Music Saves The Day

I'm having one of those mornings where only Mozart can make it better. The brain is a little crispy. It's rainy and dreary in D.C. I started off with some Beatles, thinking that's always a good standby when you need something to make you feel better. But the neurons are so sensitive, it was just too loud. So I quickly switched to Mozart's Requiem and felt the heavenly tones of his greatest work wash over me.

I shared as much with Bob, who immediately produced the one song he can always count on to make him feel better:

Of course, it's really Bach.

How about you? What's the one artist or piece of music you can count on to change the day?
