This season, we’re going to try out a new series of posts called “Farm Score”. In these posts, we’ll identify a common farm task and try to decide which song provides the best accompaniment.
In times of frustration or exhaustion, a good song can push you through even the most unsavory of tasks. Landon and I spent much of last weekend shoveling manure, and despite our best efforts, never managed to find a song to make it more fun.
When it came time to spread the bedding, however, just the right tune came on the radio: “Burning Down the House” by the Talking Heads.
As I was throwing hay all over the barn floor, I felt like some sort of arsonist for justice setting the stage for an epic blaze. (I’m not sure what an “arsonist for justice” is, but I imagine it’s the good kind of arsonist.)
If you have some suggestions for our farm soundtrack, let us know in the comments below. We’ll put them to the test.
