25 DAYS OF SONGS CHALLENGE: DAY 9 – A SONG THAT MAKES ME HOPEFUL

10 Comments

Pretty much anything by The Sounds of Blackness picks me up, in one way or another, but when I’m at my lowest, ‘The Pressure Pt. 2’ soothes my soul and makes me believe that a way forward is maybe just about possible…

And when I’m more upbeat and on the verge of daring to take a risk, ‘Optimistic’ nails it. To the core.

Enjoy!

And never say die. x

  1. Thank you for sharing this. Really needed it this morning.

  2. No can do. But we oldies are with you, anyway.

  3. If I’m feeling depressed, yesterday’s ‘hopeful’ becomes today’s ‘it’s all a sham and a rort, what were you thinking’. But at least this doesn’t add to the inner gloom.

  4. Right you are, Ms. Meikle, per usual.  When the spirits descend, Monday’s panacea is Tuesday’s abomination.

    That being said,

    PRESSURE DROP, written by FREDERICK “TOOTS” HIBBERT
    Considering the lyrics—“Pressure’s gonna drop on you”—it seems counterintuitive for this to be my encouraging song, yet it is.  And, any version, too—the original from Toots and the Maytals, the Clash, the Specials.  Chalk it up to the flowing bassline and driving melody.  And, maybe, my contrarian nature?
