Take 5 and God Speed


Take 5 is one of those tracks that I can loop over and over again. It tempers irrational exuberance some days and raises the spirit (or spirits) on others, both with a ghostly, dignified poise. Does life and death exist on a continuum, or does a line have to be drawn somewhere? Perhaps the latter.

That the line is drawn at 42 seconds is a point for mysterious coincidences and reading too much into things. After all, we should just enjoy the art of life.

But speaking of loops, a certain rainbow coloured bus is pretty loopy in an analog way. Whenever it comes on, I have a hankering for bubble gum. I can only wonder why.

More later on a great album.
