Time for a little flashback today with a Robert Plant song – it is a song called Big Log HERE.
This song was rather special this fall.
When it came on one day in early October, a few of us were all talking about how we had not heard the song in years (maybe even decades).
Then somebody was talking about the release date of the song – and they said it came out in “FALL” of 1983. Now let me tell you that I am pretty good with knowing dates for a lot of 1980’s songs – it was just how my mind worked at the time. More than artists or song names, I knew dates.
And so with Big Log, I happened to KNOW that it was “SUMMER” of 1983 (turns out it was July 1983 and I was right… wink)
The reason I knew it was summer was because I remembered sitting on my front porch jamming to this song with Darren, a special friend who lived down the street. Darren and I never dated, but we shared a bond of friendship through conversation. For a couple of summers, he and I were the only ones out at 1 and 2 a.m. We’d sit on the porch and talk for a long time – while the music played – from one of those wooden cabinet FM radio stereo systems in the house – the kind with the record player:
I also remember leaning over that cabinet – adjusting the knobs – hearing a DJ remark that Pink Floyd’s “Dark Side of the moon” hit a ten year record sales (something like that) – funny how small memories linger.
There is a part 2 to this “fall 2016 enjoying Big Log song”- and that story will be shared in an upcoming post…
