Today--a few songs to listen to.
I can't remember how I came across this, but I've enjoyed listening to the songs on this site, particularly Shiny Shoes. "Don't let the art of dying get you down, because death is here to stay."
Another site I just stumbled upon some time ago. There are several songs you can download there. My favorite: Low Low Thing.
This is what I'm listening to as I write this. If you're not familiar with soukous (a type of music from Africa) and other types of African music, I recommend this as a nice introduction. Right now Ndima by Bell'a Njoh is playing. How could one listen to this and not like it? Music that makes you want to move and celebrate.
Another band I like to listen to from time to time.
