Yikes, talk about leaving this for the last minute! I didn’t forget my youngest sister’s birthday today. Never that. Rather, I’ve been involved in a clinical trial for a newish drug and it went awry over the past couple of days. Eugh. Nothing ventured, nothing gained, however, so I don’t regret giving it a go. It has been working wonders for others in a similar position, but it’s just not for me. Que sera sera. Fortunately, I’ve started to feel human again over the past couple of hours, so I can still get this done on the right day. Barely!
It has become something of a habit to honour special people on special days with a song. Which is the most natural thing in the world, considering how I and pretty much everyone on the family and friends list feel about music. Thus, keeping with tradition, it’s only fitting to honour Cathy with a “special to her” song. We all had our musician crushes as teens, but I doubt that any of the rest of us were as ga ga over anyone as Cathy was over Corey Hart. She was 15 when this song came out and I’m guessing that she might very well have seen him on his tour to promote this particular album. Of course she eventually grew up and acquired some taste, as we all do, ahem, but whenever I hear this dude’s name or a few notes of a song, I instantly think of my wild and crazy teenaged baby sister.
So, this one’s for you, Cathy, and I hope that you enjoy the memories. Just kidding about the acquiring taste bit, by the way. He was, and still is, a cutie. Hope you’ve been spoiled rotten today by your guy and my three lovely young nieces. Lots of love to you from all of us here!!
