This week the theme is songs featured in films that made the charts (please make sure you reference the movie).
I’ve had a busy series of Sundays but found time today to join Jim’s prompt and it was one that called out to me. This song is one of my all-time favorites! The beat makes me want to dance just like the little groundhog in the video. LOL But most importantly, those lyrics speak to me and for me. It’s my ‘go to’ feel good choice all around. I consider it my own personal theme song. 😉
I had the pleasure of seeing Loggins and Messina in the gymnasium at Williams College in the very early 70s. You’ll never guess who else played that night. The immortal Jim Croce!
Of course, Caddyshack is an iconic American comedy that I can watch over and over and still laugh like I’m seeing it for the first time. [Disclaimer: The vomiting scene is my only complaint. (I can’t stomach it. 😉 ) Knowing when it’s about to happen, I usually take a bathroom break at that time. LOL] Darn it. I feel the need to add a philosophical afterthought. It occurred to me that I don’t have to approve of or enjoy, a whole movie to appreciate my own perceived special parts. I do that with people too. IMHO- that’s the most inclusive and tolerant attitude. Happy Sunday!
I'm nobody! who are you? Are you nobody too, then there's a pair of us. Don't tell! they'd advertise you know. How dreary-to be somebody. How public-like a frog. To tell one's name-the livelong June, to an admiring bog. Poem by Emily Dickinson.
