I have a dream

I listen to this song mostly to pull myself back to earth, when I am having a bad day or is disturbed. It makes me want to keep dreaming, to sing, to dance, to paint, to run, to write. to smile, to love and not perish.
Whenever I sing this song or listen to it, it takes me back to growing up in that haunted mysterious rented house up on the hill where I spent my eventful childhood.  Atticus and Amma had the record player, playing all kinds of music, be it old malayalam melodies, gazals, rock music, jazz, classical. The record collection was huge. And ABBA was one of them. It seems when I was born, Atticus used to sing this song to me to put me to sleep and I used to peacefully fall asleep on his shoulders is the story I have heard from my parents. And when I was a toddler I used to sit in front of the record player and listen to the records for hours Amma said. It was almost like another baby sitter, our enchanting record player.
ABBA performed this song two months later I was born( well of course eventful 1979 eh?) at the historical concert at Wembley live and it was aired on TV for that Christmas of 1979 before we jumped into the 80s, the 80s.
So here is another song for you all and for my JukeBox. 

I Have A Dream”
I have a dream, a song to sing
To help me cope with anything
If you see the wonder of a fairy tale
You can take the future even if you fail
I believe in angels
Something good in everything I see
I believe in angels
When I know the time is right for me
I’ll cross the stream – I have a dream
I have a dream, a fantasy
To help me through reality
And my destination makes it worth the while
Pushing through the darkness still another mile
I believe in angels
Something good in everything I see
I believe in angels
When I know the time is right for me
I’ll cross the stream – I have a dream
I’ll cross the stream – I have a dream
I have a dream, a song to sing
To help me cope with anything
If you see the wonder of a fairy tale
You can take the future even if you fail
I believe in angels
Something good in everything I see
I believe in angels
When I know the time is right for me
I’ll cross the stream – I have a dream
I’ll cross the stream – I have a dream
