Come with us, run with us, we're gonna change the world
My coping strategy for returning work tomorrow is to listen to Matt Monro's We're Gonna Change the World (mp3) full bung on the short, yet depressing walk between the daydreamy cocoon of the train and the stark reality of the office*. And to keep listening until I believe that glorious, people-powered change is possible. Every I time hear this it puts a spring in my step because the tune is so jolly and the lyrics are so bizarre. It's a good tune to start a new year.
And here's 2007's new year tune. There wasn't one for 2008. Very remiss of me. That's probably why it wasn't a great year. It didn't have an anthem.
* Songs 1, 2, 3 and 7 of my most listened to songs are the ones deployed on this journey. Those and The Man Don't Give A F*ck by the Super Furry Animals.
