Sunday Musings: 50 Years, really?
Wowie Zowie. I am taking a trip down memory lane. I was 'there'' that night in 1964 perched on the floor in front of the Ed Sullivan Show. I remember, my parents rolling their eyes and blowing cigarette smoke with impatience for The Beatles to get off the stage. My older my brother, a Beach Boys fan, groused about The Beatles being crap.
You know they say that music is the history of your life? Well, Beatles' music was my sound track.
Every word, to every song is popping out of my mouth.
I'm doing that crazy head-bob thing (although I think Keith Urban has me beat on range of motion).
I'm still enamored with Paul and wondering who that (young) woman sitting next to him is.
Ringo is being quite the showman.
The Ed Sullivan theatre is filled with happy, joyful, jammin' people. There is nothing on earth quite like experiencing a live concert. The audience (a who's who in music) is smiling, clapping, and fist pumping to the music. Their eyes are catch someone's and they give that "can you believe this!" look.
The Beatles was the sound track to their lives, too. The lucky folks in the audience know they are witnessing a piece of musical history.
How lucky am I to have grown up (and old) with the greatest band in the world?
What music was the sound track of your life?
