My personality seems to always naturally lean towards the cynical, negative, sarcastic. It’s a cop out, because it’s easy to feel like that. I wanted to counter that by sharing some nice, uplifting, lovely and cheerful songs. Florence & The Machine’s – Shake It Out, is actually pretty dark but the sentiment, and overall feeling is one of hope, overcoming and letting go.
John Legend’s ‘Save Room’ is beautiful and soothing, The Shapeshifters – ‘Lola’s Theme’ is fun and triumphant (shot Shirl) and I thought I’d throw in Luther Vandross – ‘Never Too Much’ for good measure.
