Sunday Song: Story Time

Four makes a story, in a place I wasn’t looking. But I’m always looking, even when I think I’m not (apparently).

Sunday Song - ParayAfter finally waking from a YouTube coma, brought on my endless gloomy gray clouds on Saturday, I put on a song I knew would put more pep in my step. Several tunes later, I felt alive again and decided to spend some time being creative.

I wandered into WordPress to write this post. Four hours later, I’m finally getting to it. The time that passed found me tinkering with my site, including adding a new widget to the bottom. It’s a playlist! This site, if any site I visit does, needs a playlist! As the great poet Kiki Dee once said, I’ve got the music in me, and so I added it to the site.

Create a playlist, it said, not knowing which computer I was using, ergo which songs were on tap to be added. I instinctively chose four that appealed to me from the library I had at my fingertips. I moved one in front of the other and… lookee there. They make a little story!

First up: Wash Me Clean by k.d. lang, because sometimes you don’t want what you want and you need it out of your system.

Then: Where I Stood by Missy Higgins, about needing to let someone go, having someone else take your place, and being OK with that.

Then: Not the Doctor by Alanis Morissette, a list of who she is and isn’t, what she’ll tolerate and what she won’t, and why.

Then: I Believe in Love by Indigo Girls, about two people working through, together, because despite their differences… love.

It’s not exactly my story, but it’s a story. And I love that I found that story poking around a totally different creative endeavor. Now, back to writing…


What is Sunday Song? Well, I’m a musical gal, from taking piano and drum lessons as a kid to my current stint in a choir. My listening to music is what going to church is for some, so I celebrate with Sunday Song. I post a song that’s on repeat for the week or that reflects what’s happening in my world, with a wee story why.

  1. I rarely use YouTube, but when I do I’ve found it can suck you down the rabbit hole faster than anything I’ve ever seen. Glad you made it back out to post this.

    1. Yep. That happens to me more often than I’d like to admit. This past one topped off with a WordPress wormhole, but that was fun as I redesigned and added doohickeys, etc. I will use this Story Song playlist to entertain myself when I feel the urge to disappear into YouTube…. that’ll keep me out of the wormhole, methinks. Thanks for stopping by!
