My husband has been busy programming all day, so that means his computer has been blaring all kinds of music from the past few decades. Nothing later than 1990 or he would not be listening to it, I promise. Normally we do not see eye to eye on music, but there were a few gems that I was rocking out to today. Don't ask me how he programs with music shaking the floors because I have to have total silence when I am thinking. Maybe that's because when I hear music, I start imagining dance steps or I picture Philippe Candeloro flashing across ice. Can't think because in my mind I am twirling.
Let's see if any of you old folks out there (or those of you young'uns who were subjected to your old folks' music while growing up) recognize these first lines from long ago. Tell me the name of the song and the artist and all my followers, all twelve of them, will think you are amazing.
1. "Are ya ready, Steve?"
2. "Ain't no big thing---to wait for the bell to ring."
3. "Sunshine came softly through my window today..."
4. "When you wish upon a star, your dream will take you very far..."
5. "Quite some time, I've been sittin' it out. Didn't take no chances. I was a prisoner of doubt."
6. "When the moon is in the seventh house and Jupiter aligns with Mars..."
7. "Almost Heaven, West Virginia..."
