This is another edition of Friday Dance Party on Acorns On Glen….live concert edition. Before we dance, let’s give thanks for another week. We are here, we are breathing and we are finally approaching Spring. If you are flexible enough, give yourself a hug or pat yourself on the back. We made it through another one, and now….let’s dance.
If you are a regular reader of the blog, you know this has been somewhat of a hard and strange week for me. I’m not really in the mood to dance hard. I just want to do a little sway back and forth and enjoy some slow music. An earlier post I made this week was a sadder one than usual for Acorns On Glen and in it I mentioned my high school trip to French Canada in 1979. After writing that and thinking about my trip to French Canada, I remembered that before, during and after the trip I had listened (over and over and over again) to Gino Vanelli’s “I Just Want To Stop”. Remember the first line? “When I think about those nights in Montreal, I get the sweetest thoughts of you and me”. You know, Montreal>>French Canada. You get the picture. The song reminds me of a great trip and a trip that was the first time I traveled without my parents and the first time I left the U.S. (remember, my troubles started when I returned home!). I worked hard for some live concert footage of Gino and found this from a concert video from 1979. Sorry, I’m not sure what the angry part is all about at the beginning.
So, chalk up another week. Get ready to sway back and forth. I’ll be imagining I’m one of Gino’s backup singers that you see in the video. Feel free to shake it if you want to do it. I don’t care. You deserve to dance to this song in any way you like. I’ll be listening to this a lot over the weekend and trying to pick my hair out to get Gino’s stylish long afro in place on my own head. Thanks for sharing another great week here with me on Acorns On Glen. Are you enjoying your time here with us and do you have any feedback for us to make this site even better?
Friday night came home from working soooo tired. Sat down and read your “Friday Dance Party” as usual. I was tired so didn’t know whether I should hit the play arrow on the video. I had never heard of this guy. What a surprise. The guy can sing and he gave me the energy to stay up an hour longer. So didn’t dance much Friday night but I will be ready to go on Saturday. Thanks for the article.
Thanks for the comment Carolkin. As a friend of mine always says, “Shake it. Don’t break it. Took your mama nine months to bake it.” Dance all weekend with Gino Vanelli. We are here on Glen Road. Come back and visit soon.
