30 Day Music Meme, Day 2

Day 2: A song that helps you clear your head:

A New Career In A New Town - David Bowie, from his 1977 album Low, one of my all-time favourites. The fan-made video shows footage of the German WWII advance; for no particular reason that I can think of except perhaps that the album was the first of three to be recorded in Berlin at the time of the Cold War.

I chose this one because it's an instrumental. Although I can't point to any particular experience in this matter, I suppose that when one is trying to clear one's head, it would help if one can't be distracted from one's purpose by an accidental and involuntary listen to any lyrics.

Forgot to mention:

This Extracorporeal ShockWave Treatment I'm receiving actually seems to work! Only three weeks in and already the pain in my arm is much reduced. Not only that, but my ultrasound yesterday showed a definite lessening of the extent of the inflammation!

Even though I pushed for my doctor to refer me for this treatment, I must admit I was a little sceptical of it. I couldn't see how soundwaves could do anything to heal the tendon, and although I still don't understand how it works exactly, I can't quibble with the results: no longer do I lie awake at night biting my lip because my arm hurts, and during the day I can actually lift a carton of milk again! Not fully without pain yet, but I'm sure that day won't be too far away now.
