Sing Theresa Says by Greg Laswell

Greg Laswell's Sing Theresa Says is one of my all-time favorite songs. I discovered it a few years ago on a Paste Music Sampler CD. If I recall rightly, he wrote it shortly after his divorce and how his Grandmother Theresa encouraged him to "sing happy things". I love the line, "I can hear the june bugs approaching, a god damn army of them in my brain." I think I resonate with this line when I teeter on the edge of making room for or entertaining an unhealthy thought. The video is great too...dreamy and circus like. Anyway...enjoy.
