Can You Fight When “Lollipop” is Playing?
We are all accustomed to matching our music with the mood or pace we need. Going for a jog? Need to tackle a big clean-up project? Need to calm the kids down so they will eventually – hopefully – go to sleep?
Music carries the emotional load in ceremonies like graduations, birthdays, funerals, weddings, religious services, etc. – always corralling us into the intended mood. Reverence. Celebration. Sadness. Reflection.
But mismatches can happen. To prove the point – and for a few hilarious minutes – I invite you to watch an old Saturday Night Live episode with Don Cheadle. You’re welcome.
