88/365: The Song That Changed My Gloomy Mood and Became My LSS

29th of March 2014

I was working overtime on a weekend that my mood was so gloomy plus that I’m not feeling that good due to the current back pain that I ‘m experiencing.  In short what I was feeling really sucks!  Whoops! sorry for the language but I can’t think of any other term but “suck”. Whoops again!

If I could just make myself a super-machine or grab a magic wand to instantly finish what I’m working on so I can go home.  Or if what I’m working on is not needed I would rather crumple in bed and rot. I mean rest. Though sometimes I call myself a “Super Woman” there are really this kind of time that I tell myself that I am  just human.

The surroundings does not help as well as there are few people around doing same (stupid) heroic act that I’m doing. We are wearing the same faces that says “I wanna go home!” 

Then someone from another department came in, set up his desk and went straight to the centralized music player.  Suddenly I heard something that I haven’t heard for ages but is definitely my favorite.  The music immediately took me out of my gloomy mood, loosen my uptight nerve and sort of ease my back pain a bit!  In just some seconds I was discreetly humming the song. 

When the song ended there was a short pause and to my surprise the song was playing again and someone is singing along with gusto!  This person really likes this song I thought. 

I curiously peeked to check who’s the other soul on this work place who knows this song except for me and saw a familiar face of a singing young guy (that I don’t know personally or by name).  When he saw that I sort of  checking curiously he immediately said “Ooops sorry I thought….”

“No it’s fine it’s a great song” was my reply.

Actually what I’d like to say was “No it’s fine you actually did me a favor when you played that song.  Which is so true because I really love the melody and the lyrics of this song.

It feels so good to suddenly hear your favorite song unexpectedly .  I am also amused that a younger person seems to love the song by heart.

I bet most of you does not know this song ha ha! I intentionally did not include the song title and the singer here – it’s up to you to find it out.  But you need to agree with me that the lyrics is great and sort of mysterious.

♫ Well I tried to make it Sunday, but I got so damn depressed
That I set my sights on Monday and I got myself undressed
I ain't ready for the altar but I do agree there's times
When a woman sure can be a friend of mine
Well, I keep on thinkin' 'bout you, Sister Golden Hair surprise
And I just can't live without you; can't you see it in my eyes?
I been one poor correspondent, and I been too, too hard to find
But it doesn't mean you ain't been on my mind
Will you meet me in the middle, will you meet me in the air?
Will you love me just a little, just enough to show you care?
Well I tried to fake it, I don't mind sayin', I just can't make it
Well, I keep on thinkin' 'bout you, Sister Golden Hair surprise
And I just can't live without you; can't you see it in my eyes?
Now I been one poor correspondent, and I been too, too hard to find
But it doesn't mean you ain't been on my mind
Will you meet me in the middle, will you meet me in the air?
Will you love me just a little, just enough to show you care?
Well I tried to fake it, I don't mind sayin', I just can't make it
Doo wop doo wop ...♫”
And so I went home from work singing this song… until now.

  4. There are moments talaga when suddenly unexpected people or situation will lighten up the disengaging mood in us. God, really works in mysterious ways ika nga - that He will really rescue you from being gloomy and will give you reason to convert that sad face into a happy face. God is amazing indeed!
