Lots going on today in American politics, so I thought we could all use a music break. Here are some suggestions from my impressionable youth, but listen to whatever works for you.

Today in 1945, Rod Stewart was born.

Rod Stewart, “Maggie May”

Today in 1953, Pat Benatar was born.

Pat Benatar, “All Fired Up”

And one year ago today, David Bowie died. But his music lives on…

David Bowie, “Space Oddity”

Go sing and dance, folks. You’ll feel so much better.
