Xtras and Xceptions
A Serenade of Seventies songs, from the soundtrack of my life, is my theme for the A-Z challenge this year.
A lot of my musical taste and wisdom in the seventies came from my father. We spent many a car ride together entertaining ourselves, and each other, with song. It is not very often that we get to go back and relive childhood memories, and sometimes when we try we are disappointed. I got lucky. I only had to ask my father once to agree to making a singing video. Then last week, I actually managed to have my camera ready and cornered him before we got out of his car. This video starts with our discussion over what songs we had on our lists of favorites from our seventies road trip concerts.
Please excuse the editing I did. The camera started beeping at me at one point and I panicked as my father had just embarked on a story about a dance contest he took part in. I got things back on track though. Oh, maybe excuse the singing voice as well? So, um, this is me and my dad...
I was not disappointed in the least!
