To that end each Tuesday this blog intends to offer a song and tell you about what it triggers for me and in return you are welcome to share any memories that you have associated with it.
Do any of y'all have a tune or a stanza of music that rattles in your head and you don't have any idea where it comes from? I did ... until today. I have been singing, "My name is Squirrel ... best shaker in the world ... shake it on down ... shake it down to the ground." I had no idea where the tune or the words came from ... until today!
I'm amazed that a song I heard back in freshman year of college has been running around my mind for over 30 years! This meme caused me to google the few lyrics that I knew ... and Google led me to The Dramatics' Shake It Well (1977). I've been walking around with a goofy smile on my face ever since!
I hope other bloggers will consider participation in this weekly meme. In the meantime, I invite other villagers to share their thoughts on this song, group or my odd musical journey.
What say u?
