Stompa - Serena Ryder


Hey friends!  So my son decided to slick our computer and this did not go as planned.  We can't get it to reboot so I have been sadly without a computer for the past few weeks.  So I'm at a friends and decided to share my new favorite song.  Stompa by Serena Ryder.  Have an awesome day!

Cheerful songs about death


I've been reading a book "A Tale for the Time Being"by Ruth Ozeki which has strong elements of life, death, suicide.  I keep hearing "The Great Exhale" by The Great Lake Swimmers in my head.  I wouldn't say that is a cheerful song about death but let's say hopeful.  Maybe I'm morbid but I like thinking about these things.  What comes next?  Will it be better or worse?  Is there even any next?  So here are a few songs to contemplate these questions.  It's an excellent book by the way.  I recommend it and I recommend these songs.  I'm just recommending all over the place this morning. 

By the way, I just love this band and I love the strings in this song. 

"Buried" by Family of the Year is absolutely a cheerful song about death. 

"Travelin' On" by Norah Jane Struthers.  My favorites song from her new album.


"Everybody you ever know is going to die, that's all right, there's a big white bed up in heaven"
"Big White Bed by Guster
