I’m nostalgic. Maybe that’s why I love Frank Ocean so much. I was driving back from something as mundane as a Taco Bell run and slid  Nostalgia, ULTRA into my car’s CD player. Strawberry Swing started playing, and I started to cry. In fact, I cry every time I hear this song, sometimes just a little, sometimes a lot. It’s just so beautiful. Reading the lyrics  don’t do it justice, and although the video is sweet, find a way to listen to the song, preferably alone, in the sunshine with the wind blowing through your hair. Me, it’s what I’d want played at my memorial. To quote, “I have loved the good times here.” Indeed.
