Song of the Day: The Sundays, “Joy”

The haunting track that ends Reading, Writing, and Arithmetic (1990). Melodious, introspective. I drifted off to sleep more than one night in high school to this album. The Sundays were the band I kept my radio tuned to the old Edge for, when I first discovered that music could define a moment in time. It was like I found out something new about the universe. I hadn’t, of course, but for an awkward 14 year old, making the transition from junior high to high school, The Sundays were the band that helped me define that transition, helped me shape my musical leanings for the next twenty+plus years.
