“Goodbye Horses” by Q Lazzarus

The story goes that sometime during the mid-‘80s, late, great director Jonathan Demme was riding in a taxi in New York City.  During the ride, the cabbie played her demo tape for the him, and the director was apparently so taken with the music that he ended up using her work in several of his films, most notably (and perhaps a little notoriously) in 1991’s Silence of the Lambs.  Yeah.  You know the scene I’m talking about.  That one with Buffalo Bill.

“Kimmi in a Rice Field” by Mr Twin Sister

I wish I was one of those people that remembered their dreams.  My wife is one.  My oldest son appears to be too.  But I’m just not.  I’ll have a vague recollection of thoughts upon waking in the morning, flashes of things that feel more like impressions rather than memories, but then they fade away, vanished from my head often before my feet even hit the floor.  And to be honest, it makes me feel a little left out.

“Elenore” by The Turtles

Coincidentally enough, a couple of days after I decided to write about “Elenore” for this week’s column, my brother posted to Facebook that “The Turtles are criminally underrated.”  He’s not wrong.

“What’s The Frequency, Kenneth?” by R.E.M.

Everyday this waking nightmare continues anew.

Everyday this horror show gets worse and worse.

Everyday my fear of what this country and this world may have in store for my sons grows and grows.

Everyday is an exercise in managing impending panic attacks.
