When I worked in midtown that summer, right near Grand Central, I listened to this song all the time. I was really depressed and anxious and angry all the time. The traffic (human) traffic around Grand Central, even in the late summer, was overwhelming. I specifically remember waiting in a huge crowd of people to get downstairs into the subway on a September afternoon during a thunderstorm, and trying to focus on this song and stay calm. And it worked. I often come back to this song, or things that made me feel good when I felt bad. Like I go home all the time.
