Day Three Hundred Thirty One 2012

“Rainy days and Mondays always get me down.” Not really. Mondays don’t bother me much—other than it’s laundry day around my house—and we could use some rain right now. Keeps all those huge piles of leaves on my street from blowing back into the yards. Will the city ever come along and suck them all up? Anyway, you know what gets me down? That song—Rainy Days and Mondays. Karen Carpenter’s voice on this one totally convinces me that she’s having a bad day. She did have a beautiful voice. I had forgotten that she was an exceptional drummer. Have a listen if you’re in the mood.
always gets me down

I forgot she was a drummer, too. I have always liked this song - I remember Scott Poteet used to say "nothing but to do but frown". The weird things I remember! :)

Jane, I remember Scott saying that :0) That song is kind of melancholy. Karen Carpenter had a gorgeous voice!
