Soul Food


“Music washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.” ~Berthold Auerbach

Now that my spectacularly public and far too honest mope is complete, I need new tunes. Some of my favored songs have come on the recommendation of others. I don’t often have the time to delve into new music as I would like… even in this technological society with music in all its wondrous varieties tucked into every corner of the internet. Much of my iTunes is composed of CDs purchased years ago, a few brilliant downloads and a lot of stuff requested by my kids for their iPods. Big K: Mainstream Pop. Some of it hurts my heart. Little K: Southern Rock (Whew!) and a lot of kitsch (Not so whew!).

And, so, I have a request:

If you could pick a song… just one… to recommend to me, what would it be? Any artist. Any genre. Leave me a comment below with your suggestion. I think a playlist constructed by all of you would be most excellent. I’ll download the songs if I don’t already have them.

Then again, if you cannot pick just one song and are feeling particularly ambitious, feel free to burn me a whole CD. Leave a comment and I’ll happily email my address. In truth, I have no shame when it comes to accepting new tunes.

Music is the food of the soul. Feed me, please.
