Music Soothes The Savage Beast

My soundtrack these days consists of two songs played over and over: “I Like to Move It” by Reel 2 Real featuring The Mad Stuntman, and “Speed of Sound” by Coldplay. The first one is my sanity-saver, while the second one is my “lift-my-spirits-up” song, especially the refrain:

All that noise, and all that sound,
All those places I got found.
And birds go flying at the speed of sound,
to show you how it all began.
Birds came flying from the underground—
if you could see it then you’d understand?


Actually I don’t understand what Chris Martin is saying with that song, but its catchy melody, the inescapable piano hook and his mournful-yet-hopeful falsetto all combine in a giddy display of what a well-crafted pop song can do: raise the spirits and make the day a little brighter.

And if that still doesn’t perk things up, then I do the Robot Dance!

I like to move it, move it!
I like to move it, move it!
I like to move it, move it!
You like to—move it!
