A Pop-Musical Tonic

The day after my break-up, a colleague who lives in a faraway place shared a link with me. He referred to it is a “pop-musical tonic’ – his girlfriend’s favorite song – and sent his best wishes along with it.

I clicked on the link, broke into an ear-to-ear grin, and listened to the song at least a dozen times back to back. Now Ingrid Michaelson is my new favorite artist – I bought the entire album – and I will forever think of this as the quintessential break-up song.

All you need is love? Sometimes all you need is a song.
