I always answer back, I have no idea. All I know is I need Delilah in the mornings and at night I need my Hardcore Gangsta Rap AND overplayed Pop songs to keep me sane.
In the mornings, 97.1 WASH FM is Advil for my ears–it takes the pain of waking up too early away– and it keeps me in a chipper mood. I always jam out to love songs by Jewel, Sarah McLachlan, Abba and the BeeGees. I grew up on the BeeGees and to be able to blast: “How Deep Is Your Love” is sheer ecstasy. I love the disco lights, shrilled crooning and lyrics like:
I really need to learn
‘Cause we’re living in a world of fools
Breakin’ us down
When they all should let us be
We belong to you and me
Every time I hear this particular song from this station, I often daydream about wearing bell bottoms at a Disco club and later sharing a Zima with a John Travolta-like character ( preferably Vinny Barberino from ‘Welcome Back Kotter’).
For 2010, I really do want this song to be my new “Baby Come Back” because “Baby Come Back” has already served its initial purpose beautifully in my life thus far. However, it’s in stiff competition with my night addiction.
I need this song to navigate through congested beltways and pissed off drivers with ease. It begs me to ask the bigger question: The Bee Gees or Wu-Tang?
