Easy Living

17 Apr

For the most part, prog rock makes my skin crawl.  I can make exceptions for some early stuff – namely Pink Floyd and King Crimson – but as far as the lion’s share of it goes, I run screaming.   And the later stuff makes me downright cower under the table.

But then there are the prog rock/metal songs that I just can’t help but love.  “Easy Living” by Uriah Heep is one of those.  It’s the metal part that makes me hit “repeat” again and again, probably.  Sheer fun!

Maybe I should give prog rock another shot.  Actually, maybe this is my subconscious telling me I should give Dickens another shot.  I’ve never ever liked him and I’ve always blamed his yucky serialization writing for my distaste, but maybe my warm and fuzzy feeling for Uriah Heep, the group, will transfer to Uriah Heep, the David Copperfield character.  Does it work that way?

While I’m pondering that, please download the song!  After all, it’s Sunday, the day of easy living, and “Easy Living”  will bring ease in the most energizing way.  Such yin and yang!
