Some People Have all the Luck

So...a friend of mine mentioned in passing this morning that her boyfriend is taking her to a concert with "some oldies" on thursday. I asked what bands she would be seeing.


HEART.

JOURNEY.

CHEAP TRICK.


Some Oldies? Are you freakin' kidding me? Cheap Trick? Journey? Heart??? HEART? Hello! Heart was the first band to make me cry to a rock song. Heart taught this cold country mouse to feel.


I would croon Alone at the top of my lungs in my car while I drove several hours to visit Matt while we were dating. Heart. completes. me.


I hear the ticking of the clock
I'm lying here the room's pitch dark
I'm wondering where you are tonight
No answer on the telephone
And the night goes by so very SLOW
Oh I hope that it wont end though
Alone


TILL NOW, I ALWAYS GOT BY ON MY OWN
I NEVER REALLY CARED UNTIL I MET YOU!


Seriously I might break out and sing it right now. I'm so jealous I think I have a greenish tinge.


She doesn't even know who they are. Oh my word. In all honesty, I hope she has a blast and calls me so I can live vicariously through her...also, I want to steal her identity for the night and go as her.


I'll be watching this for the rest of the week.
**Sniffle** Next time ladies, I WILL be there.

Back to your regularly scheduled blogging below.

  2. I know I know. I would if I could.

    I asked her to take a picture for me, since you know, Im obsessed. She said "Oh...it says no cameras"

    Ummm yeah...they arent gonna kick you out! Take the picture for me NOW.

    April maybe you and I can pose as her and her Boyfriend. I am tall and pretty flatchested, I think I can pull off looking like a boy. that way you can get your journey fix and I will get my heart fix.

  6. Oldies....um, i remember when this came out.
    that song...it gives me goosebumps and makes a tear gather in the corner of my eye. I think about my hubby and i feel all gooshy.....then i remember that he gets to sleep thru the night and I am still up 4-5 times a night w/ different kid issues. yeah..the feeling is gone...exhausted mother needing a nap.
