Singing and Dancing My A$$ Off! 2

January 21, 2012


I was singing "Magic Of The Blue" and a few other songs by Blue Magic

A couple days ago, I left Le Crib Studio to go to Drexel University. I was singing "Magic Of The Blue" and a few other songs by Blue Magic. It made sense because Drexel is in the city of Philadelphia, where the group Blue Magic is from. Little did I know that by the end of the day I'd experience something that I was not prepared for. In fact, I didn't even know it existed. It was the analog tape archive of the legendary Sigma Sound Studio which is now housed at the university.

Music is such a big part of my life, that I spend a large portion of the day singing, humming, whistling, or just hearing songs in my head. This action is usually prompted by something that I encounter.

During a tour of the Drexel campus I was taken to the tape archive. When I saw the massive amount of familiar song recordings - I was overjoyed and just started singing and Dancing My A$$ Off.
