The other day, a friend sent me a link to a music video on YouTube.
I was a little high, with a couple of beers to take the edge off of the pot anxiety. So, I clicked on the link and was blown away.
I downloaded 55 of this guy's songs and have been playing them in my car. When in a less enhanced frame of mind, not all of the songs hit me the same way as they did the other night.
So, after my guest left this morning, Happy New Year, I heard this musical routine going around my head. I KNEW it was Harry Manx, but had no idea what it was called, or where to find it.
Since I had downloaded about fifty-five of his songs, as a last ditch effort, I decided to play through them in the hopes of finding the ONE that was tickling my mind.
Don't you just love it when a song or a riff grabs hold of a part of your brain, and starts playing over and over? It's been with me since I was at least four years old.
So this thing was playing in my mind. I went to the directory where I stored all of the Harry Manx downloads, and clicked on "play all."
My plan was to listen to the first 20 or 30 seconds, and if it wasn't the song I was listening to, I would fast-forward to the next song.
As luck would have it, it was the fourth song. It took less than 3 seconds to know I had hit it.
Give it a listen.
At least for four seconds.
I could have sworn the sky was blue.
