It’s a “I Guess That’s Why They Call It The Blues” kind of night. Ever listen to the lyrics? The song is about deployment. I received a really sweet email from my husband last night. He told me how much he loves me and how much he hates being away from me. It reminded me of the lyric “I simply love you more then I love life itself”, and I’ve had this song stuck in my head ever since. I sang it tonight during a karaoke party our command wives’ club had in celebration of our SOW’s birthday. Great party, great ladies, great time, but I had a moment or two of near-tears thinking about my husband’s email last night. He’s pretty great.
^^ I chose this version because it was taped in 1988 in the Tokyo Dome!
Side note: I made a total faux pas tonight at karaoke. I was making a joke and said the wrong word in place of what I meant to say, and it was really, REALLY inappropriate. I’m one of those people who kicks myself for slip-ups, and I think I’m going to be feeling embarrassed about this one for a LONG time. /facepalm
