Okay, so you may or may not know but is has been raining cats and dogs on the East Coast all week. It is so bad I stepped in a poodle today (be careful with that joke, its an antique!). Coming from somewhere where the sun shines 300 days a year to this has been really hard, even if it is not normal.

So ,what do you do when you are down and you want to get up? You listen to blues of course. So here are three songs to get your blues turned upside down.

We kick it off with BB King kickin’ it in a blues guitar solo:

Next up the rockin’ Chuck Berry from a 1979 BBC special showing that he knows the blues:

And we’ll wrap it up with Eric Clapton and the Groaning Blues!

Now I can’t say exactly why listening to others sing about their troubles lifts you up, but I can say that if you listen to all three of these you will feel better about whatever ails you.

What is on your minds tonight Firedogs? The floor is yours.
