From Auggie’s Playlist: Wake Up

Auggie follows the rules. Always. No exceptions. He does not agree that rules were made to be broken. In his view, that would have been a waste of everyone’s time.

But even a rule-follower sometimes needs tunes inspired by the spirit of childhood rebellion. Adults don’t know everything, after all. It’s a fine line, though: even adults have a certain amount of sense. That’s why the best kind of childhood rebellion doesn’t reject adults, but instead aches for the tragedy of what becoming adult might mean.

Nobody gets that like Arcade Fire. Their songs are anthems to childhood rebellion. At least, Auggie seems to think so. Auggie like to listen to this one before he plays soccer, runs a race, or takes an exam.

Here it is: Arcade Fire, “Wake Up!”
