Just not my genre, I guess

So. I was on hold, waiting to talk to my husband this morning, and a song comes on the muzak.  At first, I wasn’t really listening, as is common with me and hold-music.  Then, it got my attention.  Not because it was such an awesome song.  No…  The person singing, I couldn’t tell if it was a guy or a lady (it’s a guy), but that wasn’t the issue.  The music itself?  Not my taste, but not terrible.  But the lyrics…

I found myself thinking, “Is this real?  Is that really what the guy is saying?  And who would write a song like that?  And who would record it??  And who would listen to it???  Maybe it’s a joke.  No… sounds like he’s taking himself pretty seriously.  I cannot believe anyone would listen to this.”

Mmhm… groove with me, baby.

(Note, I have not actually sat through the whole video;  please tell me if there’s any inappropriate content. Wait.  I thought I’d better watch it, just in case.  Suggestive, but not really inappropriate.  And, it leaves us with a teaser of “to be continued…” at the end!  Woo hoo!)

You are my starship
Come and take me up tonight
And don’t be late

In case you were wondering, that’s Kenny Lattimore, with his 2008 cover of the 1976 Norman Connors classic You are my Starship.

You’d think if it’s been around since 1976, I’d have heard it before, but I’m sure I haven’t.  I’d remember.  Starship?!? Ack.

I'm a partially-homeschooling mother of six -- 3 boys ages 19, 17 and 15 years old, and three girls: 11, 8, and 3. I like birding, reading, writing, organic gardening, singing, playing guitar, hiking, the outdoors, and books. I very casually lead a very large group of homeschooling families in the Phoenix area. I have a dear hubby who designs homes for a local home builder and who is the worship pastor of our church. I live in the desert, which I used to hate, but now appreciate.
