So I am writing this because of Lyndsey she wrote something about Karen Carpenter and it made me play their songs in youtube. 🙂
“Yesterday Once More” by The Carpenters is my song growing up. The song is about someone telling her story that there are songs that can take her back to her younger years and can make her both happy and sad. It is just so ironic that the song that can make me feel that way is this song – “Yesterday Once More”. It is like a song within a song, I don’t know if you really understand me. It is hard to explain with my second language. :)lol
Karen Carpenter died 3 years before I was born, and I have no idea why this is my song growing up. This is the song I am listening to while I’m playing with my headless barbies, yes they are like transformers. My barbies were like transformers. This song reminds me of my two favorite barbies, one English and one American. You know why? Once is from my Aunt that lives in London and one from my Aunt here in America. In the Philippines way back then, barbies are very expensive. They are gifts to me, their hair magically grow longer when I brush them, and their heads sometimes fell off. I know they are hand me down, but I love them so much. Just like this song, I love it sooo much.
My childhood has long gone, but thank you to this song for giving me a glimpse of those warm nostalgic memories. If only we can go back in time. If only we can get to see THEM again. They are all gone together with those lost time, together with our childhood. tata for now! 🙂
Please share your childhood songs if you have any! 🙂
