Tonight, The Bottle Let Me Down

Actually, I’m not drinking at all. That happens now and again, no matter what you’ve heard.

However, I am torturing my next door neighbor by playing “Hubley’s Honky Tonk Hoedown” repeatedly right next to her wall. This is a mix CD, made for me by my dear friend Smyres and including such favorites as “A Little Bit Lonesome” (by Kasey Chambers) and “Feelin’ Single, Seeing Double” (by Emmylou Harris, who might have a problem). Mostly, I’m just in the mood for that kind of music, but also, I am a terrible person.

Incidentally, how can people listen to mopey music when they’re depressed? I can only deal with this stuff when I’m particularly chipper.

One thought on “Tonight, The Bottle Let Me Down

  1. When I’m bummed out, I tend to use CDs I’ve made that start out with sappy music and gradually get more upbeat. Tends to work wonders.
