Welcome back to Music Mondays. Maybe you were expecting an upbeat song that sounds more like a celebration for the new year. Maybe you were expecting something a little peppy and pop-ish. Sorry. You won’t ever hear any Katy Perry or Rebeccah Black songs on Soul Gourmet. I prefer real music. Good music.
So I chose, “A Long December” by the Counting Crows.
I like this song because of the sad overtones above the hopeful undertones. I think the beginning of the song says it best:
A long December and there’s reason to believe
Maybe this year will be better than the last
I guess the winter makes you laugh a little slower
Makes you talk a little lower..
Here’s to a new year. May it be better than the last. Enjoy.
