Feel Good 5 Friday

26 Jun

It’s the one thing that can rid you of irritability when you need it the most. Sometimes it’s planned because you’re trying to get rid of the funk. Other times the universe conspires to get you on a better path.

There I was at the stop light, feeling the crankiness of running into stupid people at the market with the added frustration of a bad phone call and the morning frustration of yet yet another rejection email during quarantine.

Never answer while driving, unless it’s your kids of course. Having a hands-free system still doesn’t prevent bad conversations.

But then I broke my mood and silenced my inner dialogue when I turned the dial.

I mean you think you got James Brown moves when the beat drops, because your shoulders feel the funk, but you don’t. But it’s those rhythms that renew your spirit and make you smile. You’re feeling different.

The music magic twirled its baton and I danced my way back to myself. The Spinners saved the day and I was grateful for whomever selected that song to put out on the airwaves.

There’s just something about the vibes you feel when you hear your song. I can’t even play these songs when I’m running or I’ll have to stop and dance. Glad I was close to home because the playlist continued with El Puma and company, and the feel good vibes made it possible to hit the reset button.

Hoping you find yours when you need it.

The Spinners- Working My Way Back

El Puma- Pavo Real

Le Chic – Le Freak

Yaz- Situation

    Yaz! Now THERE is a blast from my past right there! And the Spinners were such a cool sound. Rubberband Man is my favorite.

    I can relate to the vibes a song gifts you. Was in a funk all week and my tunes were the lone respite. They’re always where they need to be.

    Love the Feel Goods.

      Yaz. They were awesome that album was great! I remember dancing to that at my cousin’s quince and everyone was getting down as soon as they heard the first couple beats. I trip out in all the people that remix them and don’t announce the original band, how someone is like that’s such a great song and I’m like let me play you the OG. It’s funny. Rubberband Man! Oh Yeaaaaaaah. Loving that one and clothes that accompanied that one. Sharp. I’m loving those dance moves. Oh man. Have you seen them on The Midnight Special? What am I thinking … that’s probably a yes. Sunshine and waves 🙂
