Select Carefully Your Mood Music

Gray skies, cool breezes and rain late in the day.  Had my windows open from morning into night.  They still are, and the crickets murmur of everything and nothing.

Ordinarily I dig these kinds of days.  Today was no exception, up to a point.  That point was up until those small shadows detached themselves from the clouds overhead and came down to settle around my heart.  The rain was floating them.  Listening to "It's A Shame About Ray" by the Lemonheads did me no favors.

Raindrops and Ray sounded too much like angst and regret.  That is a soundtrack I can do without. 


  1. All regrets lead somewhere; it's just tough going. You will survive the suffering and be stronger, like a well polished pearl.

  2. Mood music in the car on the way to work this morning: The Big Band of the Bundeswehr, in a segue from the Henry Mancini Medley to a kick-ass version of Route 66. Works for me!

  3. Hmm...you may have to inform your iPod that pleasant music is the order of the week.

  4. LIsten to Tango music, the sort I like is more modern , "nuevo".
    Puts you into all sorts of moods but sad or regret.

  5. Haven't thought of that song in years... Day before yesterday I was reminiscing seeing Lemonheads in the UK (in 1994, I think.)
    Anyway... and here you are writing about that song. 1994 was not my favorite soundtrack either.

    Hang in there. Perhaps you should purge some songs from your playlist.

  6. tell me about it, been there myself. I found that listening to more up beat stuff can help.


"Let your laws come undone
Don't suffer your crimes
Let the love in your heart take control..."

Tell me what is in your heart...
