The Creative Melancholy

My mind and heart work and discern at their best in a state I have come to call 'the creative melancholy.' For whatever reasons I have decided would be coarse to try to articulate, the music of the Pixies has always captured this mood for me.

As anti-emo as I am, I like Sense Field's cover of Caribou, the haunting and pretty opener from the first Pixies release, Come on Pilgrim. (1987)

Hmm. Never heard this one before. Dada lyrics!

The melody is melancholy... I had to look up the lyrics since I had never heard the song...
