Top 30 Favorite Songs of All Time: #16 “Someday” by The Strokes

I remember first hearing this song on the soundtrack for MLB 07: The Show, the baseball game with David Wright on the cover. Man, this song was good, has been good, and I have a feeling that to me, it will always be good.

This gem is off of their album, Is This It.

 

The Strokes have slowly been climbing on my favorite artists ladder, too.

If this list were actually structured, this would definitely be in the top 5.

Enjoy the song!

On my way to NYC, I remembered one of the Big Cheese’s lessons: parallel lines are odd. And so I took this. Cool story, bro.

Something a Mets fan can be proud about.

Being a Mets fan for all my life, I’ve seen them do great, tremendous even. I’ve seen them one step away from the pedestal of victory. I’ve shed tears of despair. I’ve seen their collapse and all the more recent struggles the Flushing bats have gone through.

Winning isn’t everything, but it is important. The Mets haven’t won a World Series since 1986, but they’ve been so close. A fan doesn’t just take pride in winning, however. Especially if you’re a Mets fan. It’s a rare event to be proud of them winning, because of the rarity of a win.

But this year, even if the Mets haven’t made it to the playoffs, this year is a proud year.

First, Johan Santana threw the first no-hitter in Mets history.

Then, knuckleballer R.A. Dickey throws several one-hit games, unbelievably close to a no-no every time.

But Dickey was consistent. He won. Numerous times. 20 times, in fact. The guy became an ace. The Mets’ go-to starter. Dickey is the first Mets pitcher in 22 years to be a 20 game winner. That’s something a Mets fan can be proud about. Even through all the struggles, the years since a playoff berth, the World Series championship drought… With this bright (but lets face it, a soon to be fading) light named R.A. Dickey, we can be proud.

I love food, espcially when it’s the good variety. Putting each bite in your mouth is like Christmas morning. Great food will give you a flavor explosion with each bite.

Bill’s Special Baked Meatloaf with Hickory-Smoked Bacon and Tomato Chutney is just that, a flavor explosion with each bite. The name, also a mouthful, says it all. I don’t go that crazy over meatloaf, but this one is truly an exception.

This can be ordered in NYC’s NoHo star, a semi-small spot in lower Manhattan, Bill’s Special Baked Meatloaf with Hickory-Smoked Bacon and Tomato Chutney is just one of the many interesting items on the menu. One of my other favorites is Squid Salad.
