This is another edition of Friday Dance Party on Acorns On Glen. It’s the time where we give thanks for another week of living. We give thanks for making it through and for being able to celebrate this fact. How do we celebrate another week of living? We dance. So take a moment and be proud of the fact that you’re here and you’ve made it to another Friday. Not only you, but your family and friends as well. So, to that end, are you alive this Friday? Have you given thanks for this?
Good, now let’s dance.
I’ve decided that life has no real rhyme or reason anymore. You can work so hard to create and plan something for yourself and then it can be over in just a few freak seconds. Think of the people who have been victim to the tornadoes of this Spring. They can devise intricate plans to accomplish things like having a large family, saving lots of money or working their way up the corporate ladder into their dream job and then go home one night and have disaster strike out of the blue that ends it all. There seems to not really be a sure-fire way to plan your entire life. There just seems to be too many variables. Is living a long and prosperous life just luck? I don’t think so. I’ve decided the one thing that you should decide to build is happiness. Happiness is the one true thing that can create a life that is fulfilling and rich. A life without regrets. I believe that if you are true to yourself and work to be happy, then you are destined to attract the same type of energy from the universe. This melding of happy energy flow manifests itself by giving you things like a great family and friends, a job that you wake up excited to go to every day and a just a sense of gratitude for being in this world. Happiness is the key to unlock all doors to success. I need to work to be more happy….then the rest will come. No rhyme or reason…just happiness. So that’s why this week’s song is ‘Barbra Streisand’ by Duck Sauce. Duck Sauce is an American-Canadian DJ duo consisting of Armand Van Helden and A-Trak. The pair aim to produce disco house tracks that will appeal to club DJs. In a recent interview, a member of the duo said there was no rhyme or reason behind their new hit. “There really is no relation or rational reason behind the lyric in the title, Barbra Streisand,” said A-Trak. “It’s just something that we thought would make people laugh….We just came up with this idea that it would be funny to say someone’s name.” Be careful. This song is habit forming. After you listen and dance to it a few times you’ll be walking around humming the melody or walking up to people and saying ‘Barbra Streisand’. People will think you are a little bit weird, but you’ll be happy and that’s what is important these days. So reward yourself for another week of living and shake it to a little Duck Sauce. You deserve it…and get happy. Are you a little disgusted with what’s going on in the world these days and what do you do to get over it?
