That was just too much fun for an old lady ...

I just got done adding music to my blog
I have to thank
She was sharing blog secrets
I always wanted YOUR SONG by ELTON JOHN
To be playing
And, now I do
Plus a few other songs too
I went to High School in the early 70's
Yes, I'm an old lady now but Man did I have fun
And, I went to college & joined a sorority
Line Danced to the Doobie Brothers
Listened to Billy Joel tell me I was ok
Just the Way I was
Which I needed to hear after my
Major college love broke my heart
Brandy made me feel like it was ok that
the guy I liked didn't like me
cause I could go on ... just like she did
Oh, and Janis ... come on ...
 who doesn't love her song
And, Carol sang to my soul
Friends ...  That's what I had
After the said boy ... and he was
I see that now
Anyway, they got me through
Joe told me the same thing
I just heard him yesterday
So, when I figured out how to do this
I had to add him
I have to tell you .. I am a Rock & Roll Gal
Mr. Boatman was in a band when I met him
I had no idea he was a Nerdy Guy
Getting his Masters Degree
I just knew that he played guitar
In a Rock & Roll band
(no they didn't play much longer but
it sure was fun on weekends)
I'm sure I'll change these around
A Bit with time but my favorite song
The one that I fell in love with in
Junior High & again in college is
Your Song by Elton John
Damn Life Is Good ...

I forgot to mention WAR.

It was the Summer between 7th & 8th grade. My friend, Patti & I were waiting for her Mom to come out of the store.

War came on the radio. We sang & danced to it like teenage girls do.

It was Summer ... we were cool ... it was a fabulous time. So, I had to put that on the list. I also just heard 'it' while driving.

I'm just an old Rock & Roll Gal ...

(not to worry .. I wasn't really cool ... just thought I was for a moment or two)

What a fantabulastic post!!! Mom's a H~U~G~E fan of The Doors. She thinks Jim Morrison is yummy (is she a secret cannibal? We don't know...) Plus, her and our Dad's wedding song was Thank You by Led Zeppelin. They even had a Halloween wedding!!! Yeah, our folks are kooky!

Isn't is fun how we identify certain music with events in our lives. I look back and see songs woven thru the fabric of my days.

I know and love all those songs too (I graduated high school in 1976)....from one oldie but goodie to another ;)

Oh man, I related to every one of those songs! I keep telling my daughter, how would be a Dead Head if they were still alive, that the Doobie Brothers were one of the best of the best. High school in the 70's rocked!

I LOVE all the songs you have talked about. I'm a rock n roll gal right there with you.

Me too, me too. I so relate music to where I was and who I was with at that time. I love all the music you've talked about so far, love me some Elton, some Billy Joel, really love me some James Taylor! I've always been a music kind of gal.

There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all of the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for those who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living.
