Wednesday is my Dad’s birthday. Dad likes music almost as much as mum and I but the only gigs he goes to is Jack Jones. When I was younger though Sunday’s were mostly based around the CD player. There was no Itunes or Ipods, and there were only 4 TV channels and not much football on.
Sunday’s started with cooking the dinner and Billy Fury would always be played! So much so, that our neighbours thought my Dad’s name was Bill and I could sing the start of the next song on the CD before it even started playing.
Then after dinner Dad would normally put music on and listen through headphones, but it would be SO loud that we could all hear it too! Elvis and Queen would always be played and its thanks to Dad that I have a love for all these singers today.
Today’s post didn’t have a specific lyric to it, just a thank to my Dad for all he’s done and continues to do for me and the good music he’s taught me about, then I realised that these lyrics sums up me and my Dad perfectly…
When no-one else can understand me
When everything I do is wrong
You give me hope and consolation
You give me strength to carry on
And you’re always there to lend a hand
In everything I do
That’s the wonder of you
Happy Birthday Dad – I Love You x
