Blues Remedy: Channeling Mr. West


The passing of summer fun got you down? Can't stand all this rain? Maybe a little cold has already caught up with you. Or maybe you're just suffering from a nasty old case of the blues. Well, follow these step-by-step instructions to get back on your feet.
  1. Find your crate of 45s and dig out an old Michael Jackson record. "We've Got A Good Thing Going" (B-side to "I Wanna Be Where You Are") is recommended, but any pre-'74 MJ will do. If you don't have any Jackson, just look for a blue Motown label.

  2. Affix your 45 plug on your turntable's spindle if necessary, and switch the record speed to 33 1/3.

  3. Play the record.
With the crackling vinyl as a backdrop, sway to the leisurely tempo as a suddenly heavy-hearted Jackson delivers a surprisingly soulful ballad. Guaranteed to cure the blues every time.
