The single worst day of the year?
That’s easy — January 2nd. The festive, holiday month of December is gone. Reality has returned. And whether “reality” means school or work, January 2nd means it’s time to take down the tinsel and start the long march toward spring, summer, fall again, and then all the way back to Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.
April 15th is no joy, but January 2nd is every bit as much of a bummer in this writer’s eyes. So it’s fitting that the first song off the ol’ iPod today has a mournful, downer quality about it.
Today’s morning musical inspiration comes from an Australian electronica duo named the Presets. And if I could remember how this song came to wind up on the official MrSEC.com iPod I’m sure it would be an interesting story. But I haven’t a clue.
“Soon I’ll be a very old man, and very old men they dream of summers… spent with falls in faraway clans while hometown crowds sing hymns of courage.”
