If last night’s Beth Ditto was too upbeat for you in these dark times, may I suggest an alternative? It’s almost hilariously overwrought, but if you feel the need to lie down on the carpet and stare at the ceiling, Dark Rooms’ “I Get Overwhelmed” is a good soundtrack choice for that.
And if you’re wondering where you heard it recently: it is the song used in the trailer for A Ghost Story. Which is a very cool-looking movie that I am not going to see because Casey Affleck is reprehensible.
Personally I tend to associate leaving the bar at closing time with “Sweet Home Alabama” and the lights coming on in the Midnight Sun after another wild Soul Sunday, but nonetheless, I am into this kicky little jam.
