When I think back to the 90s, the first rave I recall, someone did this kick ass remix of Donna Summer's I Feel Love. Disco made techno. Sheer freaking genius with a glow stick, I tell ya.
Well, that song has stuck with me over the years. I mean, I remember hearing it growing up too, the disco version - hopefully I'm not increasing my wrinkles by writing that, but there it is. The rave version has always stood out in my mind, though, and it totally conjures that whole clubbing scene in my mind - flashing laser lights, neon colors glowing in the dark, bodies jumping to pulsing music so loud you feel it thumping in your body, and then there's the whole optical kaleidoscope screen flickering behind the silhouette of the dj table.
Anyway, you know how sometimes you can be in the midst of doing something and hear a little thread of song in your thoughts? It pops in totally out of the blue? Well, that was it for me today - I Feel Love by Donna Summer. Out of the blue. I'm driving home from errands, Mini's sacked out in the car seat, and it's bright, bright, bright out. Everything's rich and green. Wisteria is blooming along the route home, and wow.... that summertime, everything's relaxed and breezy vibe hit me. Not too shabby.
With all the stress I've been under lately, it was fun to sit back and reflect for a while. If nothing else it made me realize I'm definitely "summer" mode.
Too often I'm so busy trying to think about where I'm trying to go in the future I kind of lose sight of all the fun, cheesy things out there. Like revamped disco *snork* and body glitter. OMG. Body glitter! The stuff you wash off, but keep finding in patches days and days and days after you thought you scrubbed it all off. But I digress....
Summertime. I'm there. I'm ready. Bring it on! Oldest has exactly 5 half days left of school. I guess the teachers and school staff have summer fever too. They took the last week of school and decided to let everyone out at noon until the 16th - which is their final day.
Kind of a rambling post, but you'll forgive me right? Because it's Friday? Right? *crickets*
Happy week, everyone! ^_^
