All Falls Down

I’ve always been a sucker for a good Kanye West song – just my way of saying me holding him in high regard as a musician has nothing to do with the way he carries himself.

His recent┬ámusic hasn’t rubbed me the right way but I still listen to his old stuff from College Dropout come right up to Graduation. After he ‘graduated’ though, I don’t know. Just no longer my style. He’s got new fans now. New slaves.

Today’s Daily Prompt asks:

The friendly, English-speaking extraterrestrial you run into outside your house is asking you to recommend the one book, movie, or song that explains what humans are all about. What do you pick?

Of course, only one┬ásong naturally comes to mind (and to kill two birds with one stone I’ll feature it as my Flashback Friday track!)

Because somewhere along the way we got caught up in this self-perpetuating cycle that makes us forget, or deny, what is most important in this life.
