I’m not actually here. I’m either in lala land, or halfway there as I prepare for my shoulder surgery. I’m relieved and ready to get this over with. A full year of pain and not feeling like myself will hopefully stop once they fix whatever the problem is today.
So in honor of the surgery, and because I’m weird that way, I’m going to be playing songs about cutting or surgery. I was going to use Like a Surgeon but I realized I played that one already. Instead, we’re going with Bryan Adams’ Cuts Like A Knife. Hello, you know you love this song! If you’re a child of the 80s you were a Bryan Adams fan. I know I still kind of am.
Any time I hear Summer of 69, I’m reminded of college. Not that I went to college in 1969. I wasn’t even born yet, but that song was always on play at the bar that was like a second home for me in my youth. Ah, that first line “I bought my first real six string”…yeah, it brings back memories. But Cuts Like a Knife was probably the first song I recall hearing from Bryan Adams and it didn’t hurt that I thought he was cute. Of course, I was like 7…but still, he was cute.
Enjoy the song and I hope to send drugged tweets and facebook updates at some point. But no pictures. Nu-uh.
