Posts Tagged ‘I Hope You Dance’

Today I’ve added two song lyrics to my Poems page.  I’ve also updated six more of the ones already on the page to include the YouTube videos.
The additions are: “Lydia – The Tattooed Lady” and “People Got To Be Free“.  The performances are by Groucho Marx, and The Young Rascals, respectively.
Both of these songs are songs which just popped into my head when I woke up and stuck there for the rest of the day.  Both are from my earlier years – the first (“Lydia“) before I understood the “implications” of being a female in the circus and “tattooed”.  While humorously presented, it has a quite serious side.
The second song is from one of my all time favorite groups as an early youth: “The Young Rascals“, later shortened to just “The Rascals“.  These guys had a string of hits, and this is one of my favorites.  I’m sure there will be more to come…
My favorite lines are:
Ask me my opinion,
My opinion will be
It’s a natural situation
For a man to be free
The six updates are:
I Am A Rock
Like A Rock
I Hope You Dance
She’s Gone
Like A Rolling Stone
I’m A Believer
If you don’t know these songs or haven’t read the lyrics lately, you owe it to yourself to check them out.  Then you can drop down to the bottom of the page to enjoy the performance.
As always, read the lyrics, enjoy the performances, then go support these artists or the artists of your choice.  Participate in supporting the Arts locally!  Keep Art alive in your community!

Another thing I’ve always loved to do is dance!
It’s joy incarnate.  It’s hope.  It’s play.  When you can feel the music IN you and you’re finally realize that no one really is watching you OR cares how you do it – it is completely liberating.
Lee Ann Womack’s “I Hope You Dance” is a song expressing what every father wishes for their children (NOT just his daughters) and their children, too.  Enjoy reading the lyrics and then go listen to the song!
Today I was able to jog 5K with no pain!  It felt soooo good!  I was completely shattered, because I haven’t been able to go any speed or real time for almost six weeks.
If anyone reading this knows where I can buy or download a copy of “The Jericho Mile“, I’d really appreciate you letting me know.  It’s one of the best running movies ever made.  It was a made for TV movie from back in my childhood.
I’m hanging (inverting) again and it seems to be helping.
