The Blues

On Monday night, when I was a little low, I caught The Simpsons. It is the one were Lisa is sent out of class for 'feeling sad'. Late in the show she meets bluesman Bleeding Gums Murphy. She plays the Blues with him. At the end she observes that she doesn't feel any better. His response?

"The Blues isn't about feeling better, it's about making other people feel worse, and making a few bucks while you're at it."

This still makes me smile.
