Check Out The Calvin Harris 'Flashback' Video

Perhaps no other pop song has resonated so deeply with me this year than Calvin Harris' urgent "Flashback"—which, thankfully, is slated for a proper single release on November 2 in the United Kingdom (complete with mixes by David Guetta and Eric Prydz).

I did a freelance gig at for ABC's website over the summer, and I'd blast this song each night as I was driving home in the August evening.

Here's the video clip:



Maybe it's the way 2009 has slapped so many around like badminton birdies, but these lines seem to ring so true:

If I could change my state of mind, then I would disappear...
Why can't I realize I'm fighting for my life?

Or then again, maybe it's just that the fact that this sounds like an early '90s D:Ream jam...
