“We’re just two lost souls, Swimming in a fish bowl”

In the spirit of Valentines Day Jamie N Commons covers ‘Wish You Were Here’ by Pink Floyd… 

Love his voice. This song was originally released in 1975… before I was even born. Check the original by Pink Floyd here: 

And did they get you to trade
Your heros for ghosts?
Hot ashes for trees?
Hot air for a cool breeze?
Cold comfort for change?
And did you exchange
A walk on part in the war
For a lead role in a cage?

“I’m a darkened soul.. my streets all pop music and gold.. our lives are on TV.. You switch off and try to sleep…” Blur – Sweet Song

IS IT STILL F*CKING JANUARY!!!?? Unfortunately so. I’m sorry. And yes it really is bitterly cold. And now…..the rain has started too. But there is a way to get through this. We’ve gotta get through this

Firstly something that is going to help your mood is the music on your playlist.

This morning.. I was walking down the road listening to ‘Sweet Song’ by Blur…..

(Photo – Decycle in Dusselldorf – visit streetartutopia.com for more)

And decided.. there had to be a cull in the depressive tunes from my IPod. Well. At this time of year anyway!

So below are some springy…pumping.. *serotonin inducing tunes I’m enjoying!

*serotonin is popularly thought to be a contributor to feelings of well-being and happiness.
