This morning, a Facebook friend asked the question, “If you could choose your ring tone, what song would it be?” Funny, my first thought was the song, “I Could Have Danced All Night.”
I found it curious that this song came to mind, and I’ll admit, I was a little embarrassed at my “old-fashioned,” even corny, choice. Why that song, of the thousands and thousands I might have chosen?
The film version of My Fair Lady came out in 1964. I was only six years old, and I suppose when I first watched, it was no more than an adult version of a fairy tale, Cinderella or Beauty and the Beast, perhaps. But as I watched it through the years, particularly in my young teenage years, it came to define what it would be like to be fall in love, to feel a happiness so full, one must dance.
I suppose it’s a good thing, old-fashioned or not, that even today, it’s the first song that comes to mind when defining myself by a ring tone.
What song would you pick?
