I feel optimistic. Yes, it’s 2020, and all kinds of crap has hit the fan. Still, I feel like something changed with the onset of Fall. There’s been a few things personally that have given me this mindset. There’s been a few things on a wider, national scale as well. I won’t go into the specifics, that’s not what you’re here for. I will say that, despite the feeling of change in the wind, I feel like I’m about to travel a few unknown paths. This is hopeful, but it’s also scary. So, that’s what this week’s playlist is all about. Songs that document the feelings, the thoughts, and everything involved in traveling roads unknown.
Unknown paths feature songs of hope, such as Something Good Coming by Tom Petty, and Things Can Only Get Better by Howard Jones. This playlist also features songs of fear, such as Hold Yr Terror Close by The Go! Team, and A Pain That I’m Used To, by Depeche Mode. There are songs of blind faith, such as Jump by Van Halen (RIP Eddie), and Don’t Look Back by Fine Young Cannibals. You’ll hear songs about the journey itself, such as Winds of Change by Scorpions, 60 Miles an Hour by New Order, and Ring of Fire by Johnny Cash. You will even hear songs about the decisions one must make on the journey, like Flight Test by The Flaming Lips. This playlist travels a whole gambit of emotions.
Enjoy Unknown Paths, and may the same optimism find you as you travel the road of life.
Where will your unknown paths lead?
Folks, the election is less than a month away. Vote! For the love of all that is good and right, please, vote! Most of you reading this know that a certain candidate is one of the worst things that’s ever happened to our country. I don’t get political too often (except when I do), but we’re in perilous times here. I feel optimistic we’ll be able to get rid of said candidate this time around. Still, do your patriotic duty. Vote! It’s one of the few powers we have. The flies won’t always side with us after all! Ok, cheap jab, but come on, that fly was just funny as all.
Rock on, Rock steady everyone. And don’t forget, rock the vote!
