Sunday Songs

Alliteration is fun, isn't it? In the past I have told you that I associate most people in my life with songs. I even shared some (I think). Sometimes the songs referred to aspects of my relationship with the person, how I felt about them, how they felt about me, actual incidents. Sometimes the song would reflect the feeling I got when I thought about that person and had no correlation to my actual relationship to them.

Only once did anyone ever say that a song reminded them of me. A gentleman I knew quite well remarked "I didn't know you knew Billy Joel".  When I asked why he thought that (and it wasn't totally unreasonable at that point in my life), the gentleman said "Because he just wrote a song about you". And as fate would have it the next song that came up on the radio was that song.  I didn't know whether to be flattered or insulted.

Several days later I related that conversation to another gentleman I knew and asked him his opinion. He looked at me, nodded his head and said, thoughtfully "Yes, from what I know about you, I think that's a pretty good description of you."

Oh my! I thought.

Now I suppose you want to know what the song is...
