Kimya Dawson: Looking Out the Windshield

by Lindy

I love Kimya Dawson music. I first discovered her alt/folk/acoustic poetry when watching one of my favorite indie movies, “Juno” and I’ve been hooked since.

Did you know Kimya Dawson has a kids’ music CD called “Alpha-Butt?” It’s contains catchy tunes with potty talk that kids and immature adults enjoy.

Three years ago, I even dressed up as Juno for Halloween. I was pregnant at the time and had the perfect outfit and toted a Slurpee. Unfortunately, only a few of our neighbors understood the reference.

Recently, I found this lovely, poetic Kimya Dawson song while on SoundCloud: “Looking Out the Windshield”. Listen to it by clicking on the linkage below.

Here is a snippet of the lyrics that I enjoyed:

“I don’t understand what numbers have to do with success.
Or what sales have to do with happiness.
Unless they’re the kind of sails that carry me to sea.
Where my grandma and grandpa are waiting for me.” – Kimya Dawson lyrics

If you like this song, you might also like her song, “Walk Like Thunder”, where she sings realistically about depression/suicide/death and persevering strength.
