Laughing in the Face of My Least Favorite Month (an ongoing project)

March 8th - Reason to be cheerful: Rhapsody In Blue by George Gershwin
Hands down, one of the most gorgeous pieces of music, ever.  A little bit of jazz, a touch of classical, a hint of Broadway...to me, this piece always evokes a romanticized version of Gotham at sunrise, and then slowly stretching and waking up until the entire city is in full gear and full glory.

I love Gershwin, don't listen to him nearly enough.

Yes this is beautiful, though sadly since United commandeered the music, I always think of planes when I hear Rhapsody in Blue. Another classic jazz piece that I love is Take 5.
