My six year old has an odd fascination with history. Don’t ask me where she got it, because I hate learning about/watching the olden days. So, no I never watched Little House on the Prairie and I think I would have been depressed as a pioneer. I do reverence my pioneer ancestry however. I am so thankful it was them and not me. I don’t really care for dust or hardship.
Anywho…My daughter checked out a book from the library a few weeks ago about Ghost Towns. One Sunday afternoon her dad started reading it to her and she got really into it! All the Ghost Town talk sparked a memory for me about a song I used to LOVE when I was little. I’m sure my oldest brother Rick who is 8 years older than me must have been really into it. I think I was around 6 or 7 years old when it was popular. I remember listening to it on my dad’s Ghetto Blaster and dancing around to it in my back yard.
You’ll love the classic hair you see in this video. Also, the story-line…totally NOT corny at all. Well, you be the judge.
Am I the only one who remembers this song? I might be. If you remember it pretty please leave me a comment and tell me that you do.
