Well, I’m trying to cheer up, anyway. It’s raining, I’m behind in several projects, including several posts, I’ve been exhausted without good cause this weekend, and I’m depressed. I even broke out my anti-depression play list (21 pieces in all), with artists noted:
- “One Fine Day” by the Chiffons
- “The Man on the Flying Trapeze” by Spike Jones and His City Slickers, Doodles Weaver, soloist.
- “Rock-a-Bye Your Baby With A Dixie Melody” and “Zing Went the Strings of My Heart” (Judy Garland at Carnegie Hall)
- “Only You” by the Platters
- “Sweet Caroline” by Neil Diamond
- The First Act Finale of “Iolanthe” and the Overture to “The Pirates of Penzance” by Gilbert and Sullivan
- “I’m a Fool,” by Elvis.
- “Neverland,” sung by Mary Martin.
- “The Star Spangled Banner” by Whitney Houston
- “I Want To Hold Your Hand” and “When I Saw Her Standing There” by the Beatles.
- “Where the Boys Are” by Connie Francis
- “La Mer”by Charles Trenet
- “The Carousel Waltz” by Richard Rodgers.
- “Runaround Sue” by Dion
- “Tessie” by the Dropkick Murphys
- “The Battle Hymn of the Republic” by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir
- “I Can See Clearly Now” by Johnny Nash.
- “A Christmas Festival” by the Boston Pops
If that group doesn’t restore my spirits, it’s time to head for the bridge.
1. I know Ethics Alarms has assigned Joe Biden’s now routine gaffes and misstatements to the Julie Principle category, but you have to admit, “We have the most extensive voter fraud organization in history” is special.
