Yesterday I reported on the Lagnley Schools Music Project. Its a recording made in 1977 in a Canadian Gym by grade school students.
I’m addicted to it. Everyone I let listen to it has caught the bug immediately.
I can’t explain it, but you must listen to this. You just must. If you don’t get it after listening to it, then you are beyond help.
The music is in no way professional. The recording is subpar. The instruments are nothing more than a guitar and some chimes. And yet…..I’ve listened to their version of God Only Knows over 100 times in the last day and purchased the entire album.
This is feel good music in the most literal sense of the word. You can’t listen to these kids sing “Saturday Night” by the Bay City Rollers and not get a smile on your face.
I also got a haircut on Sunday. It wasn’t just a haircut, but an Xtreme haircut. My hair is so short that I can barely pinch any between my thumb and forefinger. I would only slightly be exaggerating to say I have more hair on my face than on my head. The only reason I bring this up is because since I got this haircut, I’ve had a tremendous amount of energy and have been amazingly productive.
I should flesh out a theory of how hair is a manifestation of negative energy and try to become a guru and sell books. If you think about it, hair is dead. A full head of hair is a head of death. A bald head is a “life head”.
This idea just gets better as I write it.
