Song 94: Sea Wolf – Middle Distance Runner
Artist: Sea Wolf
Song: Middle Distance Runner
While getting a massage today this song came on. While I’m normally able to tune out most of the music or at least not focus on it while relaxed for some reason this one stuck with me. I even remember thinking while listening to it that it would my song for the day. Before hearing it I’d never heard of the artist and I’m pretty sure I’ve never heard any of their other songs. The song looks like it’s been around for at least 5 years now and has multiple links on YouTube with thousands of views so it’s obviously popular among some folks. As a whole, I liked the song, but it was the phrase ‘middle distance runner’ which stuck out to me. It had me wondering what qualified as a ‘middle distance’. I like when lyrics can provoke thoughts – even if they’re pretty meaningless like in this case. Having been into running in the past and still having an interest in it now the idea was particularly interesting to me.
