Never Gonna Give You Up, #906


Dear Lord, help me!  I overheard my daughter suddenly singing “Never Gonna Give You Up” by Rick Astley.  She was totally jamming to it, too.  “Where in the world did you learn that song?” I asked.  “I must have heard it on the radio.  Maybe on the 80’s station when I’m in Daddy’s car,” she responded.

How has this awful song come back again all of these years later to haunt me?  It completely sucked the first time, and now I have to endure it again?  Oy!

How do musical tastes develop anyhow?  Why is it that some people like one type of music and other people like another?  It can’t solely be based on the environment you grow up in.  Otherwise, my daughter would never be rocking out to Rick Astley.  I can assure you all of that.

Well, not to give you all an annoying ear worm, but I’m just so stunned this would be the song she’d subconsciously hum.  Therefore, it is my song of the day.  CLICK HERE to hear Rick Asltey sing “Never Gonna Give You Up,” and I promise, I will never ever post it on the Tucson Songstress website ever again.

I am a music teacher for children ages 6-weeks-old - 8th grade. I am also a camp songleader and a Jewish music specialist with and without my husband who is known as Shabbat Scott. We love singing with people of all ages all over Tucson. My "song of the day" idea originally started by playing music challenges on Facebook. I loved choosing songs, and my friends seemed to love reading and listening to my choices. I have decided to continue a daily blog (or as daily as I can manage) and tell you all some stories through some songs that have touched me either in wonderful ways or by annoying the heck out of me. Hope you all enjoy this blog! Happy singing!
