This awesome. On Friday night after the New York State Senate approved a marriage equality bill that had already passed the State Assembly, I posted this brief celebratory piece which included a video of the BoDeans’ 1993 song, “Closer to Free,” a song that seemed fitting for the occasion:
Everybody wants to live
How they want to live and
Everybody wants to love
How they want to love and
Everybody wants to be
Closer to free …
Well, it turns out not only did they re-tweet that message, but this morning they responded thusly:
No, gentlemen: You’re awesome. But I appreciate the sentiment.
So, people, feel free to run out and buy their latest CD, Indigo Dreams, when it comes out July 26. I know I will.
