Aside from Stars (mistakenly sung “I hope you clap your hands…”) and You Make Me Feel Brand New, this song just nails it. I love it.
The song is intended for kids but it could also fit as a love song. The lyrics are just simple but what makes this far different from the stuff that we’ve been hearing for half a decade is the genius behind it- how the words are beautifully fused with the guitar and Mick Hucknall’s voice.
Writing about songs, these are the ones that should be left alone (which means that they don’t deserve a “revival”):
- For Your Babies- Simply Red
- Patience- Guns N’ Roses
- Like A Lover- Sergio Mendes & Brasil ’66
Oh, and more to come.
Anyway, I’m writing things at random. I’m just happy. My day’s perfect. One of the best days, I must say. It is almost in the same vicinity as my wedding day or the day that I got my Optimus Prime toy. This day deserves a blog.
While away for a seminar, my beautiful wife just over-groceried (a constant concern whenever I make her in-charge of this essential duty). But never mind that, what I got was meal fit for a king. Tonight, I am blissfully full. I am stuffed with chicken burgers, vegetable salad, and soon, that special fruit salad that she so diligently made. I keep on telling my wife that she is a terrific cook. She, an unassuming one, is modest when she says that she just follows the recipe book.
I was bugging her the entire week to make her special fruit salad (typing this just made me drool) and she exhaustively shopped for fresh fruits in place of the canned fruit cocktail. It’s in the ref. In two hours, I will finally take another food trip.
This great day is one where things come into clarity about my life. Though, there are things that I would want to happen to me, my job, my career, and my loved ones, I am now looking at how blessed I am. It is not contentment but more of gratitude that things are better and things are bound to be great soon.
I am storing this day as one that qualifies for a happy thought. A much-needed shot in the arm.
Thank you, Lord 🙂
