still in the dark

ponderous gnome

Today I realized that it's possible in blogger to schedule posts to appear in the future! (I am sometimes a very slow realizer.) I don’t know why I find this so intriguing, but I do.

However, this post is written in the As It Happens moment of right now (11:56 pm.) As it happens, I’m getting ready to go to bed (work early tomorrow) and I’m listening to the song Still in the Dark by Big Joe Turner, which I heard earlier today and made a note to listen again (and again). I got the song from the Blowing The Fuse: 26 R&B Classics That Rocked The Jukebox In 1950 compilation. (I have thoroughly enjoyed any of these collections that I’ve heard.) The iTunes store doesn't have this version - which is more 2AM than the ones they do have - but you can hear 30 seconds of it at Amazon. It's absolutely not a Christmas song, but something about it puts me there. Maybe because it’s almost Christmas now? Maybe because it sounds like something my parents would have listened to when I was a kid, even though I’m pretty sure they didn’t listen to this particular song? Vague family times nostalgia? Anyway. It’s a warm, sad song that suits a cold day - it works in the daytime and the nighttime, but I think its natural habitat is (as the title indicates) in the dark. If there’s light, it’s definitely not a fluorescent bulb. Maybe Christmas tree lights, although I don’t have a Christmas tree yet. SOON!
