Fulfilling A Dream
I grew up loving Guns and Roses, Aerosmith and a little bit of Red Hot Chili Peppers. The Internet was not yet around back then so I only got to see my idols on MTV. I’m not always loud and I do listen to love songs and an occasional country music. My favourite country singers were LeAnn Rimes and Shania Twain and I cherish love songs by Celine Dion and I would listen to Michael Buble’ when it suits me.
They say that “when it’s too loud; your getting old” and I think so too. All day long my daughter would play rap and when I go to the streets it’s full of rap and metal rock that stings my ears. One time though I was astonished to hear that she was playing some mellow music. I don’t know about young artists today but I like the hint of a country song in it. It was indeed a country song and my girl was crazy about this guitar playing girl named Taylor Swift.
I never get to watch my favourite sports network when she’s around. I guess she was really spoiled so I would stick to the old MTV watching this blonde girl sing her fabulous songs. Next thing I knew she bought home all her albums and posted a picture of her even in the living room. I hate to admit it but sometimes I sing to her tune. In her MTV “You Belong With Me” it was all a typical nerd vs. popular love triangle but I loved it. See, I can now tell you all about her because I became her new fan.
In February last year my daughter begged me to go and see her tour. Concerts are great because even though you can’t go near the stage, the fact that your idol is singing in front of you is just fantastic. When I was young, how I would love to be in Woodstock but Australia is miles and miles away and I can’t afford it. I was my biggest dream and I think rock fanatics would certainly agree that it is the biggest gathering for music. I never fulfilled my dream but I will fulfill hers. Now that I saved enough, I will certainly buy tickets to Taylor’s Los Angeles concert on September. At thirty-three I hope I’m not too old to be there.Mail this post
