It's too bad that this Heads or Tails doesn't come closer to Christmas. I could use this carol and cover all bases:
I wonder as I wander out under the sky,
How Jesus the Savior did come for to die.
For poor on'ry people like you and like I...
I wonder as I wander out under the sky.
(Complete lyrics here.)
Barb, as is her custom in these Heads or Tails pieces, posts a music video, this one from a "one hit wonder" -- Vanilla Ice.
I get these rappers confused, but a bit of quick research this morning persuaded me that Vanilla Ice is entirely different from Milli Vanilli, a briefly popular duo that were the subject of several lawsuits, including several here in the County of Cook, because, it was alleged, the duo defrauded their fans by lip synching their songs. I remembered that there was a big fight over attorneys fees due after the settlement of the class actions... but I'm wandering again, aren't I?
But this talk of music puts me in mind of several songs....
"Book of Love," by the Monotones (a name not inspired by my singing voice, no matter what you've heard):
Who wrote the book of love...
Or Del Shannon -- and "Runaway" --
Oh, what went wrong with our love
A love that was so strong
And as I still walk on
I think of the things we've done together
Oh, while our hearts were young
I'm a-walking in the rain, tears are falling and I feel a pain
A wishing you were here by me to end this misery
And I wonder, I wa-wa-wa-wa-wonder
Why, why why why why why she ran away
And I wonder, oh where she will stay, yay
My little runaway, a-run-run-run-run-runaway
Or -- and I'll stop now, I promise -- Dion DiMucci and "The Wanderer":
Where pretty girls are well you know that I'm around
I kiss'em and I love'em 'cause to me they're all the same
I hug'em and I squeeze'em they don't even know my name
They call me the wanderer -- yeah -- the wanderer
I roam around around around around...
Long Suffering Spouse never much cared for this one, especially when I'd sing along with great enthusiasm. I wonder why....
