You all know I love music. I mean, I give in to my corny, campy side and post song lyrics here about once a week.
Truth is, I’m into music without lyrics too. It’s just kind of hard to post those kind of songs. (ya think?)
A few days ago, I heard an indigenous song with a rhythm that touched me so much, I stopped what I was doing and got goosebumps.
This morning, it dawned on me that one of my former employees told me about a native love song that made her cry everytime she heard it and I was pretty certain it was the song that stopped me in my tracks a few days ago. I called the radio station and asked the morning DJ if she knew which song it was (after describing it to her). She said, she would play a few of the songs back to back and if she played the one I was talking about, I should call her.
She played that very song on the first try. I called her quickly and told her she was right. “Oh my God, I love this song…it makes me cry…” she said. The very words I’d heard a few months ago.
Then I hung up with her and finished listening. I came home and downloaded the song from iTunes and what do you know? My first moment listening to it completely, I teared up too. I still have goosebumps.
It’s called “Darling Don’t Cry” by Buffy Sainte-Marie and the Red Bull singers.
I don’t even know the lyrics but the beat is so uplifting it takes my breath away. Maybe you’ll feel differently, who knows? But give it a listen. If you’re into that sort of thing.
