Madness - The Rise And Fall - 1982
At their prime, Madness pops out another stellar album with their well known song Our House. I wish I had a little anecdotal story to tell about this album... but I don't. Just love listening to it.
Honestly, though, I am a little preoccupied tonight. The US Political system is in shambles, the general population is divided into two polarized camps with no middle ground. We have a side-show act as candidates for President. We have people losing their minds over a gorilla getting shot, but nothing gets said about the 60 shootings that took place in Chicago over Memorial Day weekend. And, to top it all off, a drunk guy in Cincinnati decides he want's to go into a Kroger's grocery store and strip down naked, and then take a shit on the self-checkout scanner.
You can't make this stuff up.
SO, plug in a little Madness (sic) and escape to a world of joviality.
