[30 Day Song Challenge] Day 29: A Song From My Childhood
I’m not sure why, of all of the songs that I remember for being a wee lad, that I immediate picked “Lady” by Kenny Rogers. I could have picked “Gimme Gimme Gimme (A Man After Midnight)” by ABBA (because I was so gay, even when I was in 2nd grade) or “Bohemian Rhapsody” by Queen (again: gay) or “Elvira” by The Oak Ridge Boys (weird, right?). But “Lady” reminds me of the AM radio in our Malibu station wagon, of the stereo in the living room, of the copy of Kenny Rogers’ Greatest Hits that I got on vinyl for Christmas when I was something like six years old. Also, it’s just a beautiful song, as intense Lionel Richie songs sung by Kenny Rogers are wont to be, and Kenny’s voice is… so damn sexy. Like he was back then. Woof.
