Give Up The Funk

When I'm cranky or depressed, only one thing can set me straight - more music. It's probably just an excuse, but it usually works.

But I'll save you the lame reviews of bands I've seen recently (The Who, Scissor Sisters, The Ponys, +/-, Mew, Oh No Oh My, Ted Leo, The Black Lips, Say Hi To Your Mom) or music I've bought/downloaded (The Ponys, Human Sexual Response, Ted Leo, The Rakes, a bunch of bootlegs off of Dime, some Husker Du demos/outtakes), or even raving about upcoming shows I'm seeing (like The Stooges, The Dismemberment Plan, Grandmaster Flash, Bloc Party, Ben Gibbard, The Fleshtones, et al).

No, there's really only one thing that stands above the rest that could pull me out of my funk.

Yesterday I bought a ticket to see Pat Benatar. Nothing but Gold Circle for me, baby.

Suddenly, I know it's all going to be ok.

You're a heartbreaker, dream maker, love taker...

Doncha mess around. No no no.
