NY3

today's playlist

This morning on the way to work, my iPod served up this unexpected but oddly cohesive mix:

Fire and rain - Mat Kearney
Guy romance theme - The longest night in Shanghai Soundtrack - Guy Berryman
Dragonfly - Magne F
Somewhere only we know - Keane
The summers of our youth - a-ha
The blue sky (Live at RAH) - a-ha
Girl in the moon - Icehouse
Go back, rewrite - Marius Beck
Never be ready - Mat Kearney
Picking up the pieces - Blue October


It's strange how well the songs suited my subdued mood today; several people I care deeply about are going through a really difficult time, and they are constantly on my mind. But their situations are things I can't help with, so I can only hold a vigil in my heart until things improve for them. Sigh.

I hadn't heard 'Summers of our youth' in a long time. It's one of my favorite songs of Magne's, and one that I wish more people could have a chance to hear even just once.
