Songs to get to know me

Let me introduce to you me via songs I like or have some meaning to me. I saw this on http:// http://www.plinky.com/prompts/1698/answers/new
I am going to try and do this, rather than all in one post, by daily posts of a song each day until I feel I’ve described myself. I will include video or lyrics in each post and tell why the song is”me”. This just sounded random and fun. Plus, what a great way to get to know the new woman I have become as well introducing past loves, relationships, family,
If you want leave me song in comments about you. Its fun to do things different once in a while. Don’t you think?

Watch “Queen – ‘Fat Bottomed Girls’ (Live At The Bowl)” on YouTube

This song makes me enjoy my outer beauty as well as my inner beauty. I celebrate my curves with this song! I always dance when I hear it. Plus, in general I like Queen and other hit songs they did when I was a teen!
So, here’s to my curves!

Daily prompt/ celebrate good times

http:// http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2013/09/25/daily-prompt-celebration/

I may not be quiet on topic of following the description of” show us good times, celebrating good news.” Because, when I read the topic my mind went to a song and the story of three children dancing to the song Celebration by Kool and the Gang.

There were three of us. Me, Rhonda, and Trav. We were being raised by single mothers trying very hard to keep food in our bellies and our Christmas trees full of presents.
We had a lot of time together our mothers are best friends. When we were kids we would get on our bikes and go to the store and come out with a bag of candy a piece all for 25 cents! Our bikes took us everywhere.  Even places we dreamed up. We all named our bikes. These bikes were Christmas gifts from Santa! Trav and I knew our mom’s were Santa. Poor Rhonda,the baby of us three, believed forever in Santa. Until some idiot blew it. But, that’s a story for another day. We also created secret hideouts all the time. One was called bird haven, if I recall correctly.  We were as close as we could be. Waking up each day going on new adventures and worrying only about how we were going to get our next quarter for the trip to the corner market.  The three marketeers we were indeed!
So, when that wonderful song came out we would dance with unabandedness to it while a disco light shined.  Yes, we three were the king and queens of our world! I have no doubt to this day if I needed them or they needed me we each would try our hardest to be there.
So, when I saw the daily prompt this song and many years of fun memories flooded back to me. I have had much to celebrate in my life like my three beautiful sons and now a grandbaby. But, today for this moment I went with a time when life was simpler for me and I had two bffs, a brother and sister, cousins, whatever we called one another when asked. Thanks for the travel back in time. It’s funny where these daily prompts can take you.
