OK… so tonight I went to my first pop/rock concert in, well… a LONG LONG TIME.
Tonight I saw the group Berlin. I didn’t know many of their songs, only their one big hit which was a major son in the film Top Gun, and I was drug there against my will by my uncle who is a raging 80’s music LOVER. Despite my insistence that I was just doing this as a favor, I am happy to report that I had a fabulous time watching this live performance.
I’m not one of those “floor” people. I don’t want to be close. I don’t want to feel like I have to interact with and support the artist during every moment, even if it isn’t good. But I love being in the room and feeling the ebb and flow of the energy of live performance.
What I thought was going to be a “has-been” concert turned out to be a great musical experience. All these years later, Terry Nun’s (sp?) voice has retained it’s impeccable quality. She was spot on all night long, and she sang a good hour and 1/2 set.
If you’re feeling blue, go see a live performance of something. (preferably something good) It made me feel good tonight.
