Yumi Zouma, “December”
What are you so happy about?
Whenever I see some sweet-faced kid walking down the street with a smile on his face for whoever passes by I wonder what he doesn’t know that I do. It’s easy enough to say “everything,” but some days I wonder if there isn’t just one lesson I could unlearn to make myself okay again, one memory I could forget so that I could smile at everyone without thinking about things too much. It should, theoretically, be possible. I mean, I was once a sweet-faced kid myself. None of us start out this way. We learn by living through it. You’d think we could undo it. Anyway, this new single by Yumi Zouma is terrific, and it will make you smile all the way through. Enjoy.
