Singled Out: The March Divide's Still Analog
"Still Analog" is an old song, I wrote it right before I quit playing full time with The Conversation. At the time, I just needed to admit to myself that I had made a real mess of everything. I'm a simple guy that's maybe a little behind the times, and writing another pop song about how I thought I'd been wronged wasn't going to fix anything. Shannon was a girl that I had met on tour and was seeing from South Carolina, our relationship wasn't all that serious, in the song she's more of a metaphor for me wanting to go home and make things right. It's just a song about turning over a new leaf.
Sometimes songs mean a lot and sometimes they don't, this one really did. I know it's pretty ironic that "Still Analog" is a pop song about how another pop song isn't the solution to my bull sh*t, written in one of my lyric notebooks, in bad handwriting, with misspellings, and scribbled out lines. But to my credit, I really got my sh*t together soon after.
