sobbing nostalgic: rhapsody.

Sixth grade. My sisters gave me the sheet music for this. I had never heard it before. I thought it was kind of strange. But for the sake of sisterly approval, I took it to my piano lesson and asked my instructor to help me learn it.

I grew to LOVE this song. The more I played, the more the tears came. Especially the opening...before I see a little silhouette of a man.

My sisters must have laughed a lot, hearing a little sixth grader sing:

Mama, just killed a man.

Okay, not so funny now. In a post-Columbine world. But back in my innocence, I never payed attention to the actual words. Only my tears.

And now I just really want this song on Guitar Hero. You agree, right? Guitar Hero with all Queen songs....awesome.

I'd sing it. :D

I also remember quite a few of the youth dances where you'd be singing quite intently....before starting your head-banging.

Oh wait. We all did that. LOL.
Good times. (lol)
