My brother just posted 5 essential albums on his blog. I was pleased to see Lee Hazlewood had a spot. This is a picture of Stuart A. Staples, the living expression of Lee's sad side. He sings sad songs to make us happy, because human beings really enjoy sadness.

Couldn't have put it better myself. I know I'm happier when I'm sad. And sometimes I find myself getting sad when I'm happy. Lee figured it out though, didn't he?

Some of Stew's song's could be found on my '10 must have songs' lists. Aren't happy and sad together wonderful?
