[QUOTE=wackychimp;1044741]I’ve been a long-time lurker here but wanted to share something with you all that surprised me, since I knew you’d “get it”.
I read here that they were bringing back the Main Street Electrical Parade, something I’d loved as a kid, but I hadn’t thought of it in years.
“Oh yeah! I remember that,” I thought. “Seems like it had a really cool synthesizer song with it…” (I’ve since been reminded that it’s electro-syntho-magnetic ) “I’m gonna go look that up.”
So off to YouTube I went and easily found it. What happened next was totally unexpected…
As the intro wound down, “the syntho-voice” came on. “Ladies & gentlemen, boys & girls…” My heart skipped. My eyes welled up and I felt so… excited, for lack of a better word. I was a kid again and was filled with genuine excitement for the MSEP. I really felt like the floats must have been just around the corner and that they’d be coming my way soon. I was giddy, choked-up and generally overwhelmed with emotion all from this song from my (our) childhood.
[I]I’ve never had anything like this happen to me before.[/I] Sure I choke up a little for the Star Spangled Banner, but never anything like this.
Anyway, I bought the song and have been rationing it to myself because I want that feeling to hang around as long as it can.
I hope at some point you’re able to tap into a memory like this, whether Disney related or not.
Thanks for reading…[/QUOTE]
And thanks for sharing what is a beautiful memory and story. I understand that feeling a little, whenever I hear Ugly Bug Ball, it reminds me of time with my mother. My mother is not very demonstrative or emotive, but this song was something we both loved and shared and so for me it’s a very special memory when I hear it.
Oh and welcome to Mousebuzz, good to have you here.
