I can't believe I'm thinking of doing this.
I already went this route with Bailey.
I think we bandied back and forth our knowledge of the lyrics to songs from Finian's Rainbow and Paint Your Wagon. Did we do the Sound of Music too? I don't remember.
What I DO remember is what a hoot it was.
The old show tunes are songs that stick with you and in various times in your life, you find yourself humming them. They drag you back into a point in your life that usually is pleasant. Most music is equated with positive things .... if your old EX was a jerk - the break up song was still positive - you escaped with your pride intact, right?
I cannot relate because the only guy I was actually ever serious about and who had the power to affect me is the guy I married. So, music for me is all good.
Everyone has music for the themes in their life:
Music to drive by -
music by Hair is good, Austin Powers *gg*, The old TV themes are great too , Magnum PI comes to mind, Starsky and Hutch, Hawaii 5-O , SWAT, Mod Squad - man those bring back memories, .
Sound of Music, Paint your Wagon, The King and I, Meet me in St. Louis, Wizard of Oz, Xanadu, Oklahoma
Thoroughly Modern Millie, Finian's Rainbow, Singing in the Rain, Wizard of Oz
So, along the lines of music being a fun thing in your life, I thought of doing a crazy thing.
