Bus Story: The Lounge and the Darkness

July 13, 2010

It is Such a Monday looking at the exhausted faces of the riders. Then a truly snore-worthy bus ride is transformed by Dean Martin singing “Cha Cha Cha d’Amour” in my ears. These tunes always bring to mind movies like “Parents” – and the hip, finger-snapping sounds make me look at each rider and wonder what terrible secrets lie within each passenger. What is it about those tunes that does this? It’s not just the movie association I think. The tunes of that era have a cheery exterior, but often in minor keys with rather dark lyrics. Or it’s me. Oh gosh no. Let’s say it’s the tune shall we? Yes let’s.
