Rose-Colored Ear Muffs

If seeing the world through rose-colored glasses makes everything beautiful, then Loreena McKennitt pumped through head phones is like rose-colored ear muffs. I can’t stop listening to The Dark Night of the Soul. Maybe it’s just me, but when I listen to that song, it’s like I’m getting a deep tissue brain massage. Everything in the world is beautiful and nothing can bother me. There’s a similar effect in the body during orgasm. I forget the specific chemical, but its primary effect is similar.


  1. I feel pretty much the same about the Getz/Gilberto album. It has “The Girl From Ipanema” on it which sometimes gets airplay – but the whole album is bossa nova heaven.

    Usually I am in a mood for Iggy and the Stooges these days. I spend too much time at work.
