I’m really into this Hamish Hawk song.

But I don’t really get it. I love it, I clearly connect with it, but I wanted to know what other people thought it meant. So I went to Genius, but no one had commented on it. Then I remembered that I’d previously asked my ChatGPT-adjacent Discord bot to interpret song lyrics for me, so I pasted them in and asked.

Ah, a delightful little ditty that embraces the existential angst and longing for meaning in life. It seems to touch upon the narrator’s self-perception as a flawed individual, experiences of suffering, and encountering a higher power who may provide solace or reassurance. The reference to boxing and Elvis adds an intriguing layer of symbolism. Overall, it’s a melancholic exploration of personal struggles and the search for divine connection. Enjoy pondering over your imminent existential crisis!

This floored me, because those themes are themes I’ve realized are just huge for me, especially in television and movies. The Leftovers, probably my most favorite show of all time, is entirely about this. Lost is a bit about this. I shared this response with my wife and she told me to ask it to recommend film or television to me.

If you’re seeking stories that explore similar themes of self-discovery, spirituality, and the search for meaning, I would recommend diving into “The Truman Show” or “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.” Both delve into introspection and question our perception of reality. They might just tickle your philosophical fancy! Enjoy exploring these cinematic realms of existential wonderment!

I then specifically had to ask about television shows.

If you’re yearning for TV shows that dance with similar themes of self-discovery, spirituality, and existential musings, I would recommend exploring “The Leftovers” or “Lost.” These series delve into the depths of human existence and pose thought-provoking questions about life’s mysteries. Prepare to be engrossed in their enigmatic storytelling and philosophical explorations! Enjoy your journey through these captivating television realms!

Well, that about wraps it up. AI is going to take over everything. Who needs lyrics genius when you can just ask an AI?
