So, if you don’t know Hugh from Hugh’s Views & News, you missed out on one of the most unusual songs that I have ever heard. Every week Hugh shares a song in his feature- 51 Weeks:51 Songs From the Past. This week’s song- Mouldy Old Dough– takes the cake. The song on its own is quite original but when the visual of the video is added in- well, you need to head over to Hugh’s place to see for yourself. It’s all so ??? that I love it!
This week I am sharing a song that I sing every morning- R.E.M.’s It’s the End of the World as We Know It (and I Feel Fine). R.E.M. is an American rock band formed in 1980. It’s the End of the World as We Know It (and I Feel Fine) was released in 1987. The band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2007, their first year of eligibility and parted ways in 2011. I was surprised to find out that R.E.M. had been around that long, and especially that this song was 30 years old!
As I mentioned, I sing this song every morning. No, I’m not predicting doom and gloom- just letting Ari know that I understand her despair. One thing that was very clear when we adopted Ari was that she had gone hungry. After nearly 6 years living with us, she still acts as if every meal is her last. (She has not missed a single meal in our care, except when she was under the weather- and then it was by her choice.) BUT every morning, rain or shine, before I can even get downstairs, Ari is carrying on as if “it’s the end of the world as we know it…”
I consider it to be Ari’s Anthem. I’m sure she agrees.
