30-Day Song Challenge, Day Six - A Song that Reminds You of Somewhere
A song that always takes me back to Phildelphia is "Easy Lover" by Philip Bailey and Phil Collins. Philip Bailey was one of the lead singers from Earth, Wind and Fire (along with Maurice White) who went on to do a solo album, and this was the biggest hit from his album. Ummm...might have been the only hit, since I can't remember another one. Well, he's back with the old band, so he's good. Phil Collins was a former lead singer of Genesis, and he had quite a successful solo career...for a while. Might be time to get back with his old band, too.
Anyway, this song reminds me of Philadelphia because it reminds me of a particular day. I had a habit of putting on my headphones and taking long walks while listening to music (something I actually mentioned in yesterday's challenge http://personapaper.com/article/25287-30-day-song-challenge-day-five---a-song-that-reminds-you-of-someone ), and one day when I was in college in Philadelphia, it was a rather cool and windy day, but it was also sunny and pretty and I didn't have any classes, so I put on a jacket and my ever-present headphones, and I walked down the Benjamin Franklin Parkway to the Philadelphia Museum of Art (in the picture). I remember listening to that song as I stood on the plaza of the museum, with the wind blowing around me. It's a good memory that I always relive when I hear the song "Easy Lover".
