At an all-day music festival yesterday…
Me: “Oh The Roots are here! Do you think they’ll play ‘Send Me On My Way?!'”
Eric (frequent concert-goer and knower of music): “The Roots do NOT sing that song.”
Me: “Yes they do! <singing> I would like to reach out my hand…”
Eric: “No. Stop it. That’s not The Roots. That’s a completely different band.”
Me (feeing cool because I know something about music that he doesn’t): “I am like 100% SURE I’m right about this. The Roots sing that song.”
Eric: “You know who The Roots are right? They’re on…”
Me: “Jimmy Fallon! I know.”
Eric: “And you think they sing Send Me On My Way?”
They do not. That’s Rusted Root.
And I am never again allowed to speak at concerts.
