I play a Facebook game called SongPop with my daughter, step-mother, and a friend. You have to guess songs and artists faster than your opponents in order to win. I’ve been appalled to discover that I don’t know as much as I thought I did about music. Even in the categories I’d have sworn I knew well.
This is all leading up to a song I thought was fairly new. However, it appears to have been released in 1988. I’m not sure how I missed – for twenty-four years, but it really struck a chord in me a few days ago…and the darned thing just won’t get out of my head now. If you pay any attention to my blog, you might remember that I used it on Wednesday, too. I am using a different video-one with pretty pictures. 🙂
Am I way off base here, or are the feelings expressed in this song the same feelings that most every adult in the world wants to feel? The newness of love? The uncertainty? The hope? The knowledge that this is the one?
Don’t we all want the fairytale? Forever? Or is it just me? I’m curious, and wondering what everyone else thinks about this. Or if you ever think about this at all. Have you ever felt like you had the happily-ever-after? If so, do you still?
