Song, you woke me up

Recent bombardment of work left me tired and double visioned. Try as I might to concentrate, my attention started to drift, my eyelids felt increasingly heavy, and my fingers froze on keyboard. So to wake myself up, short of slapping myself in the face every few minutes, I resorted to listening to some of my favorite oldies while I read through thousands of pages of technical materials.

Song, why are you so sad?
