Music Makes You Healthy!

A couple loose ends for Friday:

This video is pretty cool. Thanks to Mike L. for the email. It is a composite audio/video of where additional tracks were laid in by different singers and musicians (mostly street musicians) from different places around the world. http://vimeo.com/moogaloop.swf?clip_id=2539741

Saw this article on CNN Health: http://www.cnn.com/2009/HEALTH/05/11/music.heart/index.html?imw=Y&iref=mpstoryemail. Researchers have proven that music actually makes you healthier. And listening to a variety of songs and music makes you healthier still. Perhaps someone can tell that to corporate radio programmers who insist on playing the same 300 classic rock songs for the last 20 years or radio that plays the "hits" 30 times a week. Maybe we can get the state legislature to do something about it in the interest of public health?

Have a great weekend! Hopefully the rain will hold off for the Rusted Root concert tonight.
