Is touring broken?

Is touring actually broken or is it all messed up because of Ticketmaster? If Ticketmaster was no longer a thing, would touring be fixed?

“It’s over. The old days are gone,” Young declared in a message posted to his Neil Young Archives website. “I get letters blaming me for $3,000.00 tickets for a benefit I am doing. That money does not go to me or the benefit. Artists have to worry about ripped off fans blaming them for Ticketmaster add-ons and scalpers.”

Per news broke of the Roe v. Wade reversal in 2022, Squier had what he called a "Neil Young moment" and knew he had to take action.

In a bad mood? Listen to these songs

I'll admit it, I'm in a sour mood a lot. I don't love that I am but, what can ya do?

Well.... as research has it, I could just listen to these songs:

"Good Vibrations" by The Beach Boys
"I Got You (I Feel Good)" by James Brown
"House of Fun" by Madness
"Get the Party Started" by Pink
"Uptown Girl" by Billy Joel
"Sun Is Shining" by Bob Marley
"I Get Around" by The Beach Boys
"YMCA" by Village People
"Waterloo" by ABBA
"September" by Earth, Wind & Fire

If you're looking to get in a better mood, better press play on The Beach Boys classic "Good Vibrations."

That's according to Dr. Michael Bonshor, a music psychologist named, who says "Good Vibrations" tops his list of songs that make people happiest. He says, "Previous studies have found songs are perceived as happy if they are in a major key, with a sweet spot of approximately 137 beats per minute. We like '7th chords' as they add interest; regular chords use three notes, whereas '7th chords' add an extra note which provides a sense of musical 'tension' and 'relief.'" Also, the Beach Boys song's "verse-chorus-verse-chorus structure" is appealing to our ears. In a survey conducted by the psychologist, respondents said it takes just 14 seconds for the mood-boosting power of these songs to take effect.

In case you were wondering, a 2020 poll of the happiest songs of all time dubbed Electric Light Orchestra's "Mr. Blue Sky" the happiest song ever.

So just hit play on those songs to get yourself in a better mood if you feel yourself feeling cranky. It's worth a shot.
