Here’s a SOTD of the day I’ve been wanting to post for awhile. Here’s Royksopp with The Alcoholic and you really can’t (and shouldn’t) take your eyes off the video.
Today’s SOTD is brought to you by The Marshall Tucker Band. I went through a bit of a phase last summer. I go in and out of Southern Rock phases, especially when the weather gets warmer.
Here’s one of their songs where the live version is better: See You Later, I’m Gone.
Tom Petty is always appropriate for those days (or weeks) where you feel introspective and infallibly human.
Here’s Learning to Fly. Yup. That sounds about right.
Today’s SOTD is a sobriety one for me. I first heard this song in January of 2018 and it felt like a rallying cry.
This also marks an electronic break. Time to bring in the guitar riffs and head bangs. Here’s Audioslave and their song, Moth.
Today’s SOTD is one that makes me feel gratitude. Grateful for seeing myself through, one day at a time, safe and sound and sober. I first heard this song when I was still in the throes of tomboozery (so to speak). But I longed to be free of it. I missed the person I used to be. This song makes me think of that person and that time, not so long ago now.
This is Flogging Molly and Whistles the Wind. A good song to feel grateful to.
So yesterday was my birthday. The sun shone all day. Up my sleeve was my still healing sleeve. On my head was a fresh barbershop fade. My button down shirt was crisp. Friends took me out for lunch. I ate a lot and laughed a lot. It was a good day. One of those days where this classic ‘90s song comes to mind.
And yeah, I’m checking all the buckets for this one. Love, survival, sobriety. I’m feeling it all.
What’s more suitable for a Sunday than some old-school gospel? And who better to sock it to us than LaVern Baker. Put on your Sunday best and get ready to bang on your bass drum. Here’s LaVern and her song, “Saved.”
Today’s SOTD is one to float in hyperspace to.
Seriously. Lie down. Close your eyes. And float in outer space for a bit.
That’s all you have to do. Thanks, Trentemoller.
Classic electronica with an 80s vibe from the UK is the theme of late. Here’s another solid contender.
Maverick Sable was featured on an earlier SOTD but not front and centre. To learn more about him, click here.
This is his song, Glory. Filing this under survival – and sobriety.
