Still working on getting my headspace into regular posting. SO MANY THINGS going on. The rollercoaster of life and the world have been a bit much, to say the least. I don't think anyone's having a great time of it, and the curves keep coming. Together we can help each other through. Along those lines, I want to an album that gives me great joy and strength:
While We're At It - The Mighty Mighty Bosstones
This album came out two years ago today (6/15). It played a huge part in generating optimism through the post-concussion syndrome & mTBI recovery.
I posted a review at iTunes, but also I've wanted to do mini reviews of each song ever since. For a range of reasons it never quite happened, so I'm starting now.
Track 1: Green Bay, Wisconsin.
From the opening guitar rift and "WhoooO!" straight through to the "Ha Ha Haa!" at the end, this song is joyous ska celebration. I defy you to listen to this and not want to dance. No apologies, regrets, shame, or remorse.
