Morning Hype! Forcing The Issue...

Morning Hype! Forcing The Issue...

It's pretty chilly for mid-July. The skies are a drab ashen, the winds blusterous. The missus had a headache and clearly didn't want to leave the house, the mutt has barely moved a muscle. I drank too much this weekend and should probably vacuum the floor. 

Sometimes music must be utilized as a tool for more than just pleasure or amusement. Today I need it to fill my space with life. So I thought to myself, "What's the happiest song I know?" Blondie's 'The Tide Is High' immediately came to mind, but seeing and consequently playing a link to the original Rock Steady version by The Paragons really injected a vibrancy into the house that from the start was very obviously absent. Sometimes you just have to force the issue. It also happens to be founding member John Holt's birthday today. Rest In Peace, Mr. Holt, and thanks for the Monday morning motivation.
