So now you know
(Who gets mystified)
So now you know
(Who gets mystified)

Show me the power child, I’d like to say
That I’m down on my knees today
It gives me the butterflies, gives me away
‘Til I’m up on my feet again
I’m feeling, I?m feeling
Outshined, outshined, outshined, outshined

— Chris Cornell, Soundgarden

You can count on it. This won’t be the last song I promote on Bonus Post Friday. Chris Cornell is one of my faves. Soundgarden, Audioslave, solo, what have you. It’s all good. Damn good.

But, Outshined, is my absolute top when it comes to the Cornell’s magic. It blares inside my car while I drive around checking errands off my list. I envision my college days. The scenes center on the entry-level, night-course I took on graphic arts/printing. My classmates and I are busy creating. Then, in the midst of screen-printing some t-shirts, Chris Cornell belts Outshined from the in-ceiling speakers or from someone’s boom box (it was still the ’90s, people).
