(NaBloPoMo Day 16)
With Black Friday coming up in a few days, the theme for this week’s Monday’s Music Moves Me is songs about toys. I’ve been thinking about this song a lot lately, since I have a project coming up sometime in the new year featuring the title of this song…
Hole – “Doll Parts”
As for the project – I came across a lot of doll parts while cleaning out my aunt’s house, and had been wanting to do something with them….so I will be using doll parts as part of my home office lighting. I can’t wait! Though…if it’s like any of my other ongoing projects, it will be a while before I get to work on, let alone finish it. Maybe someday some of my projects will actually see the light of day!
As for my next selection…roller skates were always my favorite toy! How about you? Despite spending my entire youth in skating rinks as well as a few years training with Huntsville’s Dixie Derby Girls, I was no Roller Derby Queen. But oh! how I wanted to be! My time with them was one of the best in my life. This fan-made video (NOT of the Dixie Derby Girls) sure is fun:
Jim Croce – “Roller Derby Queen”
What are YOUR favorite songs about toys?
Featured image is my very own pair of vintage (circa 1979) Riedell Speed Skates with some sweet hot pink wheels. They were nearly 30 years old when I purchased them, and have held up incredibly well. I’m not doing derby anymore, but I still have them!
