While we’re on the subject of instrumental pop tunes that I really like, let’s listen to “Music Box Dancer.” It was written by Canadian composer Frank Mills and it was originally released in 1974 but it didn’t become a hit until it was re-released in 1978. Two news shows used it as their theme song in the late 70’s and early 80’s.
Remember last week when I decided that the Beautiful Girl just HAD to play the recorder? Yeah, well it quickly became apparent that it wasn’t the right instrument for her. (Imagine dying geese. In heat. With adenoids.) Ah well, at 3 bucks, I could afford to let her retire with her dignity still intact.
You may also recall back in January I wrote that I own a keyboard from my own adventures in piano playing a few years back. I decided to excavate it from the back of the closet and let her try that instead. It turns out she’s a natural! She’s no Beethoven but she was able to pick out a song her very first day and she’s learned a couple more since. She plans to give her first concert this Saturday for her adoring fans. Tickets are free but guests (and Grandmas) are encouraged to leave egg and and bunny shaped candy tributes in the basket by the door.
