Secretly, I long to be a DJ. Had a stint as one during my college years and loved it. I started out with the graveyard shift and maybe one or two drunken listeners and then graduated to a weekend slot that had more audio magnitude allowing me to share the music I love with a wider audience. There’s a fantastic local cummunity radio station here in Maine (WERU) that I’ve got my beedy eyes on.
But until that time, here’s a playlist for anyone who is strongly wishing for anything. Here in Maine, I’m dying for it to be spring. I’d give up my next story idea for a glimpse of a green shoot or a bud feathering to leaf. Or even a damn moth at the window at night.
I’m a strong beliver in using the force that through the green fuse drives the flower!
And since music is such a strong mood inducer, here’s some tonic for the troops:
1. “Aim High” Paul Weller
2. “Town Called Malice” The Jam
3. “Parklife” Blur
4. “The Devil’s Crayon” Wild Beasts
5. “Rat In Mi Kitchen,” UB40
6. “Kool-Aid” BAD
7. “Five Man Army” Massive Attack
8. “My Girls” Animal Collective
9. “Dusted” Leftfield
10. “Sensations in the Dark” Gruff Rhys
