Post Idol: House
After American Idol, and before I go back to work, I watch House. Not only was it an exceptional show this week--tense, dramatic, tragic--but it closed with one of my favorite songs: Grant Lee Buffalo’s “Happiness” from the exceptional album, Mighty Joe Moon.
Never mind the words that came
Out of my mouth
When all that I could feel was pain.
The difference in the two of us
Comes down to the way
You rise over things I just put down,
And let them bring you happiness.
One of the world’s perfect songs, and a great fit for House. It’s also one of the tiny pleasures in life to hear an obscure song revived like that. I recommend both the show and the album.
