The What’s Playing Wednesdays theme for this month is fire.
I have a fascination with fire that I can’t explain. No, I’m not a pyromaniac or anything, but I love to watch a fire whether it’s in a fireplace, or a bonfire. There’s something mesmerizing about the colors and randomness in the flames as they dance. The sight of a fire makes all of my worries fade away, leaving me filled with peace.
I love the colors as well, going so far as to make sure the tattoos I have are in golds, oranges, and reds. I can’t seem to break away from the theme and I don’t want to.
So today’s song is by a band from the 70s which means lots of funk and bass and horns. Maybe it’s my tuba playing roots, but I love funk. When I decided to go with the fire theme, I knew this song had to be in the mix.
Here’s the Ohio Players with “Fire”. Now get up and dance. You know you want to!
