In the US this week, we’ll celebrate with cookouts and fireworks, family and friends.
There’s something about summer that makes me feel nostalgic. When I was a kid, I didn’t worry about a thing in the summer. I ran barefoot all over the neighborhood, went on picnics, climbed trees, and played outside until well after dark.
Summer has its own soundtrack. Those oldies that bring back the good old days. I’ve often confessed that boy bands are my guilty pleasure. They just make me happy.
So when this musical moment happened this week, I was thrilled. Jimmy Fallon’s classroom instruments segments are my favorites. Add the Backstreet Boys, and I’m in heaven.
Out in the world at large, this has been a rough couple of weeks. It seems like everyone has lost their mother-loving minds. So I needed this dose of happiness. I hope you enjoy it, too.
Be sure to hugs those you love. And recognize that everyone else just wants to do the same.
Happy Saturday night!
P.S. I couldn’t resist this bonus track.
