Day 3 – A Song that reminds you of one or both of your parents.
This is cheating since I just talked about this the other day in the post Life In Six Songs?
I’m not going to post the jellicle cats here, because I don’t want to be guilty of murder. Instead, I’ll post another of my mother’s musical loves, Mr. Jim Croce. We listened to this a lot in the car and I recall singing along to the chorus. Way better than fucking Cats.
Moving on to dad:
“My dad loves the Peter Gunn theme and the music from the old-timey James Bond films. The James Bond films are his favorite movies. I’ve seen all of them multiple times. At one point, I borrowed his pickup truck and there was a tape with the Peter Gunn theme recorded over and over on both sides.”
Henry Mancini rules.
