My Song: 2 Shots

I could never declare one song as my "favorite," but it seems like there's one song that I repeatedly turn to on Grooveshark after a long day at the office.

Matt Dusk, "Two shots of happy, One shot of sad"

For those of you who don't know Dusk, he's a card-carrying member of the neo-jazz singer club (a la Michael Buble) only he hasn't quite cashed in on the bubble gum fame that Buble is currently enjoying which gives Dusk, in my opinion, a slightly more real sound. In a nutshell, I believe him more.

I first came across this song in 2004. It was the theme song for a reality show called "The Casino" which, in my opinion, was tragically underrated and short-lived. This was back in the glory days of Reality Television when ideas were still new and the mirror we hold up to society hadn't shatterd. This was the prime days of Survivor, Fear Factor, The Mole etc.

Over the years, it's become my go-to song for melancholy. And more and more frequently, I seem to need it at the end of the day.

Check it out, and feel free to disregard the video. I actually watched it for the first time while writing this post and in typical Vegas Lounge Singer style it has it's fair share of scantily-clad women.
