So Debra (the dear) gave me this award. It won't keep me warm at night, or make love to me, but it lets me wax rhapsodic (see what I did there?) about music.
1 - What does music mean to you?
EVERY FUCKING THING! It soothes me, it provided me an escape in the abusive home where I grew up. It has been with me thru miserable high school/college years, marriages, divorce, cancer surgery, job changes, house moves, unemployment stints, gym workouts, car rides, love, grief, house chores, and menopause. It gives me on-the-job stress relief. It is background noise when I am knitting. It can lull me to sleep on a Saturday afternoon. Without music, my life would have no meaning.
2 - What's your first music-related memory?
My maternal grandmother playing "Theme From A Summer Place" on her turntable. The year was 1960.
3 - What was the first album you purchased yourself?
"Rubber Soul" - Beatles; I still have the album. A selection from that album:
4 - What's the latest music you purchased?
"Ella Fitzgerald's Greatest Hits". Mark turned me on to her music. FABULOUS!
5 - What's the last song you listened to? (be honest)
Vince Guaraldi's "Cast Your Fate to the Wind".
