Sometime After Midnight

I woke up with this tune in my head, and the song has been replaying in my mind all morning. I've never experienced the events that are the subject of this song, having gotten married before being of legal drinking age. I've never seen an ex in a bar, so the visceral reaction that Airborne Toxic Event's Mikel Jollett seems to have had, I cannot personally relate to, but the song's structure, progression, crescendo, and story is an interesting one - and it is getting a great deal of radio airplay here in Phoenix.


  1. I'm tired of that song. Why doesn't anybody write songs about being deliriously happy after being together more than 20 years?


    Maybe they will play with the Phoenix Symphony.
