Inside the Music: Float On

Paula writes:

“Float On” is a quirky upbeat song by Modest Mouse.

I backed my car into a cop car the other day
Well he just drove off sometimes life’s ok
I ran my mouth off a bit too much oh what can i say
Well you just laughed it off it was all ok

And we’ll all float on ok
And we’ll all float on ok
And we’ll all float on ok
And we’ll all float on any way well

Well, a fake Jamaican took every last dime with that scam
It was worth it just to learn from sleight-of-hand
Bad news comes don’t you worry even when it lands
Good news will work its way to all them plans
We both got fired on the exactly the same day
Well we’ll float on good news is on the way

And we’ll all float on ok
And we’ll all float on ok
And we’ll all float on ok
And we’ll all float on alright
Already we’ll all float on
Now don’t worry we’ll all float on
Alright already we’ll all float on
Alright don’t worry we’ll all float on

And we’ll all float on alright
Already we’ll all float on
Alright don’t worry even if things end up a bit to heavy
We’ll all float on alright
Already we’ll all float on
Alright already we’ll all float on
Ok don’t worry we’ll all float on
Even if things get heavy we’ll all float on
Alright already we’ll all float on
Don’t you worry we’ll all float on
All float on

I know this doesn’t sound like your typical love song. That’s because it isn’t. This song just reminds me so much of Joe that I just had to include it on our soundtrack.

One of the many amazing things about Joe is his unfailing optimism. He has an incredibly positive attitude. It’s almost as if it never even dawns on him that things might not go his way. He seems to make good things happen by the sheer force of his attitude.

Joe is forever telling me (the worrier in this almost family) that things are going to be ok. And they usually are. He is teaching me that you just have to keep going and good things come along.

That is why this song reminds me so much of Joe.
