When you’re feeling down, what music cheers you up?
Well, that depends on if I’m feeling down because (1) I’ve faced stupid and rude people, the woes of public transport and other forces of nature or (2) am simply sad because of mysterious causes such as PMS and the weather and / or personal failures.
In case (1) I’d put either one of the following on repeat:
- The Ramones – Anthology
- Dead Kennedys – Fresh fruit for rotten vegetables
- AC/DC – Highway to hell
Case (2) would mean a different approach – first choice would be either one of this songs:
- Wonderful world, beautiful people – Jimmy Cliff
- You can get it if you really want – Desmond Dekker
- Three little birds – Bob Marley
On a side note: The Dead Kennedys had a good time on my turntable Thursday night…
