    In the summer, my company has at least one picnic. I'm allowed, LOL, to choice a few songs for the DJ to play as we relax poolside. Only a few songs have not caused me to be yelled at. This is one.

    Great song.

    My parents told me that at the age of 3 or 4 years I was able to sing these English lyrics. :cool:

    Surprising because I was hardly able to speak German, my native language. :D

    I’ve posted a few Weezer songs and of course Weezer did a cover of this one. I’ve never cared for the song itself nor did I care for the new version. It got so bad I almost called the local radio I was listening to and remind them Weezer has other songs besides Africa!

    With that said, it definitely seems to be a favorite. I think I’m the outlier on this one.

    David Bowie was inspired to write this song after reading about two lovers who were gunned down in the shadow of the Berlin Wall. I’ve always been fascinated the Berlin Wall and what it must have been like living in Cold War era Germany. I appreciate @DazzlingAnna who has befriended me since her arrival at Dims and has actually shared some of her experiences and memories since she had a front row seat when the Wall came down.

    So this one is for Anna!

    David Bowie is a great singer and @DazzlingAnna is a nice person and I also like the music she shares on the board.

    I know that feeling. There were many songs played on local radio over and over again in the 70s and 80s that I had no idea how they were popular.

    Well,

    I share my empowering song with you. It has a special meaning.
    It hit me in 2016 when I really went through a tough year with lots of losses.
    This song means so much to me, it definitely was a part of my change in mindset to accepting myself, kind of finding myself.

    Amazing to hear the final speech from The Dictator.

    This next song is from mid- 90s, I've been into this Euro-Dance-Aera as you've maybe read before in this thread.
    This one is different of course - it was always a song I liked very much. But even today it became a kind of a mantra...

    "Shine like a star, shine into the future. spreading your light. wherever you are."
    That is basically what I try to do in my life. There are better days than others, generally speaking that's what I do...

    As I am constantly updating my music playlist I always add new old music to it.
    Today's update, (thanks to @TheStaunton who mentioned this band in one of his first posts here at dims -welcone again!) is one song from Blur which I like very much in the late 90s.

    I've been on a school exchange in England and I remember Blur was a big thing, maybe not as big as Oasis, but I've always preferred Blur.
