Falling

It’s October 20, 2010 and there is no sign of fall in my future. No pretty leaves. No soup.  No Russian Tea.  This makes me a little sad. It’s hot here. We are still running the A/C every day.  We didn’t unpack our winter clothes.  What’s a girl to do?

This girl is going to turn the music up loud and dance ’til I fall over.

It’s true.  When I am blue, the music is loud over here.  Okay, when I am happy, the music is loud over here. I dance and sing and dance some more. I love it. The boys shake their heads at me at first, but soon enough, they get the fever. We are American Bandstand. We are the Soul Train.  We are Solid Gold.  It’s downright awesome.

I have favorite, go-to tunes in my Ipod. I am not going to tell you what they are. You would have to be here and dancing with me to know these secrets….I will tell you I have a fondness for 80’s music.  Fondness is putting it lightly.  And when I say 80’s music, it’s not just one sound, either. I think you’d be surprised.  However, that is not the only playlist I have programmed.  I happen to believe I have eclectic musical taste.  Maybe I just think that makes me sound smarter or cooler or sophisticated.  But it’s still true.  Last week, it was Italian opera.  I sing tenor so it works for me. I also like to think I am cultured at the same time. Not cultured like yogurt – but hip and fabulous cultured.  I threw in Italian phrases all day. I wish I had known what I was saying.

So today, as I brave the elements (okay, just the one – sun) and go out to the HEB to buy the things my guys will need while I am out of town, I will crank up my tunes. I will wear my headphones IN the store.  You might even hear me singing on aisle 7…I’ll be smiling.  And wearing short sleeves. And as soon as I think you are not looking, I’ll dance.

But tell me, what’s YOUR “go-to” song?

    Girl,
    I was just thinking the other day how happy my music makes me!
    I just made a new playlist with some old Paul Simon songs, including You can Call me Al. I love me some Billy Joel, and sing his songs at the top of my lungs while picking up all the messes around here…love Men at Work,
    the Go Gos, to name a few more…
    And I am wearing short sleeves. (sigh) … not cool here, either.
