Short Stop on the Road To Greensboro: Time Has Come Today.
I survived the 60s. I still love the music.
I woke up this morning thinking about the fact that we leave for the U.S. National Championships in 13 days and the only thing that started going through my head was the Chamber Brothers song "Time Has Come Today."
What is it about our life experiences that they seem to live in snippets of music lyrics? There are days when a song will get stuck in my head and I can't get rid of it. Someone told me to get it to stop you need to sing the lyrics to "America" from Westside Story. I tried that. Those lyrics then got stuck in what's left of my brain and a mental video of the dance number was on constant replay.
Shakespeare said, "If music be the food of love, play on." Given how many tunes are iPlaying through my gray matter these days, I must be particularly in love with stress eating.
