My sentiments are the same as Allison’s. I have "used" Dino’s music for years to make me feel better. No matter if I am mad or sad or depressed, it seems to bring me out of it….always! Maybe the fact that J expresses those feelings so eloquently is what makes us feel better. It is sort of like, well I’m not the only one who feels down. Or maybe it’s that although his songs tended to deal with loneliness, etc. (I don’t think the Fog stuff does as much), he still hangs on, he still seems hopeful in a weird way.
