Monday Morning Inspiration - 2/16/15

What I'm listening to this week:

The Bad Days - David Ramirez

Heard this on my run earlier today. I actually thought this was a Ryan Adams track. This song is lights out and worth listening to immediately. Powerful and great arrangement. 

"There's gonna be days I haven't seen you months, 
Nights when my love is a basement club
There's gonna be weeks when your all alone
Because of the days I'm chained to that open road
I hope that years that we come up short
are swallowed by the years that we make it work"

Cover Me Up - Jason Isbell

"Days we raged, we flew off the page, such damage was done.
But I made it through, with somebody new, I was meant for someone" 

I also love the vocal doubling on the last line of the chorus.

Turtles All The Way Down - Sturgill Simpson

It took me at least five listens to become a fan. Sturgill was way too blown up before I listened so I had outsized expectations. I'm fully on board now, and you should be too. 

"Every time I take a look inside inside that old and fabled book 
I'm blinded and reminded of the pain caused by some old man in the sky 
Marijuana, LSD, psilocybin, and DMT they all changed the way I see 
But love's the only thing that ever saved my life"

indeed.

Listen and have a great week.
