Saturday Looks Good To Me - Empty Beach

A false song. Familiar components—shining guitar, reverb, a beautiful voice—served alongside strange sentiments. “Empty Beach” is a man, walking in his neighborhood on a sunny day, feeling good about life (got some solid yardwork done, thinking about making steaks on the grill for dinner, wife: happy, kids: happy), whistling, and then a sinkhole opens up, he falls into it, and a meteor smashes into the sinkhole, obliterating the man, his happiness, and his aspirations for steak. “Empty Beach” is a song that’s bigger on the inside than it is on the outside, pretty and desolate simultaneously.

[BUY One Kiss Ends It All. It's wonderful]

  1. A beautiful song. Thanks so much for sharing. I’m adding this to my newest playlist. We all aspire to steak!

    • Thanks for the kind words! And I’m glad you like the song. (also, in case you are the real Ben Marcus, thank you for writing some of the best books of the last 15-20 years).
