How come that it’s always the worst lyrics that makes us sing-along? Whenever we are out travelling and start to sing along it turns out the song comes from somewhere from the back of our past, something that that would have made us ashamed. “You’re a creature of the night” I sing and you answer “Maria Magdalena”, perfectly synced with Sandra. We laugh and play it again while singing even louder. Did we ever dance to this song or is it just an afterthought of what youth could have been if we had been more playful. Maybe it is passing the time while driving, or sing-along reflects regrets of that promise of delight.

Very late to Toni’s prompt for Haibun Monday at dVerse. Have to say I don’t sing-along to music a lot.
