In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Mix Tape.”
Ah… the memories I have and the songs that stir them!
As a child:
I Love a Rainy Night… Eddie Rabbit. I love storms and remember watching lightening with my dad.
Turn Around.. unknown artist… Dad sang this song about a young girl growing up and it was MY song.
Girls Just Wanna Have Fun- Cyndi Lauper. Religious upbringing and overprotective dad made me feel like I was missing out.
Sweet Dreams are made of this- Eurythmics. Dreams have always been a big part of my life, nightmares. and meanings.
Holiday- Scorpions. Met hubby…. he introduced me to heavier music.
Always Somewhere… Scorpian… when I left for home after meeting hubby. while we were dating
Stand by Me…. the song on the radio when I left home.. Mom and Dad weren’t happy but they stood by me leaving
Papa don’t Preach- my friends were getting pregnant outside of wedlock.
Longer Than- Walked down the aisle to the song at my wedding.
Daddy’s Hands- The Judds It sums up everything about my dad and tears me up. He passed in 1994.
Waady- unknown artist The first bellydance song I performed on stage with a group.
Slow and Easy- Whitesnake.. just a sexy driving beat song.
Take this Job and Shove it- I’ve hated some of my jobs, this is appropriate.
Heaven’s on Fire- Kiss…. Sexy… first rock concert I attended.
Dream On- Aerosmith… because I dream of hitting it big as a writer.
The Dance- Robert Mirabal just because I love native american music, culture… everything.
