look down, observe footwear


Any day in January when you can go for a brisk 2 1/2 mile walk at 4:30 in the afternoon wearing sandals is a good day.  For the record, the last day I wore sandals was December 3rd of last year.  The last month where I did not put them on once was last February.

A day like this calls for a playlist, and my digital music software came through in spades.  This playlist is pure shuffle, and it may take you as far as three miles, if you walk faster than I do and don’t have to stop for dogs.  I call it A Warm Day In January:

  • A Kiss To Build A Dream On– Louis Armstrong
  • Wasted On The Way– Crosby, Stills and Nash
  • Runaway Train– Soul Asylum
  • Bus Dem Shut (Pyaka)– Bob Marley
  • Pressure Drop– the Clash
  • Radio Song– R.E.M., featuring KRS-One
  • Chega De Saudade– Elaine Elias
  • Night Fever– the Bee Gees
  • No Myth– Michael Penn
  • Warm Love– Van Morrison
  • London Calling– the Clash
  • Losing My Religion– R.E.M.

This lucky shuffle gets you a nice mix of tones and tempos while keeping up a good walking pace, and combines some well known songs with some that are more obscure.  The “Chega De Saudade” is one of my very favorites.  Elaine Elias is underrated.
