Man, I haven’t been so stoked on a track in a couple of weeks. That’s a fair estimate right? If you guys have come to know me at all, you know that I am easily excited by good music. But this track breathes a new fire onto the old love that is our screaming Jay Hawkins. Some claps and a beat that plays chase with the pitter patter of a bongo type drum give this song a whole different dimension.
After the tumult of this day, a track like this offers itself as the perfect pick me up. Life baffles me when days like today, because the second you stop to acknowledge that it’s been a pleasant and productive day, something crosses your path in an ungrateful attempt to ruin the entire thing. And then the anger sets in. Maybe a few tears, if you’re really lucky. Whenever it gets to this point, I almost feel like I may as well go all out with the extreme emotions. There’s no point in holding it in, because I don’t know when the next release will be. It could be tomorrow, it could be a month. Just as we pride ourselves on never holding back when it comes to new experiences, risks, living a fulfilling life, I think the same should be said for our moments or days of sadness.
The best part about being angry or sad is knowing that it will pass, and that you will eventually return to a feeling of calm. I think that’s what egged on my anger today, knowing that I deserved it because of the calm that I had remained all day and would resume later on. At some point. I don’t feel angry or sad anymore, and I’m thankful for that. Because there are reasons to be angry and sad forever, but a lot of us are capable of living in flux. We don’t have to be angry forever. We are the controllers.
Anyways, here is a track that is ready to take you to a new level of emotion. Enjoy!
