My wife suffers from Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). So, for the most part from autumn to spring she yearns for sunny days. I would guess that John Denver, or one of the co-writers of Sunshine On My Shoulders also suffered with SAD. I put together a short playlist that gives a shoutout to the sun. Having said that, they aren’t all happy songs. Not all depression can be cured by the sun.
As part of my new mixtapes project, I have asked select friends to curate playlists for me. This mixtape is specially curated for us by Norm. He quickly became a true friend and confidant 7 years ago when I correctly recognised a floppy disk for what it was. Since then, he has seen me through all my ups and downs through perfectly timed memes, several postcards, lessons on the American presidency, and music, music, music. When not spreading positivity by sharing his song of the day on Twitter, you can find him blogging at Classical Gasbag.
