The Mean Reds

Holly Golightly: You know those days when you get the mean reds?

Paul Varjak: The mean reds, you mean like the blues?

Holly Golightly: No. The blues are because you're getting fat and maybe it's been raining too long; you're just sad that's all. The mean reds are horrible. Suddenly you're afraid and you don't know what you're afraid of. Do you ever get that feeling?

I know I have a happy go lucky blog, but every once in a while I get in a funk. Give Up the Funk (Tear the Roof off the Sucker).

Anyhoo, a girl needs a hand once in a while, and Santogold is doing that for me.

The first song I heard by her reminded me of Chrissy Hynde but that's just getting started. At times she channels that chick from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and can lay it down like MIA too.

I love her. She has me on my way back to this!

When I get in one of those funks I blast Dave Mathews Band's 'Crash'. The horn intro gets me rocking. Works like a charm every time.
