"Natural Blues"

"Natural Blues" by Moby

 

Oh Lordy, trouble so hard
Don't nobody know my troubles but God
Don't nobody know my troubles but God

Thus goes the thumping refrain of Moby's "Natural Blues," the beat-heavy electro-sample of the old negro spiritual "Trouble So Hard."

While learning how to live again, the unexpected, weekly terrors of seizures and the nightmare of epilepsy spontaneously combusted with the bisected blindness, Wonderland syndrome, and residual head pains of my craniotomy. The pain and fear of it all left me in tears on many days. Don't nobody know my troubles but God, indeed.
