So Underrated...

but so good!

and yeah, I am feeling nostalgic...this song came out in '70, when I was a mere wisp of a 6 year old, and hearing it brings back such awesome memories of my sisters and a fab childhood and such..
but it's not a sad nostalgia. Nope, it's a good one.
Enjoy, and pull up more of their stuff- she had one AMAZINGLY BEAUTIFUL voice. Such a damn, damn shame that she could never see just how special, meaningful,talented and truly loved she was.

How Provocative!!

Maybe it's just me,and my less than innocent mind, but...

hell, just watch this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8273rlq1BEI and tell me the first thing that comes to mind when the band spells out the initials to the chorus.
Oh, and yes, it is one of my fave songs by them, along with Love Cats and Let's Go to Bed.

"I lost your honesty, you lost the life in you"
"where does the end of me, become the start of you"- from Change by Tears for Fears

Listening to 25 or 6 to 4 by Chicago reminds me of being between the ages of six and eight; don't ask why, it just does. And yes, I love early Chicago- the jams are fabdabulous.

Fall and the sounds of blue jays screeching remind me of my childhood, also, especially of Dyer School, my elementary school.

In my twenties, I didn't appreciate my good skin and line-less face; I thought I was forever young and impervious to nature's inevitable ways. In my thirties, I was too busy raising young-uns to notice much of anything. Now , as I am resting anxiously(in a good way) in my mid-forties, I am so much appreciating my still blond(though gray laiden) long thick hair, my still good , laugh-line tinged good complexion and my much loved but still sometimes surprising self confidence. I am 44, and totally loving it! No 24 year old has ANYTHING on me!
