All I wanna do is have some fun

As I hurried out of the apartment this morning I randomly grabbed a copy of "The very best of Sheryl Crow" to listen to on my way to work.

I popped in the CD and as the first song began to play a rush of happy emotions twirled through me.... I think its safe to assume that a few people in the traffic got to hear my stunning (Ok, maybe a bit out of tune) singing voice this morning *grins*.

While I happily bobbed my head and sang "all I wanna do" at the top of my lungs, I realised just how long it had been since i had last heard Sheryl. It had definitely been way too long....

often I find that listening to an old favourite song, that you haven’t heard in a while, can be just like reconnecting with a long lost friend. It brings up lots of memories and gets you smiling.

Whats one of your favourite old songs that always gets you singing?

  3. Sheryl Crow is a distant relative of mine! Our great-grandmothers are sisters. I got to meet her once, she is really cool!

    Any song that was popular during my high school years does it for me. Totally takes me back.

  8. "I've Seen All Good People" by YES (I'm sure I've embarrassed myself, singing this in my car) and "Tainted Love" by Soft Cell. My cousin and I used to rock out to that one while on the road.

  10. Oddly enough, since I no longer commute to work, I rarely listen to music while driving. So I am not that into listening to catchy tunes these days. I am more into Ambient and Techno these days while working in the garage. However one tune I can't get out of my head recently is a video recently posted on my blog. It is isn't because of the visusal....it really is a catchy tune. Check out "You've Got My Love".

  11. I recently did a similar thing with one of my old Saves The Day CDs. :) I love revisiting. I find myself relistening to the same CDs again and again.

    Mine's a little silly, but no matter what the song "I Can't Help Myself" always brings a smile to my face. You know the old Four Tops song... sugar pie honey bunch. I'm smiling just typing those four little words. :D
