Melodic Monday Music -- Nickel Creek

A lot of bloggers do a Friday music thingy. I'm doing mine on Mondays -- a boost to get you through the working week (or at least a dreary Monday.)

Two men and a woman walk into a music store. No, that's not the beginning of a joke. It's the beginning of this cool video for "Smoothie Song" from Nickel Creek. Robert Trujillo of Metallica and Suicidal Tendencies fame joins in on the stand-up bass...

No lyrics this time. The song doesn't have any. Instead, a bonus video. This is from a documentary called "Bluegrass Journey." "Old Cold Coffee on the Dashboard" starts around the 1:40 (or the -5:10) mark.

Okay, now Chris Thile is just showing off. The incredibly sexy Sara Watkins and her brother Shawn are giving it hell too.

If this doesn't get you through a crappy Monday, nothing will.
