Can't Sleep

I won't toy with the possible reasons, but sleep ain't come easy lately, and tonight it hasn't come at all; so I'm sitting here at *2:30 in the morning, wondering what the hell to do with myself. Gotta be some music of course, maybe a cup of tea? - a few smokes, this post & I'll have another crack at it... I know why I like a drop of wine now, absent hearts n all that.

These are what I need - very plainly, although it's likely a bit rousing given the circumstances; starts smoothly & calmly enough, then gets all lively about two and a half minutes in. S'funny how certain geographical locations crop up in groups when you trawl the world of music - The Shins are yetanother band from Portland, Oregon, which keeps jumping out lately. Anyhow, it's a bloody good song, and I see they've plenty of gigs going this merry month of May, so catch 'em if you can.

There's a staggering number of sleep-related songs I could knock out, but I should try again myself - good to know I won't be short of appropriateness if the same happens tomorrow; or heaven forbid, later tonight.

* make that 3.30, I'm a slow typer.
