This afternoon, Elissa, (one of our daughters) sent me the following e-mail:
Dad, Check out this song. It’s called Little Words by Mandolin Orange. It’s very pretty! Let me know what you think. Have a great afternoon!
She was taking a break from studying for her entrance exams for graduate school and she does not enjoy studying.
I acknowedged the e-mail and mentioned I would listen later as I was in the middle of something. I was not in a “very pretty” mood. It was more like a “Fade To Black” kind of day. Nothing seemed to go as planned and on top of that, by 2pm, I had already driven over 200 miles in the “execution of my duties”. I was so grumpy when I came home that the dogs sensed it and didn’t even want to be around me.
Hell, I didn’t want to be around me.
I remembered the e-mail and listened to this song and then a few others by this band.
To use a tagline from a commercial from the 1980’s… “Music That Melts Stress Away”
If had my druthers, this is the music I would play and I wouldn’t have to drag that damn “Half-Stack” around.
Regardless of your musical tastes, you got to enjoy this.
Check ’em out.
