I spent the day with my boys.
I was in luck. My Uverse was operational which has not been the case much in the last week.
I found one version that caught my attention which I posted to facebook.
My comment on the post was: For the holiday season. A bit old, a bit dated, grainy video. But a great crossover of so many music periods from the Phil Spector's wall of sound days, backup harmonies of the sixties that set standards used today, video style of the sixties, a great voice, a great piece of writing from Mariah that has been covered by so many other folks today.
I thought back on what I had done in my life to this point and was somewhat amazed I made it this far.
I have often remarked that photographs are for people who can not remember things in their life. Photographs are nice to share with others though. I have been taking photographs since I was about 13 years old. I rhought of the photos I had in storage where my boys live. Many of them going back to about Junior High School. Most folks reading this might not even know what I am talking about when I say Junior High School.
Over my life I have been asked; "if you could pick when you were born what would be your choice?" My reply has never changed. I would want to be born when I was born.
Psycedelics, concerts, The Fillmore, Haight-Ashbury, The Cheetah, Sunset Strip, driving my 1957 MGA on Sunset Blvd from the sea to the end of the strip, Vietnam was probably the only downside to the era.
In the Mariah video some of the things I like:
1 - the backup singers and their harmony arrangement
2 - Mariah's mini-dress being even shorter than the dresses on the dancers
3 - Recalling how Carol Norman in High School used to be sent home at least once a week for her mini-shirt being too short.
