One of the two hundred level stations on Comcast is airing a Queen concert from 1981 from Canada. A time where things weren’t so bad,…yet…It’s incredible how the music of our youth comes back to bite us in the butt when we least expect it. The new wild, hot songs we used to bop too now have a slightly faded edge to match the slightly fading vision in our eyes as we get older.The spring in my step that had me out at night clubbing to the music, and had me coming in the next morning humming the tune as I came into the office now only get a little chuckle and my step to the office is just as leaden as it has been for the past fifteen years.
Queen, I’ll grant you, is not everyone’s cup of tea, but you know what? The dreck from the office today is swept away and I can try to fall asleep and feel slightly more optimistic about tomorrow.
