    I can’t get over the percussion here. Makes me crazy.
    I’m on the Coronavirus Team in my Hospital - 10 hour days after being retired for over a year. When things get too intense I just play this in my mind. Jim Gordon.

    Great song. I got to see them with Little Feet and The Band. Ah, the good old days when they had lineups like that in one show.

    Speaking of percussion, I love the intro to this one. Crazy, all limbs playing different time.

    This one is different from what's posted above. I put it up a couple of weeks ago in another thread and someone replied that it's Disney pop. Far from it. Lauren Mayberry can sing over a bank of synthesizers dancing around the stage like a whirling Dervish. Or she can sit on a chair and melt your heart. But there's more to this track than that. She's backed by a grand piano and a classical guitar played by an obviously classically trained guitarist playing single note counterpoint to the melody line in the space between it and the piano. This draws the stress right out of me. It also makes me wish I was 35 again.

    PS. You can skip the chatter. The music begins at :50.

    Daisy from 2001 A Space Odyssey. I'm not sure that that's a healthy choice, but it what I always find myself humming.

    I imagine Yui Aragaki (in the red sweater) doing the koi dance.

    I rely on the voices in my head to pick the music.

    What song it is depends on how I'm feeling, but when I'm really down about things or stressed out about how things are turning out, this always helps:
