2001 : 18 "I'm Alright" by Jeffrey Foucault

When I listen to this song, no matter what sort of mood I was in before I put it on, no matter what I was doing, I really am alright. It tugs at my heartstrings and calms my soul, and the line about cars with second gear never fails to make me tear up at least a little bit.

In the tent sale of my dreams
I had marked so many down from what I paid
Growing up and growing older
I thought man there ain't no profit in this game
And then my friends began to own things
And make thirty five a year
They got jobs with health insurance
They got cars with second gear
But I'm alright

April Walker
