Recent studies show that more Americans are more unhappy about more things than they have been in more than 50 years. This could mean two things: people are actually and finally coming to their senses (we can hope); or people have been waiting for me to do a show about “happy” music. (I never said I was devoid of self-delusion, did I?)
