It’s the first post in 2016 guys!!!!

How’s the new year been for you all so far? Hope it’s been awesome? If it’s not, don’t worry, it’ll be. Give it time yeah?

I’m so excited, this year has kicked off on good grounds already, as we already have a guest post on the 4th day of January!!!. It’s a year of great partnerships, people, just get ready.

Bukunmi is a bright and pleasant colleague at work whom I discovered, has similar taste in music as I do, and of course that struck me!! Its music we’re talking about here. Once she read a couple of previous MCM posts on this blog, she got really interested in writing one and I feel so privileged to have her post on this blog. Below, is Bukunmi’s MCM for today. Awesome, Little wonder, we like the same type of songs, over to Bukunmi:

Life could be full of crazies…a whole lot of them. Listening to Chris August’s 1989 makes me find myself wishing I could be that care free little girl with lots of dreams and little doubt; less worries and more smiles. Then I wonder, ‘Why not?!’ Who says growing up means been old and boring and bland and fearful and purposeless and conservative and…(pheeeew!!! trust you can go on and on).

I don’t have to be anything short of being happy and excited about the crazies of life. I don’t have to live each day reminiscing on the memories of my childhood. I don’t have to wish to go back and live it all over again (the thought of starting school all over again isn’t appealing at all *grins*). But I can do at least one thing; I can choose to live through those eyes again. So can you!

 

Chris August 1989

Summer day 7 years old and I took a ride on my bicycle
I can still feel my face against the wind
A backpack full of my favorite toys
Singing songs just to make some noise
Is a good way for a day to begin

I remember when life was simple way back then
Now I’m trying to see through those eyes again, through those eyes

[Chorus:]
If I could turn back time I’d go to 1989
Where every day was full of chasin’ dreams
Yeah I may be grown up but maybe I should try
Livin’ like it’s 1989

Deep inside this Texas heart there’s an innocence underneath the scars
Waiting to be called outside to play
Wanna feel like a wide eyed kid, wanna put it all back into perspective
God You’re great just because You’re great

It is so uncomplicated with You here, with You here
You make the person that I once was reappear, You reverse the years

[Chorus]

I’m sorry that I made it something complicated
I am ready now it’s not too late
Everyday I’m learning it’s all about returning
I’m living my life with child-like faith
I’m sorry that I made it something complicated
I am ready now it’s not too late
Everyday I’m learning it’s all about returning
I’m living my life like I could

Turn back time and go to 1989
Where every day was full of chasin’ dreams
Yeah I may be grown up but maybe I should try
Livin’ like it’s 1989
I’m livin’ like it’s 1989

Hope you guys like today’s song? I hope you learn to embrace the child in out and live it out like it’s friggin’ 1989, and if 1989 wasn’t a great time, then go to 1988 or 7 or 2001, whichever happy place works for you.

See you soon, later this week. Mwaaaaaaah
