If you, like me, spent the majority of your formative years in the 50s, then you probably have a culture clash when it comes to music of the current generation. I think everyone always likes music from their time the best.
This morning I was feeling a little nostalgic and I went to Slacker and did a search for Connie Francis. Just as easy as that I was transported back to the carefree days of my youth. I am surprised that I still remember the words to most of the songs and found myself singing along
Connie Francis, Neil Sedaka, Bobby Darin, Leslie Gore, and others all entered my room and with each song came a memory of things I did back then.
Sofia came in while I was singing and as my lips would pucker to hit that perfect note in harmony with the song’s artist, she would pucker too and I swear she was enjoying the music as much as me. I need to make a note to tell Sussan to have Sofia’s hearing tested.
While I was listening, I did a Google search on “Connie Francis” to see what had happened to her. I was surprised to see that she is still performing. Here is just one of many sites that came from that search.
One of her scheduled performances will be in San Francisco on my birthday. I wonder if that is a sign that I should take a trip to San Francisco in October. I think I will go ponder that some more.
