A denial, a denial, a denial
In our last week at the Byrant Park Project, we're using music to move through the stages of grief as defined by Dr. Elizabeth Kubler Ross.
Today, I took the first one, denial, for which I played Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit." It's a song that seems to be maybe just a mess of feelings until the very end, when Kurt Cobain sings, "a denial, a denial, a denial."
Now, as I'm listening to people around me prepping for their segments, I'm struck by how many songs could fit the bill. I think someone suggested "Walking on Sunshine" as an alternate for denial. Let's make a playlist. The stages are denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance. Hit the comments, please.
