Boxing Day music

Here's a nice pop ballad from Darin Murphy. Darin is a big Beatle fan and it shows as an influence here. Warning, it's very catchy and you will find this song stuck in your head. Enjoy! If you like this, you can get it on iTunes on Darin's album "Haunted Gardenias", or get it as a download or physical CD through CD Baby.

I love this day, not because I do anything to celebrate it, but because I am a bit of a scrooge... I am relieved with the end of Christmas music saturation, stores and parking lots choked with humanity in full frenzy, retail employees enduring the big push and shove, worry and dread over whether the holiday will measure up, the War on the War on the War on Christmas in the media, my own personal dread, depression and awkward feelings. It's a sigh of relief.

I believe we are going to venture into some stores and purchase a few mundane items.

Nice song! And I like your new header photo too. Looks like the kind of place you'd go to hear Tom Waits or someone.

We just went there recently to see Ian McLagan. It's a great-looking alley (showing the musician back entrance and general smoking area). It's a long narrow venue with a band at one end (with a living room setup in front of the stage) and a very long bar. Happy hours always free.
