Mundane Monday Morning Music: Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes – (I’ve Had) The Time of Life
Humid and hot days a re making way for slightly cooler ones in my neck of the woods. The subtle changing of the season is also making it harder for me to want to venture out of my bed, as it is cozy and warm, whereas my home is now cold.
Thank goodness to fellow Ottawa blogger, Louise Hayes (@Louise_Hayes) and her blog Baby Gates Down for her post “Once Upon A Time in Song” that has inspired my MMMM pick this morning. My favourite feature on her blog is “Musical A-Z.” For me, it is a musical appreciation feature where she finds songs to fit the theme of the post and the letter of the alphabet. This can be a tall feat, and I love what she does with it. The song in this post that got me going was “Overload” from the Dirty Dancing soundtrack. This song got me to listen to this soundtrack with my kids and crank the volume up so I could introduce more music to them, as well as to give them more insight into what I listened to when I was younger.
Out of all of the fab tracks on the Dirty Dancing soundtrack, the one that is probably known as the Dirty Dancing song, as well as my MMMM pick today is “(I’ve Had) The Time of Life.” Readers, this song is it for me! It allows me to be nostalgic about the movie this song is from and about great times I have had while staying in the present, singing and dancing to the song. This is probably one of my all-time favourite picks on this weekly feature, as it’s one of my all-time favourite songs.
I hope that “(I’ve Had) The Time of Life” gets you thinking about the good times you’ve had this summer and every other time while getting you into your “happy place” on this mundane Monday morning!
Until my next post, Readers!
