You know, I still don’t know when I first heard this song. The song was first recorded in 1993, so I suspect I probably heard this song first while I was stationed in MCAS Iwakuni, Japan.
When I hear this song, no matter what mood I’m in, I guarantee most of the time I will get cheerful. There’s something about this song that just reminds me of good times.
I mentioned in 2008 that it reminded me of a time spent in Philly. But honestly, I am starting to think that it just reminds me of good times, no matter where they were.
I admit that a lot of my good times were spent going to concerts in Philly, eating with my friends in all the diners in Jersey. Especially Golden Dawn on Rt. 38. Is that diner still there? I know Olga’s was closed down, which was kinda sad to me. We went there for a mini reunion, which was really cool. Getting to see some of my old friends was very awesome. At a diner even. Sometimes I think a lot of my youth and good times were spent just talking away in a diner.
I admit though some of those times were rather bittersweet. I think that’s why I am reminded of these times when I hear this song. Of course, this could be just a bunch of babble. Regardless, as usual, I have included the video for your viewing pleasure. I hope it gives you some enjoyment, as much as it gives me.
Video after the bump.
