Saturday Musical Mood Swing Blogging - "Mote" & Prelude 23-5

Whatever it might suggest -- I'm honestly not sure -- Sonic Youth's "Mote" captures my mood today better than anything else I've encountered:



Here is a high-quality live performance of the song from 2007 -- though I suspect those who listen for lyrics might quibble with the "high-quality" characterization. Then again, those who listen for lyrics likely have limited interest in Sonic Youth in the first place.

Related or not, here's a moody performance of a Rachmaninoff's moody Prelude Opus 23 #5.
