Do I dare tell you about the rabbit hole I fell into whilst creating this post? It's kind of embarrasing and rather typical of my day to day life online; maybe you can relate? It all started when I opened my email and saw this image (above). From powdery pink to saturated coral, I'm loving this chest of drawers painted in tones of apricot that the folks at Livet Hemma sent over. It's a TARVA 5 drawer chest that they painted into an ombre shade of orange and when I saw it, the song "Love is like apricot" started playing my head. Seriously (this really happened). Love is like apricot? Um, yep, I wasn't sure either, so I googled it –the start of my rabbit hole.
So ok, it isn't "Love is like apricot", it's "Love is like oxygen" (by the band Sweet). So have I been singing this song wrong my entire life? Apparantly so. Apricot doesn't even sound the least bit like oxygen, so how did that even happen? I'm not even going to attempt to try to figure that out but what about all those other songs I've been singing wrong? One that came to mind immediately and I had an inkling I've been singing wrong all my life was "Tiny Dancer" by Elton John. Yeah I know, my entire life something was amiss with my version; well today I decided I was going to finally find out what the right words were and put that Tiny Dancer lyric issue to rest! So I googled Tiny Dancer Lyrics.
But reading the lyrics just wasn't triggering my version, so I decided to look for the actual song. I found this one here. Nice version, but the one I'm familiar with I think is a bit
Its' from a Kilborn show back in 2006. He makes reference to a bus scene on the film Almost Famous, (a film I never saw) so since my interest is
So there you go, I dared to tell you. (Does that ever happen to you)?
