In honor of the impending Valentine’s day and for a fun way to end your workweek, I thought I’d put up this clip of Tim Minchin‘s song “If I Didn’t Have You.” He addresses love and fate in his typical form:
Normally I would type up some lyrics, but I think you need to just hear it for yourself.
I’ve written a post on love before, so I won’t talk about it much. As wonderful as it is, I don’t believe love is magical or mystical. The notion of soulmates is absurd and detrimental. That said, this song probably isn’t the best one to sing in romantic situations.
Of course, I’m not a person you should listen to when it comes to dating – I once told a girlfriend “So when we break up…” In my defense, I was merely referring to the fact that neither of us wanted marry each other (She was not my girlfriend much longer).
I’m sure I’ve said stupider things, but I can’t think of them off the top of my head. Have a great weekend, guys!
