Sad, Sad Sunday with Cullum and Porter

Sad, Sad Sunday

Ladies and gentlemen, I am human. I get sad, often. Sometimes it’s for no reason at all, but at least once a week, I do have a reason: Sundays.

Now, I could be sad about having to go back to work every morning for another whole five days, but that’s not really what makes me sad. Actually the reason is really, really mushy so brace yourselves.

Me and my baby live about an hour drive away. On top of that, I work dayshift and he works night shift. So, the only time we get to see eachother is weekends. Every Friday (most months) he’ll come to my place, or I will go to his, and every Sunday, we’ll part ways again.

So when I heard this song on the radio, it resonated with me. I bled for it. Ladies and gentlemen, this is my anthem, the embodiment of the way I feel, and my new favourite song (for the next couple days or so).

Cullum and Porter

It’s been a while since I’ve made a blog post, so because of this I have to get two out at once. Over the last few months of listening to Toronto’s Jazz station (Jazz FM 91), I’ve heard two voices that I go crazy about every time I hear them. I’m not sure what about each of their voices it is that I love, something about the passion, the tone and timbre, I don’t know. Point is, recently these two men have joined up to recreate a song that was already friggin fantastic, AND I’M SO EXCITED ABOUT IT. This has already made my morning more times than I can recall to memory.
