Comfort music

On a chilly evening, it warmed me like the aural equivalent of chicken noodle soup.
I listened to "Independence Day" by the ComSat Angels while sitting in the car, waiting for the girls to finish with dance class.
I shivered as temperatures dipped on an overcast evening following a rain-soaked day.
"Independence Day" made me smile and forget the chill.
I have loved this 1980 single from the moment I first heard it -- in all likelihood on "The Quake" (KQAK 98.9), San Francisco's late modern rock pioneering radio station.
If lasagna or meatloaf serve as comfort food, then "Independence Day" serves as "comfort music" for me. It's good to know it is always there.
