I was on Facebook the other day, poking around when I happened to stumble upon a post from a co-worker asking her friends to reveal their favorite songs. This co-worker is presently laid up and off work due to multiple herniated discs and may not be returning to work until next year depending on whether or not they can be rectified by surgery or other methods.
A couple of her friends posted in response but one seemed not to be able to understand why she wished to know the information, or was hesitant to share. I took the opportunity to insert my .02, saying that it was a way to pass the time, when one is off work and sitting at home either healing or biding their time to get back to work, anything can be a diversion. So offer your favorite song, with a link, what’s the harm?
To bolster my point, I offered up my favorite from the 1970’s, at least one of them. Having lived this long, I just don’t have one favorite that is far and away above all others. I recently found a version of it from 2018 that was pretty amazing. One of the front men of the group collaborated with a youth orchestra and choir and managed to transform the music into something very different from its original tone and version.
So, for your perusal and enjoyment, I give you the upscale version of Styx’s ‘Fooling Yourself’ by Tommy Shaw and the Contemporary Youth Orchestra.
So, that’s mine. What’s yours?
