Cheesy Song of the Day, December 11:
‘Memory Chest’ Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell
I apologize — I have missed some cheesy songs selections. They are selected — I’ve just been busy with work stuff to do the posting. I promise to post them all before 2012 comes to a definitive close. I heard today’s Cheesy Song on a Classic R&B radio channel and my gut is saying I heard it at the right time. Pause for a moment of hardcore bloggus narcissisus.
As I was reviewing the events and song selections of the past 11 months, I started to feel that my subconscious self (?) selected songs that provided a safe, distancing buffer for how emotionally devastated I was (and in some ways) still am. A cushion for my heart. Dianne Reeves ‘Company’ comes to mind. I selected it in February at a particularly low point, but I listened to it today and it’s meaning for me became a little bit clearer.
I’ve been carrying a lot of fear that was dressed up to look like cosy comfortable company. Now that I know the fear is the fear, what do I do? Especially if it’s not so eager to jump into the memory chest?
What’s YOUR Cheesy Song of the Day?
