Above you see “your most pleasing discovery of 1966.” (For the record, I was 3 going on 4 for most of 1966, amd my most pleasing discovery was that I could put chewing gum on the upholstered chair, though this was temporary, since I got caught). The woman on the album cover looks thrilled. I wonder which one of the 20 moods she is in? I would say Cheesed Off, but that isn’t one of them.
And that’s a pretty sweeping statement to make, Reader’s Digest. So you think you’ve captured all my moods? Actually, not only have you left plenty of moods out, you’ve put in some that I never even heard of. Like what precisely is a Starlight mood? Or a Latin mood. Or a Movie mood. If I’m in a Movie mood, I’ll go see a movie, you know.
Now what I really do want is some music for my real, everyday moods! Like Frazzled (that would be music to get everyone off in the morning). Or, What the Hell Am I Making For Dinner Again? That’s a good one. Or, Don’t Ask Me Now, It’s 11 pm.
I already know what music I like if I’m in a good mood, or going out to run, or need to get charged up to go out. I think we all have our favorites. The mood music though. That’s where Reader’s Digest clearly needs help.
-What sort of mood do you think they should have included? And what music would you suggest?
-Has anyone reading ever had a Starlight mood? Or Spectacular. What’s that? Is it a little ego trip (“boy, am I spectacular!”) or that you’re just having a really good day?
If WordPress allows polls (and I will look, but I fear not) I’ll put this in the sidebar (which is acting funny, I might play with the template again).
Later today we will be celebrating National Grape Popsicle Day, so do come back for a refreshing treat later on. And maybe we can find some music for a Popsicle mood (Good Humor joke goes here).
