The first time I heard this song, I had the windows down, driving along some dirt road, blaring the radio and this song came on. It was divine intervention.
I came across this track perhaps during work, looking for something solid to steam. I don’t even know what genre to call this. It’s essentially a blend of Hip Hop beats and Jazz music looped – the channel calls this Jazz Hop. What a perfect name. I could work all day to this.
When I work on this blog, or that blog, or the other blog, or the thing about blogging, I do it from behind my laptop. And behind the laptop is always a hot cup of coffee. I get more done at a coffee house downtown than at home – too many distractions. And when I’m out and about writing, this is one of my favorite tracks to listen to
When I lived downtown in the big city, I played in a band. After practice, I would drive towards the lake with a coffee and just sit. It would be cold, leaf-less, and lonely. And a favourite radio channel of mine, CBC Radio 2, played this song once as I fled the condo towers and sped through bare trees and old homes of High Park. This song is how I felt back then.
Somedays /nights, I sit at my deck, at my laptop, and work. I have project and lists and thing to do, and sometimes I need to put my head down and type. Or get my tools out and fix and re-solder that thing I’ve been meaning to. Or sometimes I need to completely rebuild a computer. There are tons of instances where I need to hunker down and ‘do’. And I found music that really helps.
