Unhinged Episode #046: I Just Want To Celebrate

This week, we first discuss how Doug’s mental state has improved and what he has been doing personally to make sure he can stay in a good place. This includes proper diet and supplements that help replenish the brain of important nutrients. His donated guitar has also helped bring music back into his life.

Yes, we return to the topic of music and music therapy as we each go on to list our top 10 favorite songs of all time. We go through each one and explain what it means to us, why it’s on our list, and how it makes us feel. With Doug’s great knowledge of musical artists and rock history, he even goes into some details about each artist, many of which had to deal with their own mental issues or dependencies.

We learn that many songs we discuss are rooted in past experiences, which is why we love to listen to them when times are good, but also why they can sometimes be hard to listen to when our mood is down.

  1. Matte Kudesai by King Crimson

    Now this was the show that I have been waiting over 7 months for!!! Great picks, clips and excellent stories, Gentlemen!!! What a treat it was to hear about your tremendous connection through music and that you will be able to start jamming with one another again thanks to the wonders of technology!! I will write back later with a list of my ten current favourite tracks of the day. A list for all time would undoubtedly leave me in a catatonic state from which there would probably be no form of agreeable return!!! Keep on rockin' in the free world indeed!

    As promised only minutes ago(!), here are a list of ten tunes that are currently rocking my world, in no particular order: 1. "Acropolis Now" (Joe Jackson) 2.. "Vienna" (Billy Joel) 3. "If I Was" (Midge Ure) 4. "Love's Crashing Waves" (Difford & Tilbrook) 5. "Since You've Been Gone (The Outfield) 6. "I Feel Like a Bullet (in the Gun of Robert Ford)" (Elton John) 7. "Nothing To Lose" (U.K.) 8."Ripples" (Genesis) 9. "Don't Answer Me" (Alan Parsons Project) 10. "Tempus Fugit" (Yes) Sorry about the lack of any female artists or anything funky, but lately I've been in a singer-songwriter/progressive rock frame of mind!!

    Such a fun episode! Here's my list, which I wrote after pausing the episode when you guys only listed one song each. So it's a happy coincidence that my list includes one song from each of yours. Of course, some of these could change depending on the day and the mood, like you both said. 1. Shine On You Crazy Diamond - Pink Floyd 2. All In Time - Umphrey's McGee 3. Time - Pink Floyd 4. Wife Soup - Umphrey's McGee 5. Another One Bites the Dust - Queen 6. Happiness Is A Warm Gun - The Beatles 7. Paranoid Android - Radiohead 8. Dreams - Fleetwood Mac 9. Help On The Way / Slipknot - Grateful Dead 10. El Mañana - Gorillaz Honorable mentions: Let's Dance - David Bowie; Shining Star - EWF; Move On Up - Curtis Mayfield I know I cheated by including honorable mentions. Please forgive me. I had to make sure my love for funk & dancing was properly represented.
