Ever grieved your own behavior?  Ever been at a momentous point in your life and made the wrong decision - like, knowingly?  I used to do shit like that - it was awful.  Not only do you pay in the end but you get to hate yourself in the process - awesome!

This week's track lives in relationship space - it makes the list 'cos love is ultimately responsible for grief - you can't feel grief over something if you didn't love it - at least a little.  And here we have a track that's all about the wrong relationship - talk about setting out on the wrong foot.

Let me tell you about a little situation
It’s been testing my patience, man
She was keeping me up all night
’Cause you only get so far reading faces
We were off to the races
And I thought to myself, “Hold tight”
You see there was just this one complication
She was already taken
And what was so wrong felt so right
She said, “No need to be looking over your shoulder
When you could just come over
And we could work this out just fine
— Bob Moses - Tearing Me Up

So yeah - what do you do?  Succumb to the intoxicating urge or run away with your sanity intact.

If you've ever been burned in love - this one's for you - and actually - if you've been the one lighting the flames - it's for you too!

About the Curator - Andrew McCluskey

The first visual memory I have is that of the white upright piano in Singapore, Hell and the dark forces lived at the bottom, Heaven and the Angels at the top. They would play battles through my fingers and I was hooked.

After my dad died I was very sad - I couldn't play for a while and when I did, the music that came out reflected my grieving state.  I wrote an album of solo piano music called Music to Grieve to - from which the idea of the Music to community originated.
