This is a present for my mom, who hasn’t heard this music in a while.
Many years ago my dad arrived home with this bundle of love:
Over the next few years, we would complain every time we had to hear these (8!) records. Which was all the time! These were the family’s mandatory road trip jams. This was the soundtrack to my mom’s long working hours, fighting to introduce sex education in the schools or helping victims of domestic violence… with a smile on her face, singing along slightly out of tune.
Sure, we complained, but of course we loved it; listen to this!
Please don’t think there is any cool sarcasm in my love for this music. As far as I’m concerned, these are the perfect pop songs, with the ooh’s and aah’s and bird chirps in all the right places.
Mami, este post es para tí, con amor!
