I have to be honest dear friends I really didn’t want to get out of bed this morning. Not because I was sad or not wanting to face the day but because it was so cosy and warm and I was saying positive affirmations and Gratitudes while I was laying there and I didn’t want to stop but when I pressed the play button and this beautiful gem started playing it was ok and I floated out of bed.
No. 1 = Louis Armstrong – Wonderful World
This is a beautiful Video to accompany the song that truly emphasises the meaning. I always loved this song because the most loving peaceful beautiful soul that I have ever met on this planet loved Louis Armstrong and played this to me as a child as well as playing his own trumpet. Unfortunately my uncle developed cancer and was taken far too early. It was my first experience of death but even in death he was gracious and he said with a smile “It’s OK kid, I get to play with Louis now”.
No. 2 = Shalamar – There it is
This song makes me feel soooooo young as I recall floating across the dance floor week after week while it was in the charts ‘Pop pickers’ and I might have had a little crush on Jeff Daniels as I watched him float across the floor on Top of The Pop’s. If you think MJ was the king of moonwalking if you have some free time have a quick search for Shalamar on YouTube ?
No. 3 = Kool & The Gang – Get Down on It
How you gonna do it with your back up against the wall? It’s a bit like life. If you don’t get your back off the wall, take a chance and dance across the floor of life and get down on it how ya gonna know what you can achieve.
Let’s all get down on it today and give life our all while still taking time to see what a wonderful world it is.
