Music Makes the World Go 'Round


Not that I want to air my dirty laundry, but my honey and I had an argument and I felt like I was right and he thought he was right and for some reason, we just couldn?t come to terms.....

Well for the past four days we?ve been giving each other the cold shoulder and every time we talk, we just end up in a shouting match....... But it's not like us to go so many days arguing.....

I arrived at work and sat and sulked at my desk and pondered what was going on with us.... after one last horrible call and hang up, I actually contemplated stupid things and wondered if we were doing the right thing of being together........ Just then I grabbed my headphones and placed them back in place to continue to enjoy CrazyChuy?s ChicanoExpress show.....

With the argument fresh on my mind, I silently asked God to send me a sign and to tell me what to do...... just then, I heard ?Lo Lindo de Ti? by Los Vidal and I got a bit teary-eyed..... That song has always reminded me of my baby and how beautiful he is and has always been to me.... As the song began...... "Te extra?o mucho mi amor, y me haces falta, no tengo a quien acariciar si no es a ti... el tiempo lejos de ti, me iso adorar te, y ayi mismo comprendi LO QUE TE QUIERO.... Lo lindo de ti, es que me sabes querer, lo bueno de ti, es que me has echo aprender, me hiciste saber, que el amor es muy lindo y muy puro, y si me faltas tu, mi vida seria martirio sin ti....."

I sat a my desk with a lump in my throat, lifeless and filled with emotion. I couldn?t believe I had been such a baby about our LITTLE argument and remembered how beautiful he?s been to me and how much we?ve been through together....... I went to the ladies room and sniffled a bit and came back to my desk....... I picked up the phone and called him. His voice mail came on and I said, ?Baby, call me, I need to talk to you....

I waited a while and decided to do some filing to take the heaviness from my heart and re-direct my thoughts......

Upon returning to my desk, I heard ?Baby I?m for Real? on ChicanoExpress and just sat and sighed.... wondering why my baby hadn?t called me back..... I called again and remembered he would be at the Dr.?s office and that was the reason he didn?t have the phone on...

I began discussing an issue with my boss and had to break away from the ChicanoExpress show and in the background in the oldies station, I heard the song.... Just to be close to you by Lionel Ritchie, the words ?Why don?t you take my hand, oh you and me together yeah, take my hand, oh we?ll spend our lives together forever..... just to be close to you"..... I felt weak in the knees and absolutely touched and as vulnerable as I was feeling, my heart was beaming and pounding with so much sentiment.....

I composed myself and began working at my desk frantically trying to meet a deadline and anxiously awaited Mario to call me back.... All the while trying to concentrate....

In between I heard Al Green..... "I, I?m so in love with you, whatever you want to do is alright with me, cuz you make me feel so brand new and I want to spend my life with you............ Loving you whether times are good or bad, or unhappy, or sad.........."

I was at an all time LOVE high....... As I finished listening to the oldies station, I went back to ChicanoExpress and heard.... ?Por Un Amor? by Johnny Hernandez........

As my heart could stand no more, I went to get a drink of water and returned and placed the earphones back on and heard.....LaLaLa Means I love you....... I thought okay GOD, I asked you for a sign and you?ve basically beat me with one.......

I was getting antsy and began feeling a little shaky as Chuy?s show ended.... I took the headphones off and ?Tell it Like it Is? came on the oldies station and I COULD STAND IT NO LONGER, I wanted to talk to my baby and he wasn?t calling me back....

I picked up my cell and called his phone..... I heard my work phone ring. As I was calling him, he was calling me..... I then hung up the phone to answer the other line and he did the same, I lost the call....... Eeejole, WHAT?S GOING ON!!!!

I picked up my desk phone and started to dial and I heard ?Hello? at the other end of the line, it was him. I said hello and before I could continue he said..... I?m sorry Baby, this is ridiculous, we shouldn?t be arguing like we?ve been..... I replied, no, I?m sorry baby......and let me tell you why....... I began telling him the story as he laughed....

We planned a little lunch together, as a lingering thought crossed my mind....

BE CAREFUL WHEN YOU ASK FOR DEVINE INTERVENTION, GOD might just be waiting on the side lines to teach you a lesson LOL!

As our conversation ended HERE I AM BABY, SIGNED, SEALED DELIVERED, I?M YOURS came on...........

(*SIGH*) I wonder what we would do if our lives DIDN?T revolve around MEANINGFUL MUSIC......

As I walked out the door to greet my baby for lunch, I overheard the last song and caught myself singing, I LOVE YOU BABY, AND IF IT?S QUITE ALRIGHT, I NEED YOU BABY, TO WARM MY LONELY NIGHTS, I LOVE YOU BABY, TRUST IN ME WHEN I SAY....... OH PRETTY BABY......... YOU?RE JUST TO GOOD TO BE TRUE, CAN?T TAKE MY EYES OFF YOU, YOU?RE LIKE HEAVEN TO TOUCH, I WANT TO HOLD YOU SO MUCH........

Don?t you just hate mushy people........hahahahah!!!!

A special thank you to CrazyChuy at ChicanoExpress and 105.5 FM and 1640 AM my local oldies station.... Somehow I think GOD was today?s Program Director....
