"The researchers found that that sad music has a counterintuitive appeal – it actually makes people feel better. Sad songs allow listeners to experience indirectly the emotions expressed in the lyrics and implied by the (usually) minor-key melodies. The sadness may not directly reflect the listener’s own experiences, but it triggers chemicals in our brain that can produce a cathartic response: tears, chills, an elevated heartbeat. This is not an unpleasant feeling, and may explain why listeners are inclined to buy sad songs and why artists want to write or sing them."

Somebody to Love (live)  -  Jefferson Airplane

Jack Casady

The studio version of this song, which was a huge hit for the Airplane in 1967, has brilliant bass playing but it’s very hard to hear.  This version is not only more interesting, but you can actually hear Cassidy’s bass.  From the album “Bless its Pointed Little Head” recorded in 1968 and released in ‘69.

If you’re a history nerd like me, this might be fun to browse through. I’m trying to find a copy of Kid Baltic’s (or is it “the baltic kid’s?”) first “glitch” piece…1960’s…called something phases of the moon or something…it was composed of scraps of telephone conversations left over at the Bell Company Kid Baltic worked at and i can’t find it anywhere…i know the moniker was an anagram of the dude’s full name….

any takers? google has failed me.
