We all have our favourite music to suit various moods and occasions.
My usual soundtrack is rock, both classic and today’s music.
Once in a while, when I need to top up my spirituality, I listen to the likes of George Harrison solo, i.e. after his Beatles days, or various folk artists.
But after a particularly sad, depressing stretch of time at the office (see preceding post), I’m so drained that neither George nor any of my rock or folk faves can help in that department.
So, enter Sade and her greatest hits compilation, which I purchased last year.
It’s so smooth and soothing . . . It just fits my mood and state of mind on this weekend, which I can only describe as “somewhat numb and overwhelmed and vulnerable” not only because of what has transpired, but what is to come. We get like that sometimes, when we just need to step back and neutralize our thoughts and emotions.
How about you?
What are some of the soundtracks in your life?

Love Sade Jillian, definitely part of the soundtrack of my life. I saw her in MTL last year as part of jazz fest…outstanding show!
When I am down, I want to get up. When I am up, I want to stay up. I like to listen to artists like Bruce Springsteen, Bob Segar, Garth Brooks.
(1) Flanders and Swann: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qcZmatKcS6U&index=3&list=PLX4bfEa0-tUNSmOcEXJydMz3hFG3oDFne especially from 2.00 minutes (no video – it is too old!)
(2) Schubert 9th Symphony, ‘The Great’ – especially the last movement. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vi85_BDRFXo
Don’t do “soundtracks” of my life. Frankly don’t listen to music that much anymore. However, definitely adore Sade.
