Way Back Wednesday #2

Several years ago, whilst writing to a fellow blogger, the idea to share little memory snippets was born. The name “Tidbit Tuesday” was coined. I know that it is easier to connect to someone’s writing if you know a bit about their background, so in addition to my poetry and reflective posts, I have decided to share some favourite songs with you. Some of them may surprise you – I like a wide range of music, from Classical to Pop, Soul, Film Themes, and Country, just to name a few types.

Without further ado, let me go “Way-back-when” and introduce three more of my favourite songs…

  1. Blue Skies (Eva Cassidy) – While my first inclination is to mention “Fields of Gold” when I think of Eva Cassidy’s songs, I can’t go past the very first song I learnt of hers. Such a cool, snappy little song, it reminds me a little of that Disney song , Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah” for its energy and ability to make me think of a cloudless Summer’s day.
  2. Forrest Gump Feather Theme – What a story this piece tells. Even if I didn’t watch the movie, Forrest Gump, I’m sure it would have still tugged at my heart strings. I told my hubby that I would like it played at my memorial one day- it seems to capture the ups, the downs and inbetweens so beautifully, starting out so delicate and childlike, going through trials of great magnitude, reflective and solemn then, as I want my life to conclude with, a big finale followed by a quiet exit! To understand me more on this one, I will post my biographical poem with poetic licence, “The Strong Stand Firm”.
  3. Stuck on You (Eddie Lovette) – I grew up with a lot of easy listening tunes played in the car and at home. This one was so likeable, I never grew tired of it. I feel relaxed when I hear it (I would tend to have to look for a song like this now, rather than stumble across it on the radio!). I love the longevity of the relationship spoken of in the song. That undying kind of a love that comes back for more, no matter what has happened.

Well that’s it from me for now – a very quiet few weeks on the blog where I just needed to look after myself, followed by an urge to write again. It’s just gone “Pumpkin Hour” (midnight) so I really shouldn’t be staring at a computer screen. Hope to see you again for another “Way Back Wednesday”. Should you like to join me, you could have a regular post by the same name on your blog – it would be fun to share music!

I enjoy personal writing (poetry and prose), editing and reading. I want to share my writing with a new audience, dusting off some of my older poems as well as writing new material. The aim is to encourage and inspire!
