A Coffee and Turn It Up Friday
I was going to come today with all sorts of links and blurbs on the some of the songs I like to crank because a.) I really enjoy them, b.) I like the feeling of a great bass line thrumming through my bones, or c.) I found it to be a great stress reliever (Because yesterday it was all about relieving the stress on my way back to work, my iPod plugged in to the car’s speakers and cranked to a level which vibrated the rearview mirror with every loud, low tone.). But then I procrastinated far too effectively when the time came to work on this post, and thought, “Crap! I gotta narrow this down.” True story. Another true tale: My job has been nutty lately, this week in particular, and yesterday my frustrations threatened to bubble over as I prepared to head back to the office after lunch. I knew I needed to get my mind off of it all for a little bit, having spent most of my lunch break going around in circles about it with God and (here and there) with my cat (who couldn’t care less because he was napping, if you don’t mind).
It was when I was buckled into my car, getting ready to head out, when I decided I needed some good, loud music – something that captured the jumbled-up stress jumping around inside of me. A playlist was selected, and the song I needed was easy to find (thankfully!):
It honestly helped me to release some stress, you guys. By the time I pulled into the parking lot at work, I was breathing more easily and enjoying some of the mellower folktronica tunes on Crowder’s Neon Steeple album.
Ah, a thumping bass. It can do a soul some good.
Happy Friday, y’all!
