LOL, That reminds me of the time I took my then 8 year old nephew to a Neil Diamond concert (I have gone to seven over the years) and we were standing up and singing along to "Forever in Blue Jeans" which, is a very cheery song for me even though I don't wear blue jeans.

Anyway, my nephew tugs at my clothes for my attention and when I lean down to hear him over the loud music, he says "I have a friend named Gregory". I figure he is getting bored and say "that's nice!". Well, then I hear him singing at the top of his lungs "I'd much rather be Gregory Blue Jeans"!!!! I must admit that's how I sing it every time I hear it!

Another Neil fan! Cool.
We went and saw him a few days after 9-11. He opened with COMING TO AMERICA. The whole back of the stage was covered with this HUGE flag... I think we were all feeling kind of guilty for being there having a good time when so many others were suffering and also scared to be in such a large crowd... BUT, when he walked on stage and started to sing...
The entire place rerutpted in cheers and tears. It was a mixture of relief and joy and PRIDE. It's a feeling that I'll never have again and one that I'll NEVER forget.

I have a brand new happy song!
All Summer Long, Kid Rock.
I could listen to it over and over..... like when I was 14 or so, Def Leppard had my happy song, Pour Some Sugar on Me..... I recorded it on a tape to play over and over about 20 times...
Until my brother got sick of it and ripped it apart. :(

I'm not much into music - I sometimes sing childrens songs or read my favourite psalm - psalm 121.

I will have to look up that Kid Rock song, don't think I have it.

My mix tape had Pour Some Sugar on Me, Unskinny Bop, Shes Got the Look, and Cherry Pie... over and over LOL.

Power ballads were cool, but what is more upbeat than Unskinny Bop?? Great beat and makes absolutely no sense!! LOL.

Anyone remember "Rock me Amadeus"?? LOL.
