TBT – Originally posted as my daughter’s Song of the Day on 12/01/2009.
My teenagers often tell me that I am technologically challenged. I have to remind them that I am much better than most parents. (This may or may not be true, but it makes me feel better.)
It is sometimes hard to believe that I grew up without the computer. I still vividly remember taking Type Class in high school and – yes! – it was on a typewriter. So, I think my kids should give me a break. Yes, they are better than me at almost all things technology based, but they have grown up with it since birth. I think that makes me (and all of you not born in the 90s) pretty amazing. Just look at how far we have come in such a short period of time. I had to learn all of these things after my brain had stopped growing!
Anyway, enough about my awesomeness … there is a reason to this post. Today I am starting a new type of post for Thursdays – “TBT” or “Throw Back Thursday.” This has been popular on social media for some time with people posting old photos, but I am going to transfer that to Songs of the Day. I started posting a Song of the Day on my daughter’s Facebook page 4 years ago and we have shared a tremendous amount of music together. Starting today, on every Thursday I will post a TBT song from one of those days that begin back in October 2009. The song I selected today is a favorite of mine. It just exemplifies emotion in music.
Well, gotta run … I am learning how to Tweet today. I will catch up to those youngsters yet.
