On Spotify, I have a ‘Housework Mix’, a series of upbeat songs designed as a background as I straighten up my place. While originally designed to help me clean my toilet, many of the songs also help me walk out the door and meet the day. Geronimo belongs to my personal category of get-up-and-go songs. It doesn’t have deep lyrics and its melody also seems repetitive.
The song does have this perky you-can-do-it vibe. As the departure to New York went from months to days, I played this song on repeat. I went out my door to experience something and still try to make sense of it. It doesn’t matter if it’s a trip or going back to school. As the song says as it fades out ‘make this leap.’
