Walt's Best Songs To Get You Out Of A Funk

*Midnight Confessions; The Grass Roots. This classic is a fast cure. Makes me think of summertime and friends long ago.
 
*Midnight Blue; Lou Gramm from Foreigner. I swear I'm not on a "midnight" theme but this is also an upbeat peppy thing.
 
*Beans and Cornbread. Louis Jordan and the Tympany Five. A battle at the dinner table in the deep south featuring Beans vs. Cornbread. Old school at it's best. If you like this 1949 "jump swing" hit, you'll love "Saturday night fish fry!"
 
*Carolina in my mind; James Taylor. I've had some great times at my buddy Tom's place in Laurel Springs, NC. So much so that i bought a small piece of ground there. North Carolina is strikingly beautiful....much like California only more lush. Thinking of Carolina is always a cure.
 
Good Riddance; Green Day. We play this a fair amount on the Eagle. I've heard it many times and it doesn't get old. "I hope you had the time of your life". This song was matched to video as a going away for the original owners of KCRA when they sold in 2000. It floods me with wonderful emotion about that time in my career.
 
 
Is there one song that gets you back on track? What is it?
