Oh please, don’t laugh.
Yes, I know some of you are pretty smiling right now.
I am having a LSS. You know, that moment when you wake up from a short afternoon nap and your head is full of a lovely melody and you begin to sing along. I have no option but to open my PC and search for this song. YouTube is a little helpful when you feel nostalgic with the old days. Those dreams you had three decades ago, when you were just learning that falling in love was a wonderful feeling but it was full of pain. I was seventeen.
Now I know you’re laughing.
I borrowed Josef’s headset and searched for the song Only Friends. Why can’t I remember who sang it? Back when I was still new to blogging, I made a blog post about last song syndrome.
I found this site with plenty of uploaded Lettermen songs, old favorites like Traces, Morning Girl, Dedicated To The One I Love, This Guy’s In Love With You ( I love the version of Burt Bacharach though) and of course Only Friends. I know listening to them now seems a bit silly but the music is more soothing compared to the noise I hear nowadays. And do you know, here in my corner of the world, Sundays are dedicated to the oldies and the senior citizens or what you call in their heyday, the baby boomers. You will always find FM and AM bands playing the songs of the 60’s and the 70’s all day long. You wonder, those were the days, those days you were growing up and all you had was a single turntable and your 45. Those were the days too when you used to write on small Hello Kitty notebooks with a Hello Kitty pen.
Drift endlessly and in the wind
your face I see
smile gently as you turn to pass
But the love that I once had for you
Is gone so is the meaning too
I guess it never really had a chance
