call me big papa
Hmmed and hahhhed about what to pick for my 4th of July CHOONOTD.

The Hulk Hogan theme song? Born in the USA? Rhapsody in Blue? American Slore?

After a grand 5 minutes of deliberation I've gone for this

Cos 1) It's Monday and a bit of chirpiness might make a difference 2) It's 2016 and (See previous reason) 3) It's so quintessentially American (or at least so mid 20th century American), so youthful and optimistic and chirpy.

I don't even know if I LIKE it that much. I prefer God Only Knows, like everyone else. It's TOO chirpy. But it might make richly ironic music, to soundtrack the muted video footage of a Donald Trump rally.

Felt's a weird band huh? Some of the stuff I've heard with them seems generic britpop/indie territory, but then tunes like this are very spacious and have an eagerness to reach out.

A beautiful day on which to recommend Scarlatti's sonatas, played on piano, ideally by Murray Perahia, via Spotify:

Or by Horowitz:

Sunny, which is to say: delicate, elegant, playful, inventive, inspirational, BRIGHT, CHOONS
