Two Oldies, But Goodies, From Gilbert O’Sullivan
I just LOVE these two songs!
Both songs remind me of very good things in my life.
Get Down, about a dog, is so about my needy cat Derick — oh how I love him so! So bad, but such a sweetie.
“Get Down” is one of those songs you have to play at least THREE times in a row!
And “Clair,” I used to baby sit a little girl named Claire, who made such a big impact on my life. She was an old soul in a little girl’s body, so wise beyond her years. I had so much fun with her until her family moved away.
A few years later, Dennis and I went to visit her. She was 13 at the time. Growing up and such a pretty little lady. Now Claire is in college. I dropped her an email about a year ago and told her how much she inspired me. (One of her favorite games was pretending we were old ladies complaining about the price of real estate!)
For a short or long time, you just never know who will touch your life! (And what songs will remind you of them!)
Note: on one of the You Tube songs, someone wrote that Gilbert O’Sullivan reminds them of Paul McCartney. I have to agree!
