Thanks to Danica from Living the Beautiful Life for nominating
me for the Five-Day Music challenge.
The rules are:
Post a song a day for five consecutive days.
Post what the lyrics mean to you. (Optional)
Post the name of the song and video
Nominate two (or one) different blogger each day of the challenge
For the challenge, I decided to focus on how I first became aware of music and to describe over the next five days how my taste in music broadened and changed.
I met my best friend James one August day in 1969 at Colonial Lake.
It was a hot and muggy and all the fish in the lake died.
James was lighting up Cherry Bombs and tossing them into the lake.
When I asked why, he said he was ‘blowin’ up’ the fish’.
I laughed and asked where he got his black eye.
He said he got in a fight that morning at school and decide to cut out.
I told him I almost got shot the night before ‘cause I really did.
“You almost got shot!” I could see I had his respect. “What did you do?”
“Scream.” I answered. Then we laughed an’ blew up some more fish and
became best friends.
James and I ran with Charleston’s hippies.
Here are some of the songs we played:
The Who – I Can See For Miles
Tomorrow Never Knows – The Beatles
Cream – Strange Brew
The Mamas & the Papas – Look Through My Window
Donovan – Sunshine Superman
Hair – Walking In Space
