Tell us how your week went by putting together a playlist of five songs that represent it.
I’m not going to be terribly inventive, but I will tell you about songs I thought about during the week with a brief explanation. And this will be tough. Although I’m an avid music listener, in the past several years I hardly listen to it. In the past twenty-five years or so I’ve been drawn to serious music; if you will, classical. After one immerses themselves in it all other music becomes silly. That is not to say there have not been great tunes rich in feeling, depth of understanding, and musically sound that endure the test of time.
With that in mind I thus offer five songs that entered my brain the past week:
1. My wife and I have been catching the Jodi Arias trial of court TV. The drama is better than Law and Order, Perry Mason, and Matlock all rolled into one. Prosecutor Juan Martinez is a master at getting to the truth and questioning witnesses. If you’re on the stand don’t play with him. He had questioned Jodi Arias for over a week and every time she speaks I think of Liar Liar by The Castaways.
2. She brutally killed her boy friend with a knife. The song The Ballad of Tom Dooley by the Kingston Trio seems appropriate.
3. There is not a Monday that slips by without me humming Monday Monday by the Mamas, and Papa’s.
4. I’m currently writing a novel about a father and son on a sailing adventure. The Sloop John B by the Beach Boys is what I hear while writing.
5. Lastly, Spring is near and nothing sets Spring to music better than Vivaldi’s composition Spring from his masterpiece the Four Seasons.
That’s my week if it were a musical.
I can’t help but include an encore song, given the time change this morning; A Day in the Life by The Beatles.
