My wife and I are sitting in the stands watching our daughters swim practice and The Verve’s Bittersweet Symphony comes on over the loud speaker.
My mood instantly brightens.
This is my alarm every morning. Sometimes I wait a minute to close it, just so I can hear a little more. I’m almost always already awake when it goes off.
It’s the perfect, “I’m gonna make this day my bitch” way to start my day. But in a good way. Can’t explain it, the song just hits the right chord with me. Perhaps it’s that the song isn’t your typical scream, bang on the drums and make that guitar screech song. Don’t get me wrong, I love me some Rob Zombie, Korn and Drowning Pool. Maybe it’s my background in music. I haven’t played or held a microphone in decades but I’ve never lost appreciation for a good tune.
Anyway, just feelin’ the power and thought I’d pass it along.
