I retaught myself a song from my childhood….
I can now sing you the books of the Old Testament. If you’d like to request a special performance, just drop me a comment below.
What I find most amazing is that I remembered half of the song, but the part with all the major and minor prophets had me a bit tongue tied.
As a kid, you can remember anything if it’s in a song. My little brothers and sisters can sing you the entire timeline of world history!
I guess this shouldn’t be surprising because the only reason I know the multiplication tables is Ms. Eiser’s 3rd grade math class. She had 45s (that’s a type of record btw) of math songs.
Today’s post is short–finals start tomorrow–but I have a fun question for us to talk about:
What songs do you remember from childhood (from school or church) that you can still sing today?
I watched American Idol tonight for the first time in about 5-6 years.
Most of the people auditioning were teenagers around 15-18.
They were good, though, I am shocked that their parents are allowing them to be thrust into the public eye at such an early age.
No pile of money is retribution enough for the microscope of celebrity status.
Of course, American Idol is a wonderful way to get discovered as well.
Maybe I should call this post “The Pros and Cons of American Idol”….
Let me ask some questions that I hope do a better job at explaining why I’m not sure how I feel about the whole thing:
- What motivates someone to seek out the spotlight?
- Can nationwide approval truly offer validation?
- Is he or she prepared to pay the high cost of fame?
There’s a possibility that I am overthinking, but these are the questions that came to my mind as I watched the show.
Today, I found myself singing “My Heart Will Go On” because sometimes a girl needs to dream.
Maybe my star crossed lover is waiting on the next sinking cruise liner.
The problem, though, is I never remember the words.
And then enters YouTube! A lyrically confused girl’s best friend.
The music video is a gem.
A floating bride?
A sophisticated recorder player?
A weird bald guy staring at the moon?
I just can’t take this seriously….
My sides are still hurting…..
Plus, you get to sing along with Celine–and wonder why there are two random men staring at the moon.
I watched the music video with three thoughts in mind:
- This one music video explains the numerous emotions of a teenaged girl.
- Why didn’t I take playing the recorder more seriously?
- That moon is so big! Where’s a wolf when you need him?
The audience was enthralled while I was dying from laughter.
My hairbrush went back into the drawer (we’ll sing another day, my friend) because you can’t sing while hyperventilating.
If you need a good laugh, please watch this video.
