Ella Fitzgerald “Gets Started” with her First #PhillipsSongOfTheDay

I Can’t Get Started” by Ella Fitzgerald is on repeat now, and I don’t foresee myself taking it off.  Yes it’s a very depressing song, but it’s beautiful, and it’s the only song that seems to help today.  I just get lost in Ella Fitzgerald’s vocal work and the music playing around her.  There’s just something so soothing to just listening to this jazzy/bluesy song.

I also think it helps to be reminded that everyone falls upon a time in their lives where things should be perfect, but nothing makes sense.  Where you should be going out, starting a life with the people you love.  But, for some reason, you just can’t.

Well, that’s what I take away from the song, at any rate.
