They’re Playing My Song


Sanity break. I’m going through work overload stress and I need to breathe, so I did some Facebook therapy.

I found that one of my friends tagged me in the note “No. 1 Song“. I did not just read her Note; I went one step further and blogged about it because it was interesting. The Note led me to a website where the No. 1 Song on Any Date in History may be found. I looked up my birthday and found that that the No. 1 Song in the US Billboard on the day I was born was:

Annie’s Song
John Denver

You fill up my senses
like a night in the forest
like the mountains in springtime,
like a walk in the rain
like a storm in the desert,
like a sleepy blue ocean
you fill up my senses,
come fill me again.

Come let me love you,
let me give my life to you
let me drown in your laughter,
let me die in your arms
let me lay down beside you,
let me always be with you
come let me love you,
come love me again.

(instrumental)

You fill up my senses
like a night in the forest
like the mountains in springtime,
like a walk in the rain
like a storm in the desert,
like a sleepy blue ocean
you fill up my senses,
come fill me again.

My favorite version of this song is from “My Best Friend’s Wedding” (what, this film? I don’t remember it; I don’t remember ANY line from the movie, only that it made me curious enough to try a creme brulee for the first time in my life), where Dermot Mulroney’s brother and his friends took in helium from the balloons they were preparing for the wedding, and then sang this song in perfect harmony, with helium- thin voices. Too bad this song was not included in the original motion picture soundtrack (what soundtrack? I don’t own a copy of this soundtrack, I DON’T listen to it, I just can’t stop Sayin’ a Little Prayer, Wishin’ and Hopin’ that someone will sing The Way You Look Tonight because What the World Needs Now is Love, but I’ll Be Okay).

Okay, enough silliness. Back to work.
