A Doctor in the House, Disc 4

And now the exciting conclusion (though I should add that this was not the conclusion to the night. Nay, we went back to disc 3 and found the remaining liqour in the house - blueberry Smirnoff [NOT RECOMMENDED]).

I like how this turned out overall. Even knowing that you may not get to disc 4 (though we did), there's a lot of weight put on that last song. I always feel like it has to be something meaningful or at least climactic. I chose Jackie Wilson's "Higher and Higher" for two reasons. First, it was preceded by a little soul set anyway, and flowed well. Second - though it may seem cheesy, I saw it as a reappropriation of the song. While the lyrics are directly about a romantic relationship that buoys the narrator's spirit, I applied it to the relationships with my Iowa peeps, who were my friends, colleagues, motivators and support group over the last 5 years. On many occasions, they did indeed lift me "higher and higher." I told you it was cheesy, but what can I say. I'm a bit of a sap.

In closing, I give you:

I have to say, I'm impressed I remember so much of Discs 3 & 4, blueberry vodka notwithstanding.

What I can't believe is that DSMR didn't make it onto any of your earlier mixes.

Good times.

Good times indeed, but I'm willing to campaign against the very existence of blueberry vodka.

Likewise, as drunk as we were, I'm also a little surprised at how much I remember the latter discs. Listening to them a week later was what I imagine an acid flashback would be like.

Thanks for throwing down, not that I expected anything less. We should look into finding a good dance night in Chitown for NCA.
