I woke up to Sir Elton singing, “Candle in the Wind” (the original version to Marilyn).
Okay. A little sad for the first thing in the morning, but okay.
Took a shower, came back into the bedroom. The radio was playing “Piano Man”.
Got dressed, got into car, turned on engine, the radio (set on a different station) was just finishing playing “Honky Cat”.
Then they played “Daniel.”
Nothing against the song, but again, a bit sad for the mood I was in.
New station was playing “The Bitch is Back.”
Wondering if it was his birthday or something…
Got to work, worked, went to lunch.
When I turned on the car, the radio was playing “Candle in the Wind” – the newer version to Princess Di.
Switched to the oldies station. What were they playing?
“Don’t Go Breakin’ My Heart.”
Swear to God.
After a hard day of work, I got in the car to go home. Just as I merged into the traffic jam we call a freeway, the radio station announced a triple play – three songs by the same artist.
Y’all will understand why I hit “play” on a Beatles CD instead.
Oh hi. I’m back.
