The Gift of Music

I'm not exactly a luddite, but I'm no where near the cutting edge of technology either. I don't wear a watch. I've never owned a cell phone. I did once buy a Sony Walkman – sometime last century. I have a laptop, but riding the subway I read the newspaper and, until yesterday, I listened to ear plugs. A close friend just did me the favor of getting me an inexpensive mp3 player. On it are well over a hundred songs. The first five are some of my favorite hits of the last century. If you are not familiar with them, I recommend these inspiring classics:

Nina Simone Feeling Good
Etta James At Last
Dusty Springfield Son of a Preacher Man
Johnny Nash I Can See Clearly Now
Sam Cooke Change is Gonna Come
