Anyone whose known me for a while, knows I love to dance. Sometimes I crank up the music in my car, and have a blast! Yea, I definitely sing my heart out. Being in the driver’s seat doesn’t prevent me from dancing up a storm or shout. A favorite song gets me hopping in my seat, waving my arms, slapping the steering wheel like a drum. I put my foot on the clutch, shift that stick, step on the gas pedal moving my whole body, and shifting my bum . Vrooooom, vroom, vroooom, vroom, vroom, errrrrrt! Don’t worry, nobody ever gets hurt.
I have plenty of favorite songs from classical to jazz to rock and roll, but there are a few that when driving, particularly move my soul. Do you want to hear my all-time favorite car jamming tunes? I bet a lot of you know them by heart, too. To listen to them at the volume I sing them, turn the volume waAAY up, my chum. Perhaps if you heard my voice you’d start howling, but alone in my closed car window world, I’ve got a voice as cool as they come. You better believe those in the passing cars, and those behind them, think I’m super loopy, indeed. But I don’t care if I’m seen, because I am the ultimate dancing queen!
Sometimes while a great song is playing, I’m approaching my home destination. I’m not yet ready to stop the party, so I pass my street, and do a loop de loop. Sometimes yet another great song starts just after the last, so you might find me circling the neighborhood, improvising my new route…just like they do with music, in a jazz group. At that time, I turn off the radio and finally head home. I pull into my garage with my heart beating fast. I sit a few moments more, and recover from the jammin’ dash.
