by LCD Soundsystem, but that’s for another time and another emotional plane.)
