My Writing Journey

Up, Up and Away!

on May 13, 2022
In spite of all of our worries and cares right now, life goes on, and it’s far too precious to waste. Last night, I hopped into the car and took a long drive. It was quiet and relaxing, the weather beautiful, and the sunset gorgeous. I couldn’t help thinking about some of the happy music that I’ve heard over the decades, and this song, in particular, popped into my head. I remember listening to this song on the radio at breakfast every morning before school. And, guess what! It’s still a happy song!

The 5th Dimension – one of the best groups of the 1960s. I always loved Marilyn McCoo’s luscious voice.

Have a happy weekend! Do what you love to do! Go where you want to go!

  3. I like your post, the music anyway, but dear Dawn, in Germany only rich people can drive themselves around for fun.

    (sorry for the downer)

    …and I like to drive a car so much.

    Have fun.

    Mmmm, Oh yes, you just jolted my memory,
    And I recall now, I remember listening to it on various radio channels.
    It was also a dancefloor favourite.
    I love the start of the song, it immediately takes you into a jazz dance 💃 routine.
    Reminding one, that life truly goes on.

    Lovely share

  7. Quite an amazing and memorable song that represents a lot of the ’60s vibe for mainstream audiences. It has been stuck in my head since childhood.
