Jene over at The Original Bean is on week 8 of her musical challenge/game. The last one I did was week 6. I’m not a big player. Like a cheap turntable I skip. The topic this time is a song that no one would expect you to love.
For someone to expect anything about you they need to know you or think they know you. The song selection for this was really easy because our daughter gave me the answer the other day and I never even asked the question. I’ll explain.
I do much of my music listening in the car. I’ll never understand talk radio. Today with digital music, CD burners and CD players there is no reason you can’t be listening to the best tunes as you cruise. I go back far enough to recall trying to sing along to an eight-track but couldn’t because I was too busy cussing at it (also I can’t sing). Making your own CD mixes is car listening heaven.
So the other day, my daughter hops in the car as we head off for whatever. She typically has an opinion of my musical tastes and I understand. Music is personal. Not too many miles down the road she starts laughing. What’s so funny? She could not believe I had “Hey Now (Girls Just Want to Have Fun)” in my mix.
Well we had 4 daughters and this song reminds me when two of them hit their teens. Also, it is a fun song.
