Two very different pieces of music I highly recommend:
I love the version of Route 66 that Natalie Cole sang. Our tap class danced to it last night and it was the most amazing tap dancing I have done since I started classes at SDC. The tempo was up and we clipped and scuffed and struggled until we could do it without mistakes, dancing along to a fantastic electric guitar jazz solo.
I am terrified of Saturn by Gustav Holst. I was listening to it at work today, and towards the end of the track I actually had to turn it off and take a break, because it was giving me the kind of adrenalin rush I get when I am afraid. I was actually feeling sick in my stomach. My music teacher at high school once mentioned that as a child he was terrified of Mars. I get that. That one is scary in a “we are fighting in a war and everyone is dying” kind of way. But I think Saturn is even more scary. It is more like “I am an old man and I am eating children to fight back my fears of my own mortality”. Argh!
