My little dude is getting worked up over going to China and leaving his girlfriend both for that and college three days later. He comes home today asking me "Did anyone do Leaving on a Jet Plane before?"
"Before who or what?" queries I.
"Before Rancid," he sez.
"Um, yeah," I say. "It was written by a guy who was the polar opposite of Rancid, John Denver and made popular by another horribly clean cut group called Peter, Paul and Mary."
Then I asked him to play the Rancid version which in a frenetic, I'm-torn-but-that's-the-way-it-is fashion is killer. Fits his mood perfectly and anyone who's had to leave with longing.
