I've been waiting 6 years to hear this record. I found it in my sister's things the day she died; it was one we played and made up dances to during a phase that I can certainly say was one of the best times of my life, for her having been there through it with me.
I recently bought a portable #recordplayer and it arrived on the anniversary of the last day I saw her alive. I broke it out today and finally got to hear music that I haven't heard in 30 years. I didn't recognize some of it at first, but when it hit this song I promptly burst into tears and started singing along. .
Music is so powerful.
#Music is so healing.
I could see us dancing around and singing along like it was in the now. .
I'm #grateful to have lived with her joyful heart in my life. I'm grateful to have the chance to be reminded of it so viscerally. .
The lyrics too. Seriously. It's goofy, but accurate. And she would be going totally #nostalgic#80skid along with me right now!
