In a world of despair, betrayal, and terrible covers of famous songs, you need soothing.
Often, there’s no one there to do it. Sometimes, though, Google has this sweet habit of trying to do it for you.
So August 22 will be a day when, whatever bad comes to pass, you can take a moonlit stroll down a riverside, with Achille-Claude Debussy’s “Clair De Lune” as your background music.
Debussy was born 151 years ago Thursday. And, as is Google’s desire sometimes, its doodlers don’t care which birthday it is. They just believe it’s time to honor that person with a doodle.
