Geek USA, what a monster track.
There are some songs that do the opposite and make me wish I was dead.
From the film of the same name......Alan Price's O Lucky Man. Sums up the joys of life for me in a little over two minutes.
A live version of Sly & the Family Stone, the construction of a groove - it's alive!
