When I was a kid we had a black Tornado, I don't know what year, it's not really that important. We had this eight track tape that was by Petula Clark. It was my favorite in the whole world. I loved that. My favorite song was "downtown". If you know anything about 8 tracks, which i don't, you may know how they worked. but I don't. I knew how to get to that song. I loved that song. I secretly dreamed that Petula Clark would one day come marry my dad. Oh, how cool that would have been?! I think I need to marry a singer or band guy... Someone please call Chris Tomlin and tell him I have an opening next Saturday.
Anyways, today I was in Savelot and a different song by Petula Clark came on but it instantly reminded me of that song and I smiled thinking of simpler times, Barbies, weekends on the boat, my dad in his Coast Guard Uniform, and "downtown". I can't help it, that song makes my day. THEY EVEN HAVE IT ON YOUTUBE! Enjoy both versions.
What's your favorite song from when you were a kid?
Matthew 24:26-28 (message) 26-28"So if they say, 'Run to the country and see him arrive!' or, 'Quick, get downtown, see him come!' don't give them the time of day. The Arrival of the Son of Man isn't something you go to see. He comes like swift lightning to you! Whenever you see crowds gathering, think of carrion vultures circling, moving in, hovering over a rotting carcass. You can be quite sure that it's not the living Son of Man pulling in those crowds.
