It’s been awhile since I wrote a music blog. Now is probably a good time to get at it again. Like most bboys I need a soundtrack to my life. Music has a way of snapping me out of a funk or motivating a project I’m working on. The song by John Frusciante, former Red Hot Chili Peppers member, has been a good way for me cap what’s been a rough week.
It’s a sunny Friday here in Salt Lake and this songs chill but playful melody is a great way to take me into my weekend. Enjoy and I hope you all have a relaxing weekend.
