A kid asked who French President Nikolas Sarkozy was married to b/c she looked “super hot.”
I answered with former supermodel Carla Bruni.
Then I told him she’s a phenomenal singer
With a magnificent voice.
I’m pretty sure the group of guys who were sitting near me
Took away my man card.
I have a way of outgaying a lot of my gay friends.

It’s intriguing how music can be a timeline through our lives. We listen to certain artists and songs during specific times as we age. Then, as we grow, our tastes change on multiple occasions.
However, what we don’t realize until later is when we stumble across older music of ours, the old memories and feelings can come flooding right back. Thoughts that haven’t passed through in what seems like eons. Possibly the admiration for an old beau, the bitterness towards a tragic event, or the elation we felt when spending time with old friends during our younger years.
It has a way of putting things in perspective. We can learn from these previous experiences, and utilize them to our advantage. Other times it’s just a nice way to reminisce on the good times, and put out the bad ones. A reminder that life isn’t all bad but rather enjoyable, in fact.
