Step Into The Light, The Light

by

For those who have seen “The Devil and Daniel Johnston,” you know that beneath Johnston’s seemingly simple and catchy songs there lurks a darkness.  His body of work is made all the more impressive that it was produced while battling severe depression as well as a number of other psychological disorders.

This song got stuck in my head the other day while listening to Pandora radio.  I can’t stop listening to it.  It’s strange.  On the surface it comes off as an optimistic appeal to all the lonely people, but upon repeated listens there’s a unmistakable despear that belies that message, like he doesn’t totally believe what he’s singing, but hoping like hell it’s true.  I don’t know, take a listen, see if doesn’t get stuck in your head too.
