A Song From Your Childhood
Music has been a constant in my life from the very beginning. Concerts, too, entered my life early on. The first? Irene Cara.
You’ll remember her for movie themes: Fame. Flashdance. You likely know those two songs well enough to sing along a few lines. Especially when drunk at a bar.
For me, though, this song is incredibly personal. It was the song that I remember dancing to as a small child at a concert. I remember years of playing the vinyl, of hearing each word speak to my heart. A part of me feels like a singer-dancer trapped in a scarcely capable vocalist/dancer’s body. Music invigorates me in a way nothing can. It picks me up on a bad day, and it fuels my joy on the good ones.
What a feeling, indeed…
