Relaxation Rocks

It's a holiday weekend and relaxing has been in full swing, with a trip upstate to quiet NY towns on the Hudson.

Many of the towns had little hints of nostalgia peppered throughout their streets. Likewise, the tunes flowing from my iPod/Pandora stations seemed to track back into my memory and drag out some songs associated with specific periods of my past. 

One such track - still getting plenty of intentional play these days due to its insidious hooks - is this one from Chicago's finest gloomy punks:

MP3: Alkaline Trio - Private Eye (via Insound)
Taken from the 2001 album From Here to Infirmary

Buy it at Insound!

Private Eye sends me right back to uni days, shared passion for music and the moments a single riff or lyric can recall so vividly. Add to that the fact that it's a great tune to barrel around winding country roads to and you've got yourself a keeper. Good times. 

What songs take you back?
