How it Works:
1: Listen to the Artist Interview.
2: Pause and play as you go, pull quotes that resonate with your story into your journal.
3: Journal 15-60 minutes without interruption.
The Love Story behind “My Best Friend’s Suicide”
Guitarist and Songwriter for Borderline Delusion, Danny, reminiscences over his dear friend Jason. The song “My Best Friend’s Suicide” not only details the act, but asks important questions surviving loved ones deal with. Such as, “why did you have to die” and “why did you leave me alone?”
Danny’s interview features spinets of the song, which he then discusses and explains. Mainly, Danny brings up the notion of forgetting Jason. The song is Danny’s way to never forget.
As a result, Danny feels as though Jason remains with him. Tethered to memories and music, Danny reflects on the pain and darkness he shared with his friend. Through the music, Danny heals in a way that also honors Jason.
