This is another edition of Friday Dance Party on Acorns On Glen. It’s the time where we give thanks for making it through another week and for being alive and present here on Earth. How do we celebrate another week of living? We dance. So, are you alive this Friday? Are you and your family safe and sound? Take a few seconds now to be in the moment and realize what a great life you truly have. Did you give thanks for that?
Good, now let’s dance.
I’ve thought a lot about music this week and even did a post about it. As I’ve been reviewing my collection of music in all forms: 8 tracks, cassettes, vinyl, CDs and now MP3s, I’ve realized that what I was listening to at certain times in my life was really a reflection of how my life was progressing at that certain point in time. Great times seemed to attract great music and vice versa. As my post this week discussed, there were some times that I have no idea what was going on in my life given the music I was buying and listening to at the time. What was going on when I was listening to ‘Muskrat Love’? You look back at some of those old tunes and just say ‘what was I thinking?’. So that’s why it’s funny that I have this tune for us to dance to this week. Again, while the song by Ke$ha is fantastic, what is going on in this video? The dude from Dawson’s Creek, a party with unicorns and a laser fight? I’m sure I will be looking back at this video ten years from now and asking again ‘what was I thinking?’. For the time being, it is a great tune to dance to in front of your computer. Remember, you’ve made it through another week and you deserve to celebrate through dancing. So turn up those speakers and let it rip! What other strange videos do you remember watching over the years?
I can totally relate! I remember a particularly gloomy part of my life in which I listened only to the likes of Avenged Sevenfold, and Linkin Park. Now when I think about it, it makes me laugh. I can still see why I thought they were good, but I’m generally a happy person and like to listen to Paolo Nutini, Norah Jones, Jack Johnson and the likes, so you can see what a contrast that is! 🙂
Hi Inny. Thanks for the comment and welcome to Acorns on Glen. I was reading your post and jealous that your list contains Sevenfold and Norah Jones, while mine includes Sheena Easton and the Captain and Tennille. Oh well, to each their own….even though your list sounds more high brow. Come back and visit us soon.
