I’m a musical gal, from my wee days taking piano and drum lessons, to my current stint in a community choir. Listening to music is what going to church is for some, so I celebrate with Sunday Song. Each week, I post a song that’s been my earworm for the week or something that reflects what’s happening in my world along with a wee story why.
Work required an errand to a location I had stopped at for work before. What I need to get / pick up is never ready, a trend that continued this particular morning.
Slightly grumpy from the thought of having to visit there again, along with having to bundle up like the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man due to winter’s bite, I walked into the location. I asked for what I wanted and, after the woman behind the desk couldn’t find it and had to go ask people (surprise, surprise!), I prepared to start sweating buckets in all my winter gear as I stood inside. (I didn’t bother to sit because it was hard enough to get out of the car in the 19 layers of clothes that kept my arms and legs from bending properly.)
I didn’t notice the music in the background through my annoyance and the office’s ineptitude. Once I was alone, though, the crescendo of the synth and the thumping bass drum beat became clear, and I heard a voice that I’ve always liked, belting out a classic tune.
I forgot about the wait that would last who knows how long. I forgot about the weight of my clothes that wouldn’t keep me from dancing and air drumming as best I could.
In that moment, there was only hair bands and guitars. A cold annoying morning improved greatly by that one guitar… And I started rockin’… ain’t never gonna stop…
(Side note: whilst looking for a video to use, I realized just how many Foreigner / Lou Gramm songs I know. Took me a nice little trip down a Foreigner YouTube wormhole.)
Sunday Song is a new series here at DaisySmileyFace.com (check out all we do here). I post a song that’s been my earworm for the week or something that reflects what’s happening in my world. (Feel free to join in by posting in the comments — thoughts about my video/what it means to you, a video you’re enjoying this week, etc.)
