Jordy’s new single “Story of a Boy” is a powerful and emotional reboot of the 2000 hit song “Absolutely (Story of a Girl)” by Nine Days. As a gay man who grew up closeted in the 2000s, this song hit close to home for me.
The song has a way of tapping into those emotions and memories, and it’s incredibly powerful. For me, it was like revisiting a part of my past that I had long since buried. The song forces me to confront those feelings head-on, and it’s both painful and cathartic.
Listening to this song, I am struck by how much has changed in the past 23 years. Growing up, I couldn’t find music that represented my experiences as a gay man. I remember feeling alone and invisible like my struggles and emotions weren’t valid or worth discussing. But with “Story of a Boy,” Jordy is creating a space where LGBTQ+ individuals can see themselves reflected in the music they listen to.
In conclusion, Jordy’s “Story of a Boy” is a powerful and emotional song that resonated deeply with me. It’s a reminder that our past experiences and memories shape who we are and that it’s okay to confront and process them. The song is a powerful anthem for the LGBTQ+ community, and I’m sure it will resonate with many others who have gone through similar experiences.
