Sometimes work can drag on me, especially in winter. Long hours, pitch black darkness for the commute home, wondering what’s it’s all for. Two things help – exercise and music. In winter I usually re-jigger my schedule to go for a lunch-break jog on the Mall, and then work late into the evenings. And when I do run, I admit I often don earphones for an accompanying soundtrack. (I try my best not to be a zombie, though, #bikedc-ers!) This song is a new addition to my running mix, and is a perfect antidote to wintertime blues.
This track by Eric Hutchinson’s is lilting, airy, boppy, and happy. I stumbled across this guy because iTunes said he resembled Jason Mraz. Kind of like bubble gum, or a Coke. In any case, it’s “lite” in every way – upbeat, not too deep, and puts a quick in your step. Reminds me of jogging aimlessly around the Mall and hoping the sun will never set.
