Sunday Morning Coming Down (Sunday AM Punk Rock Gospel)

Some sad-sacks say this song is depressing but not me.   I think it’s breath-takingly beautiful.   A feeling doesn’t have to be “happy” to be worth something.  A Sunday doesn’t have to be “joyous” to be well, a SUNDAY.   I think this song — this “sad” song — is very life-affirming, very human, and very very AUSTIN.   It’s everything I’ve come to know and love about my life here in this stony Texas town…. Saturday nights spent with people I adore & music that moves me, drunken 6th street hugs as we all disperse after a great show.    Maybe in the morning you will feel achey or godless or lonely but that’s OK b/c you are an Austin punk-rock darling who loved Saturday too much and now Sunday is giving you the cold shoulder.   Have a smoke, eat an egg, enjoy being alive.   Make amends with Sunday.<BR><BR>See you next week for another installation of Punk Rock Gospel Blog… now go pick a handful of yer neighbors posies and see how easily Sunday forgives
