Do you have a song that makes you stop whatever you’re doing, put that pen or pencil down, turn the stove off for a second (so you don’t burn what you’re cooking) or tell that person you’re on the phone with that you gotta hit them back? Does the music slowly overtake you in such a way that you can’t help but to start moving your head, your hips, and snapping your fingers?
Maaaaan! If you don’t YOU NEED TO GET ONE! I’ve got a few but one of my most favoritest (I know it ain’t a word but I’m using it!) songs in the whole wide world that literally forces me onto my feet and into my imaginary world where I’m onstage and in the groove is “There’ll Never Be” by Switch.
Lawd! I looove that song and by virtue of my love for it-it it is now an automatic head bopper for the love of my life, Ayize. What started out as my super special song has become a theme song in our house that makes us stop, look at each other and start grooving. Me..all over the floor dancing, swaying, and crooning. Hubby….sitting, head bopping, snapping, and looking (at me that is). It is our cue to connect. It is our permission to let it all hang out for a few minutes. It is (one of) our theme songs and as small as that may seem it is one of the fundamental reasons we are as close and in love as we are. Some folks may say C’mon, it’s really not that serious…..but we know better.
Stop Playing. Start pushing.
