Blue

In a roundabout and unintended way, a friend reminded me of this song; one of my favorite from the 1990s. It’s an especially poignant one. It came out a couple of years after college, when I found I’d drifted away from most of my friends, which is what the song is about. That, and finding out who you’re real friends are (and, to take full responsibility, who you’re a real friend of, too.)

Bonus video — I think this song [Edit: Oops, that linked to the same video as above; now it’s fixed] by my latest favorite band is kind of about the same thing, although perhaps more cynical and less sentimental.

You wouldn’t want an angel watching over you;
Surprise surprise they wouldn’t want to see
Another uninnocent elegant fall into the unmagnificent lives of adults.

For the record, being an adult isn’t all that bad. But I remember the feeling of uninnocent fall when we all started buying houses and building resumes. These two songs put together capture about five years of my life.
