I love music. Listening to certain songs can change my mood so easily…lifting it when it needs to be lifted. Do you have songs that immediately lift your mood? I have a playlist on my computer at work that makes me smile. It makes me just giggle when I listen to it. Amongst the many songs in this playlist, there is one that I love. It can lift my mood at any time. It makes me smile. Sweet Carolina. I love that song. I loved it when I was younger and I love it still to this day. Well, there is another song that makes me smile when I hear it. When I am having a rough day, I choose these two songs to listen and my mood immediately brightens.
As I was working on a less than fun project at work, I clicked on this particular playlist to brighten my mood. I was singing (in my mind) to Sweet Carolina (occasionally out loud…not intentionally). Then, the next song started to play…I was singing it when I realized that the song was not about ice cream or a treat in the afternoon, it was about something else. Oh my goodness…I have been listening to this song for years and never ever realized what the words meant. I was mortified. It has a catchy tune and I loved the lyrics but…let’s just say it isn’t about ice cream.
Of course, I didn’t keep my new found knowledge to myself. I blurted it out…thinking that maybe someone else thought it was about ice cream. Um…they didn’t.
Let’s just say that I did make my friends smile and laugh.
Note to self: Listen to the words of the song BEFORE it becomes one of your favorites.
Have a happy day!
