I was listening to City of the Sun last night, and got to thinking about that stupid instrument I had to play in 4th/5th grade.
Actually, the recorder.
It was 25 years ago, but I have a couple distinct memories from music class.
One, my teacher looking at me with that look that I knew meant “what the heck are you doing ruining the song for the entire class? How are you so bad at this?“. Second, constantly pretending to play along, but not really blowing at all (so as not to actually make any noise) without getting caught by the teacher.
So, who else played that f*cking recorder — but didn’t really PLAY the recorder?
