I love music. I think I know what the soundtrack to my life would contain, but I am sure there are some hidden musical surprises in there that I wouldn’t have expected to pop up. And as new music continues to be made and produced the soundtrack to my life continues to evolve.
A few weeks ago, I was sitting on the couch, with the window open, the breeze blowing in and wafting the curtains around, while I sat busy working away on my macbook. I would occasionally look up when people walked by, just taking them in as they chit-chatted or watched their kids charge ahead of them on their bikes with colored streamers flying from the handles.
Our cottage is on a side street, so we are quite used to people cutting through with their music blaring, but this one particular evening a black Range Rover pulled up across the street and a very tough looking guy jumped out. He was bald, both of his arms were full tattoo sleeves of Maori design and he was extremely buff, as his biceps were bulging out from his shirt sleeve. He looked like someone you wouldn’t want to get on the wrong side of. But appearances can be deceiving and I don’t judge a book by its cover!
His windows were rolled down and as he waited in line at the ATM he bobbed his head to the next track that was beginning to blare out of his stereo. Now, I would never have put him down for it, but this guy was “Old School”. He bobbed and weaved his head to The Stylistics. This must be his theme tune, because last night, he just so happened to pull up again, with them blaring out of his speakers and this exact same song playing. Now, I’m an “Old School” girl, so it made me smile, you just can’t beat some good old beach tunes on a Summer afternoon!
So, here’s to Mondays and Summer and a good soundtrack/theme song to your life!
