Live Ledge #18: Sick of Being Sick

After a great Memorial Day weekend, I found myself feeling like shit the rest of the week. A stuffed nose, a cough that would threaten to dislodge my entire insides, and a nagging headache that all the ibuprofen in my house couldn't relieve.

My good friends on Facebook gave me tons of fantastic ideas to cure my ailment - Vicks on my feet, honey/Schnapp's cocktails (tasty!), and this silly gadget called a Neti Pot. None of these great ideas worked, though, and I finally made my way to acute care on Thursday night. The diagnosis? Bronchitis.

Despite feeling like shit, I still fulfilled my Live Ledge duties tonight, and created a show based on the theme of feeling like shit. So here's two hours of songs about headaches, illness, and medication. Listen via the iPhone/Android Ledge app, or download here.
