Sometimes I Just Gotta Sing Like A Fool...All Over My Apartment!!

Okay, I admit, all the birthday love I am feeling from my family and friends today has filled me with so much joy I feel like singing! Course I have been traveling down memory lane thanks to youtube, listening to songs of my youth, singing along like I often do in my living room giving a sold out performance to Rusty. Even though he is staring at me as if I am about to have a stroke, I continue!

What is it about songs from your childhood that strike a chord like nothing else can? Music has been out of my life for a while but made a major comeback since I returned to acting. It fills me up and sets me right.

Here are a few songs that take me back to the good times or inspires me even now to keep moving forward when times are tough.

  1. Kevin, I love singing to myself, and spend a big chunk of each day doing it. I find it puts a lilt in my step and joy in my heart.

  2. Oh man, you know about music for sure. You brought me back a few years and put me in that old mood. Great music never dies nor does the memories!

  3. True true. Great music has a funny way of attaching itself to memories, making both better for it!

  4. Kevin, a belated Happy Birthday to you! Made me smile reading how you go to youtube traveling down memory lane for songs from your youth...I do that too, and sing out loud even by myself lol! Wonderful song choices here. It was especially moving remembering Whitney and Luther. Patti LaBelle, always fabulous. “That’s What Friends Are For,” one of my favorites and I love that arrangement with Dionne Warwick and friends. Musical memories are marvelous for uplifting one’s spirit!
