The first piece of music I found that just really resonated with me is a piece by Saffire aka The Uppity Blues Women called Bald Headed Blues. I was introduced to this over at Smart Bitches, Trashy Books. As SB Sarah said "It’s a new year to kick cancer’s ass." Velda my dear, this is for you.
The other music I found that spoke to me was more than one piece. It is music put out through the Playing For Change Project which I found thanks to Baby On Mind and her show and tell post. Baby On Mind featured Playing For Change's rendition of Stand By Me and says that for her it "reminds [her] that we in the ALI community can definitely use someone to stand by us!" I have always loved the song Stand By Me and this version of it is one of my favorite.
I also loved Felangaye by TiTi Tsira of Playing For Change. Check out the rest of their music. It is all fabulous.
BTW, did you know it can be very difficult to type out a post when you can't stop dancing? What music soothes you or lifts you up when you are down?
