I wanna be around

Day 29~ A song from your childhood

The very first song I remember deeming as my favorite was Tony Bennett’s I Wanna Be Around.  Odd choice, I’ll admit.  But while other kids my age where listening to Michael Jackson and John Cougar (with or without the Mellencamp), I was spinning Tony Bennett’s record in my room.  Yes, I said record.  I can distinctly remember playing it over and over again, belting out the lyrics.  Long before I realized how bad my singing voice was, I serenaded Pinkie the Bear and my 100 other stuffed animals.  My sister & brother were at school and I alone to entertain my Barbies and toys.  For the life of me, I can’t remember what song was on the other side of the record but I’ll never forget the words to I wanna be around.
