There's a song by ABBA that I've always felt like I could relate to..it's called, "Thank you for the music." The beginning of the song goes,
"I'm nothing special, in fact I'm a bit of a bore
If I tell a joke, you've probably heard it before
But I have a talent, a wonderful thing
cause everyone listens when I start to sing"
Not that I'm some super duper singer, but I've always felt more comfortable singing than talking to anyone one on one, or in any other social scene for that matter.
The other day while watching Mamma Mia, I heard this song again, but this time, it was the second verse that struck me. The verse describes Naomi and her incredible baby booty shaking talent and the incredible cuteness she exudes when she starts singing along with Pachebel's Canon.
"Mother says I was a dancer before I could walk
She says I could sing long before I could talk"
Don't believe me? Check out the video. You've seen her dance to MJ. Now see her move to synthesized piano music. I only hope that her love of music is something she carries with her throughout her life.
