Happy thoughts

jjdebenedictis has had a wonderful idea: to post a song from your childhood that makes you happy. Hers is here. I immediately thought of this song:


Meanwhile, some friends who met in the blogosphere in 2008 are posting voice posts from that time, or new ones in honour of that time.


I know I've missed some, so please comment and I'll add you to the list.

From my (slightly more recent) childhood... I grew up on a mixture of jazz and prog rock...

You may wish to skin up (for old time's sake) as you enjoy a little bit of Focus...

Richard, that sounds oddly familiar but I'm not sure I actually recognise it. I was eighteen in 72, and that was the year I went off to France as au pair. I maybe just wasn't around!

Nice, upbeat music.

Miriam said...

Not only do I remember that, but I remember playing it on the piano. I might post my choice later.

fairyhedgehog said...

Miriam, I'm impressed you could play it on the piano! I'll look forward to seeing your choice. I'm so glad Jen thought of this!

Old Kitty said...

:-) Take care

Miriam said...

I didn't play it all that well!
I have posted my choice on my blog.

fairyhedgehog said...

Kitty, glad you like it so much!

Miriam, I'll be right over to see what you've chosen.

fairyhedgehog said...

TWC, I'm so glad you like it! I'm not sure I know what else they did.

Off now to find a chair that won't turn down my invitation to dance...

fairyhedgehog said...

Phoenix, I must go and listen to your voice post as soon as our visitors have gone!

Richard N said...

Who needs a chair?

It's sad and funny both at once...

fairyhedgehog said...

Richard, that really is an old one! Takes me back more than a bit.

Nice song.

fairyhedgehog said...

Thanks, flutietootie. Nice name! I've popped across to your blogs and I love your photography. I'm not sure how you manage to work, take photographs and look after your sister. It must be a very busy life.
