Lay down and chill
Surrender to the couch
This is living
This is living

Music can engage and challenge, and it can also be furniture.
It comforts and supports you.

This was another wandering set of tunes, peppered with an altered repetition of the one fave Fabs number.

Ever have a song get stuck in your head?

Ever have an old song bring back a vivid memory of a time and place?

The vibrations don't stop when they reach your ears.

They resonate in your brain and strike sparks as they mix with thoughts and sensations.

They can dig in and set up a long-term residency.

Here was another batch of tunes. Maybe some of them are returning to you like old friends. Maybe some are new to you and will stick around.

It's not up to me, and it's not always up to you...
