This week’s featured song is "Mrs. Potters Lullaby" by Counting Crows. I’m posting it because I’ve got a road trip coming up next week, and this is one of my favorite songs in the world to drive to. The instruments — the piano especially — just have this constant rolling sensation to their notes that make me feel like I’m moving along and getting somewhere.
I’ll often start this song whenever I’m about to drive through a large city on the highway where I’ll have to stay alert and make lots of lane changes and take lots of exits and onramps. It usually gets me most of the way through Council Bluffs, Iowa, on Interstate 29, and that town always seems like it’s trying to kill me.
