The world is full of nothing but bad news...sad news, and the weight of it all can be too much to hold sometimes. I just got an email from an Argentine friend that the marriage of Jose Maria Di Bello and his partner, Alex Freyre may just have been permanently tanked. so this is my thread for music that makes us smile when you'd rather cry....please feel free to turn it up.
Its no coincidence that during the harshest years of World War II came some very excstatic and hopefull music. When times are difficult it does us no good to look outward to all thats wrong in the world, we need to look a little closer to home to the little things that bring us joy...more after the fold.
So, As I cook dinner tonight I will be listening to whatever makes me sing badly at the top of my lungs and laugh at myself. Maybe we can all do the something similar. If you don't like my picks...please feel free to share your own.
on tonights playlist are two current favorites. First is posted above. Its a classic from ELO off the Xanadu soundtrack...which I want to have played when I die. (It was a big influence to this skinny 10 year old way back in the day!)
and next is a song from Booty Luv that I always thought would be cool to film different YouTubers dancing to and clip them all together....silly I know..
ooohh!...maybe I'll dig out my Rocky Horror Picture show and timewarp next!
