"We Gotta Get Out of This Place" is one of my favorite songs by The Animals. I also like "Don't Bring Me Down" a lot. Of course, both of these songs apply to your upcoming move! Good luck!

Nothing has ever motivated more to flee a scene than "We Gotta Get Out of This Place." I hear it ... I'm looking for the door. The story of my life, in fact.

Fitting for someone in the midst of a move.....

I love these posts related to your move. Moving is good and bad, of course. Exciting for what is to come, but such a pain in some ways.

It's been said that moving is one of life's more traumatic experiences because you see your life being packed up in boxes. After a number of big moves (including one cross-country), I firmly hope I never have to move again. Good luck with your move--your new abode looks wonderful.

Oh, I love this song!! And it is exactly right as you're getting ready to move.

Moving can be traumatic, especially when there are books involved. After being married six years we moved across the street, but it was from the third floor walkup of one brownstone (plus stoop!) to the third floor walkup of another (bigger) brownstone. I took most of a month packing up boxes and moving them myself, but then we didn't have that much then.

When we moved here ten years later (28 years ago!) it was another story but - thankfuly - it was not too painful.

Good luck.

If you need inspiration on moving day, try <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vhblDyGtRNs>this</a>.

In 1976 we were traveling through Europe and stayed - inadvertently - next door to a disco in Rimini on the Adriatic coast of Italy, where this was playing all night.

Believe me, it is impossible to sleep with the walls shaking from the bass line.

I'm with Deb. I hate moving. Especially packing (and unpacking) 30,00 books!
