There’s something I love about this song! It’s a combination of rhythm, powerful vocals and the lyrics that makes me turn the radio up when I hear it! (Yes, I still listen to almost all of my music on the radio. No iPod for me!)
I hope you enjoy David Guetta’s Titanium featuring Sia as much as I do!
In honor of Grandparent’s Day, I want to share some music from my childhood. I was young in the 1970’s and spent many weekends at one or the other of my grandparents’ houses.
When I slept over at Nana and Bampy Hilchey’s house, Saturday night TV viewing kicked off with Lawrence Welk. Since I loved to sing, and like most young girls, loved to dress up, the Lawrence Welk Show captured my young imagination.
Here’s a quick clip from the Lawrence Welk Show. Even if you never watched the Lawrence Welk Show, I’m sure you’ve heard this song…or perhaps even sung it to your child!
Thanks for joining me on my jaunt down “memory lane”! Have a great day! Don’t forget, tomorrow–Monday–is “Back to ‘Spool’ Time”. I”ll share another great project made with Stampin’ Up!’s ribbon!
Today’s music share was made fun of by some people (fireworks exploding out of her chest…), but the lyrics speak to me. I’ve always been cranky when people are bullied or overlooked or not accepted and this song is an anthem to the special gifts in all of us.
I hope this song makes you feel good! And there is NEVER a time when fireworks aren’t a good thing!
The first opera I performed in was called Gianni Schicchi by Puccini. I have very fond memories of singing throughout college…I was a student at the University of Maine at Orono. I portrayed Schicchi’s daughter, Lauretta, who is in love with Rinuccio. A feud between the two families threatens to separate the two lovers and Lauretta pleads, rather dramatically, with her father to let them get married. Lauretta’s song is called “O mio babbino caro” and is my Sunday Music Share!
(OK. Hear me out. It’s only 2 minutes and 30 seconds–and some of that is orchestra…You can handle listening to opera for 2:30! I know you can!)
Translation: Oh my dear father, I like him, he is very handsome. I want to go to Porta Rossa to buy the ring! Yes, yes, I want to go there! And if my love were in vain, I would go to Ponte Vecchio and throw myself in the Arno! I am pining and I am tormented, Oh God! I would want to die! Daddy, have mercy, have mercy! Daddy, have mercy, have mercy!
(There. That wasn’t so bad, was it? Congratulations for listening and indulging my Sunday Music Share!)
