Ever walked into the house and your partner starts to sing for you?
Well, that happened to me this morning .
I returned from a short visit to Patricia, when I walked into the living room Rob started to sing with a big smile on his face…
“If you were the only girl in the world
And I were the only boy
I would say such wonderful things to you
There would be such wonderful things to do
If you were the only girl in the world
And I were the only boy…”
I recognized the song, but I had no clue how he got that song. With a big smile he explained it.
He was looking for something on the internet, when he ran by coincidence into this picture…
This is the cover a vinyl long play record. It is the recording of a show done by the Dutch artist Rudi Carell. The show is about how he is stranded on an uninhabited island.
The show is recorded in 1964, so Rob was around 1 year old and I was not even born. So it was not that Rob can remember this show.
Rob’s parents owned this vinyl record and he loved it. He must have heard it many times. So even that he knows the lyrics of all the songs by heart. That even after all that time and that it has been for many years out of his active memories.
He searched on the Internet and found recordings of the show and we watched those together. And I have to admit that I had some good laughs. And laughing together is even better. I placed these recording below at the end of this article (and sorry, the show is mostly in Dutch).
What I really like is that Rob can be so deeply happy over such a relative simple thing! His mood was really enjoyable and that made the weekend even better as it already was.
