I (Still) Hear Colors

My favorite current band (for about the past decade) is The Black Angels. They helped form Psych-Fest, now called Levitation Festival in Austin, TX. It's my dream music & art festival to attend.  A few years ago they released I Hear Colors. After my post yesterday & subsequent comments, and the fact it's still happening today, I thought I'd post this song.

I've seen The Black Angels live 3 times now. They are AMAZING live!

When I first heard this song, I thought--wow, other people hear colors (some are much too loud sometimes!) and see sound? It isn't just me? Then, there was a thread devoted to synesthesia (and related neurological disorders/anomalies) in the NaNoWriMo forums the past couple of years. I've also passed this down to my daughter. It's too bad I wasn't close enough to the 'rents to see where this comes from.

Meanwhile, this migraine keeps pressing on. I keep hoping poetry will be one of the side-effects, but it hasn't happened thus far...
