And it’s not what you think.
A little background. My friend Joshwa met me on a night shift and he asked me right away, ” who’s your favorite band?” I learned that he always asked that, and it is a good measure of that person’s tastes.
For me, that is is easy, it’s Rush.
But I was asked my favorite song that isn’t Africa, and I couldn’t answer. I like so many songs.
Well, in my previous assignment I was trying to learn more about a rather imposing fellow named Kurt, and I asked him the band question. The 1911 carrying, six feet six tall man, whom I respect and miss, gave a surprising and very deep answer! But this is not his story, so you need to ask him yourself.
But it expanded my horizons a bit, I who thought I was so cultured, and I took three years of experience to narrow it down. I come from a musical family, and my children are all musical. Luke is singing Star Wars as we speak. But Kate is a natural piano player. She learned a song, but after a month of playing it by memory she shifted into the minor key, playing the same song, and it sounded good! She needs lessons to harness that talent, I am serious! But her piano playing settled my favorite song.
You see, a piano can reach all the high and low notes, and the resonance of the piano makes it pleasing for me to listen to. Then, in a fit of fancy, I put on Debussy’s, Au Clair de Lune. A beautiful piano piece.
And that is my favorite song, and I leave you with this rendition.
