I Feel Stressed Out
Various people from all over the world, helping you to feel a little less stressed out. One song at a time. Think of this as a kind of curated, one-trick pony.

One morning in late December, I was in the kitchen talking with my wife and found myself getting a little worked up. I'm not sure what we were talking about, and I'm sure it was something stupid and trivial.

Next thing I knew my wife, in an attempt to counteract my stress, began singing a few lines from "Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da" by the Beatles.

On hearing this song, my stress disappeared. It just pretty much knocked me out of my funk, and I got happy - almost instantly.

Later that morning, I found myself searching YouTube for covers of the song (remembering a great cover that was posted to MeFi many years ago). One hour and one silly idea later, I was purchasing this domain name and working on building the site.

I sifted through oh so very many versions of this song. At the end of my searching, I had a small list of videos that fit the bill: covers of the song that I felt would genuinely make someone feel a little less stressed out, should they visit.

And for those who aren't fans of the song... I made sure to add in a little something, even for the haters. Because stress isn't good for anyone.
