Monday Melody

EVERYDAY IN THE MORNING
WHEN YOU GET UP AND CRAWL OUT OF BED…

Kottke
Though known primarily for his finger-knotting acoustic guitar prowess, Leo Kottke also writes some pretty unique, memorable songs. Sung in an inviting low grumble, his tunes often possess lyrics as snaky and strange as his tunings and hopping melodic sense. Today's Monday Melody captures the faint wisps of dream speech that carry over into the first moments after the alarm clock roars. Taken from 1989's My Father's Face, Kottke greets the day with a thin grin and haunted images of Santa Claus, kids with faces like walnuts and of course, his father's face looking back him in the mirror. Wipe the sleep from your eyes, the working week is here again.
