I "heart" you , Boston

If I don't take a break from thinking about food, I will accidentally climb into my freezer and eat the frozen Reese's Peanut Butter Cups some one put in there around Halloween. I've lost 9 lbs in the last 3 weeks... I can't screw it up. Thanks for understanding. So in the meantime, I thought a trip down memory lane might be fun.

While leaving exercise class this morning, me and a couple of the other moms were talking about music and old lead singer crushes. It was funny how we all went crazy for some of the same guys. But I will never forget this one- Brad Delp, the lead singer of Boston, one of the greatest groups of all time.

I remember, when I was a teenager, taking my Boston album to school so that I'd be able to play it in art class- on a RECORD PLAYER!!. Even the teacher (who was fairly young herself) was singing away with us. This was me, long, long, ago in a teen galaxy far, far, away...

And this is the song that, to this day, I will sing along with in the car and not care who is staring at me.

You turned it up, didn't you..? You're singing along, aren't you..? Don't worry, I can't hear you... Bust out!

De-lurking to say CONGRATS on your 9 lb. loss! I totally know how hard it is!
And I just had to comment on Boston..also one of my faves and yes, I did crank it up and sing at work! My boss already thinks I'm what!?

Boston's debut LP is still one of my faves and the production quality was so good that it still sounds "modern".

RIP Brad Delp.

I think that we grew up about the same time. So love that song. It's wonderful how you are so motivated to stick to your diet. I really need to move more to lose weight.

OMG! I, too, love Brad Delp. Love him. And I love how stories abound about how he was literally the nicest guy. He brought so much joy to the world.

And, yeah, I totally turned up the volume. My dogs think I'm insane. I think they're just jealous of my air guitar. said...

Wow! You are gorgeous. I love Boston - back when music was good!!!
