Subject: Don't You Just LOVE It When.................?
From: The Shambles
Date: 09 Feb 99 - 04:14 AM

After the opportunity to express our frustration and prejudice in the `Don't You Just Hate It When?' thread, I think it might be an idea to try and redress the balance and to give us a chance here to be a bit more positive.

It's probably a bit harder and nowhere near such fun but it is worth doing.

Don't you just love it when, someone comes up to you and asks "will you play that one you wrote about .............?"

These moments come around less often but they do tend to cancel out all the negative ones and make it all worthwhile.

when someone totally unexpected thanks you for singing - I remember one evening walking home - I was trying to get a song down - and sang it over and over as I walked - when I noticed there was someone walking behind me - I stopped singing - and very shortly thereafter heard "please don't stop - I was enjoying it" MMario

Or when you have played a relatively obscure song and someone says, "Wow! I really enjoyed that song you did about _____. Did you write it?" This tells me that, although I didn't write it, the song fits me well enough to cause someone to believe it is mine. It is one thing for me to feel that way about a song; but a whole different thing when someone else recognizes it.

This has nothing much to do with music..........

Yeah, I love it when one of my sons snuggles up beside me and says, "I love you Dad."

I didn't marry til I was 36 and we adopted our first at age 42. At 43 I quit my job and took on the new career as Dad and househusband. Karen and I had also been fostering for several years as we still do. When I left my job with a Fortune 500 with a resignation letter stating that I didn't want my life, or my son's, to wind up like a Harry Chapin song lyric, I'm sure the company had NO idea what I was talking about. Outside of marrying Karen, it was the best decision I ever made.

The words are but words...the feelings are real. Nothing quite equals, "I love you Dad." So thanks Harry, for the lyric...and the truth.

I loved it this morning when I could hear my son (age 11) in the shower singing "Wednesday morning at five o'clock as the day begins.... Silently closing the bedroom door....Leaving the note that she hoped would say more, she goes down stairs to the kitchen clutching her handkerchief..." He sang the whole song through, and when he came out he said, I just love that song, don't you love that song, Mom? Yea, I do.

I love it when my kids (in their twenties) sing with me. There are two occasions I remember most fondly. One was the Christmas afternoon that we spent singing Simon & Garfunkel songs. The second was one of my son's punk rock concerts, when I was 25 years older than anyone else there. At the concert, the crowd demanded that I get up and sing with my son. We sang "This Land Is Your Land," and the audience sang along. Those kids with their pierced tongues and navels and whatnot knew all the words.

I loved it when, from 1977 to 1995, I had the opportunity to travel and to perform with my family --forty or so gigs a year plus regular day jobs: wife on guitar, daughter on mandolin, son on bass, me on banjo, all of us singing, later son-in-law driving the bus and playing guitar. Now I love it when we can all get together and reminisce about the wonderful folks we met all over the country and the great times we had. I also love it when I can feel that I did my duty and passed along to my kids the songs that my parents and grandparents and the other old folks gave to me.

After finishing a set at a festival recently, a woman approached me behind the stage (with her husband!) and told me "I took the day off from work just to come hear you sing". For me, it just doesn't get any better than that.

...our twelve year old daughter teaches the entire audience to sing "Head and shoulders, knees and toes"* in Japanese, makes them stand up and do it, and then joins us in singing "My Lady of Autumn".

*Ata ma kata eez ah ashee, eez ah ashee (2X)
Meh toe, mimi toe, kuji toe, hana,

This is, of course a transliteration.

I assist them to play from a selection of instruments and the satisfaction when they find an instrument that suits them. It gives me a smile and makes the job worthwhile.

Hi fellow folkies, sorry I am so scarce lately, but this too shall pass.

I just love it when my 22 year old daughter shows up with a half dozen or so of her friends for all my gigs. And when they ask me to teach them some song, well, it feels great.

All the best,

I love it when... an audience sings with you, it's a sense of knowing you've picked the right material and your singing and playing well enough for them to participate. .....Being asked to do a gig because they want to hear you, not just because you come cheap.(free) .....Being asked to do a gig because they like to hear your singing and guitar playing, and not just because you can provide the sound system. ..... when you do a gig and they ask if your wife would bring those delicious cookies. I don't care....I STILL LOVE IT! Jack

I just love it when I'm sitting around singing with friends and suddenly on one song the harmonies rise as one chord and the guitars bob and weave around each other like they'd been practicing all week. Everybody is smiling and swaying and we all know the song is going to end and no one wants it to end. So we repeat the last verse or chorus about five times.

Don't you just love it when nobody knows who you are and they come to hear you play anyway. And when in the course of the evening, you sing a song that reminds them of their Mom or Dad or great Grandfolks they sing along. And afterwards when there is the coffee drinking and the packing and chatting and hand shaking they ask you back. And when you do come back they all remember your name and they bring a friend and they ask for the song that reminded them of their Moms and Dads....

Thats what I love .

I go off to one of the every Friday night song circles that we have here in Toronto, there's a group of 25 plus, and someone leads us on one of the great many chorus songs which have been brought to the group over the past decade and a half. When those people gathered start singing in goodness knows how many part harmonies and we look at each other and practically glow, well yes, it doesn't get much better for me. And yeah, I have to confess that it feels especially great when my turn comes round and I'm the one leading the song.

Drat all you people with your folkie kids! -- My son, now 16, took a dislike to folk music before he was born; he used to kick me every time I played my guitar.

But I takes my fun where I finds it, and his friends have introduced him to the local "oldies" station. And I'll admit, I just love it when I hear him singing "Unchained Melody," or when he comes into my room to listen to my new "Best of the Everly Brothers" CD.
