The Oldies

Note: This is a published post because Ciana has taken the day off to run the errands somewhere and may have attended an obligatory service. She's playing it by ear on the latter. 

Ah, how can I forget this song?

I immediately fell in love with it when I first heard it on the airwaves. When it was played the second time on the return drive from Klang, I could already sing along to it.



This song has always done its best to lift up my spirits whenever I'm down. I can imagine being under the heavy rain, turning myself around and around until I collapse on the wet floor in dizziness.



This has to be Glen Campbell's famous song.

Like so many other classics, I love this song so much that I can be found humming the tunes or singing it aloud in an off-pitch way.



The lyrics, oh, it's so meaningful.

I made the mistake of listening to it on the quiet, rainy night while following Papa Carrie on a drive around our (previous) neighborhood. The tears literally rolled down my face the moment the chorus came in.

    1. Thank you, Yum List! And if the songs are catchy, they can remain in one's head for quite a long time...
