Songs for funks

Several things are on my mind these days... more than normal if you can imagine that... and it kinda has me in a funk.

So, I've got this song stuck in my head. There's something comforting about a Sarah McLaughlin song when I'm feeling down. Kinda let's me feel sad and inspired at the same time.

"The Freedom Sessions" is the album that really does it for me when it comes to Sarah. Something about the bass and the rawness of the recording that really gets me. It is so sincere. Love that. I want to record an album like that one day.

Shawn Colvin is another of my favs when the funk's got a hold of me. Especially dig the "Fat City" and "Steady On" albums.

Anyway... just thought I'd share.

What songs help you feel better... or... I guess... just feel when you're down?
