30 Day Song Challenge, Day 7: A Song That Reminds Me of A Certain Event
This was kind of a hard one too. My wedding was the first thing that came to mind, but there's a question about that on a later day, so I saved that one. Instead, I thought back to all the dance recitals I've done since I was little and there's one song that still stands out to me today and reminds me of my days on stage.
I grew up doing jazz, tap, and ballet. I did competitions and recitals and I had a lot of fun. I miss those days. I miss dancing. One of the songs we did was Hey Big Spender by Peggy Lee. I think I was fourteen at the time. I listen to the song now and think, sheesh that song is racy for a 14-year-old! Especially since we were also lip-syncing as we danced, making it kind of a musical theatre number. I wish I had a video of it. Well, I do I think somewhere but it's VHS and I have not a clue how to convert those into actual usable DVD's. Anyway, when I listen to this song, I sing along at the top of my lungs. Warning: you might feel the urge to do it too, if you know the words. So if you feel it coming on, I would make sure you're somewhere where people won't mock you, or worse, think you're coming on to them. Just, keep that it mind.
Oh, and Happy Thanksgiving to all the Canadians out there. In an hour I'm heading to my sister-in-laws where my husband will deep fry the turkey and I'll get to drench my food with my mother-in-laws cheese sauce and hopefully there'll be some fruity pie. Yum! Then tomorrow I 'll have to go back to the real world of eating right, exercising, and catching up on my writing.
