Sound Bite Sunday

I survived my crazy-ass week! Yippee! Or at least I'm assuming I survived since I'm around to post this. I might not be all there mentally for a few days, or physically for that matter, but at least I still have my job!
 
I realized years ago that music has an overwhelmingly interesting affect on me at certain times. And stressful times are a key example. (Or depressed times. Or just being bored times.) But there is always one song I know I can jump in the car, crank up the volume, and drive around aimlessly listening to. And that song will always make me feel better. The best part is that my dad does the same thing. To the same song. And whenever he hears it come on the radio when he's out driving to a client or driving aimlessly to avoid being at home, he always thinks of me. And sometimes, he'll even call me and leave the "power chords" on my voicemail. My dad's pretty awesome.
 
And so, to mark the end of my hectic week and the return of my sanity, an ode to getting by and having fun too!
 
Peace of Mind by Boston
 

Now if you're feelin' kinda low 'bout the dues you've been paying
Future's coming much too slow
And you wanna run but somehow you just keep on stayin'
Can't decide on which way to go
Yeah, yeah, yeah


I understand about indecision
But I don't care if I get behind
People livin' in competition
All I want is to have my peace of mind.

Now you're climbin' to the top of the company ladder
Hope it doesn't take too long
Can'tcha see there'll come a day when it won't matter
Come a day when you'll be gone


I understand about indecision
But I don't care if I get behind
People livin' in competition
All I want is to have my peace of mind.

Take a look ahead, take a look ahead, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah...woa!

Now everybody's got advice they just keep on givin'
Doesn't mean too much to me
Lot's of people out to make-believe they're livin'
Can't decide who they should be.


I understand about indecision
But I don't care if I get behind
People livin' in competition
All I want is to have my peace of mind.

Take a look ahead, take a look ahead. Look ahead.
