What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

 This Ear Candy is Giving Me Cavities

Today’s Wednesday, so I’m posting music. However, this particular piece is so . . . something (beautiful? obnoxious?), I will be posting a second piece of music. I recommend you listen to it once your brain is about ready to explode from this hypnotic offering.

Here’s what happened. I have a Tivo. This means that we rarely are subjected to commercials. However, exhausted and distracted last night after a slightly overwhelming meeting with our contractor, we just let live TV play, and this spot came on:

I was immediately captivated by the deceptively simple music. Two seconds later (thank you, internet!), I had it! It’s a 1970’s recording of “Love You” by (mostly) a Capella group The Free Design. I’m completely fascinated, but it’s also freaking me out a little. It feels so familiar, but I’m pretty sure I’ve never heard it before. There’s a distinctly Baroque-meets-Brady-Bunch feel to it, and I cannot get it out of my head. Seriously. Blasting caps have had no effect. I’m trying not to panic. I suspect my dreams tonight will be scored by recorders and complex harmonies.

Just listen. You’ll see what I mean.

And again. And again. And again. Sorry. I’ve also posted the antidote.

Epilogue: I had to go on iTunes to buy the stupid thing. While I was there, I thought I’d listen to their next most popular song. It is so hilariously inane, I can’t stop laughing. I assume the lyrics were written by a not-terribly-sophisticated 5-year-old.

I have committed to spending part of every day looking for at least one beautiful thing, and sharing what I find with you lovelies!

  2. Despite the simplicity of the music, it provides profound results. My inner child is squealing with delight while spinning circles.

  3. Took me back to high school chorus concerts – it’s a wonder all of us who were children in the 60s and early 70s don’t have diabetes.
