Dawn is a Feeling, by The Moody Blues

This was so obvious I almost didn’t use it. But, I love this song, this whole album.

Breakfast in America, by Supertramp

I’ve never really been too sure what this song is all about, modern art is so inaccessible.

Come the Day, by Holly Golightly

This song says it all, with an attitude. If I had to pick one song that explains life today this would be it.



The Last Thing I Needed The First Thing This Morning, by Willie Nelson

The truest declaration of love I have ever heard.

I’m Your Dirty Mexican, by the Krayolas

I added this one, because I like it, a lot, and I think people need to wake the hell up!  (Excuse my outburst.)



Tim Clark lives in Columbus, OH. He is an employee, a husband, a  father and a blogger. You can see his blog here, Life Explained. He writes occasionally and with pride for Street Speech, a local homeless advocacy newspaper. He is contributor for The Ugly Writers and the Good Men Project. He is particularly vain about his monthly column on The Wild Word. He is working on a novel.


At The Wild Word we are proud to present some of the best online writing around, as well as being a platform for new and emerging writers and artists.

If you have read the work in The Wild Word and like what we do, please put something in our tip jar.
