Ever have one of those days where Calgon can’t take you away fast enough? One of those days when you wish Scotty could beam you down to an island in the Caribbean. One of those days when even Mary Tyler Moore can’t make it all somehow seem worthwhile?
I’m having one of those days. And since a bathtub, St. Maarten and a cap I can toss in the air are nowhere to be found I’m gonna do what I do best: sit and my desk and stew for a few minutes.
The difference this time is that I’m going to let the healing waters of music wash away all that’s troubling me. Here are five songs that are helping restore my sanity.
“The Ghost in You” by The Psychedelic Furs. It helps even more that I’m seeing them tonight at Port City Music Hall
“Be In Love” by a million local Maine musicians with The Maine Academy of Modern Music
“What Would It Be Like” by Sara Hallie Richardson. Because I sure as heck wanna lie down transfixed by the heat, light, sound…
“Georgy Girl” by The Seekers. How can one stay in a bad mood listening to this? I don’t see how it’s possible.
“Escape Artist” by cellist Zoe Keating. Just because.
