A bunch of us were sitting in a coma-like condition on the floor of the hallway, when my friend J.C. and I started singing Marvin Gaye’s new version of Heard It Through The Grapevine. It was like a miracle. We were revived by that song and ended up leading a chain of sick coeds around the floor paying tribute to Marvin. Best medicine ever. We were having so much fun, we took it down to the second floor and got these gals to get out of their sick beds to join us. Finally the first floor, then in our jammies and running fevers, we donned our coats and braved the December night to serenade the whole campus. By the time we got to the President’s house and woke up his whole family, we switched to more traditional Christmas carols, then back to Marvin Gaye. So this video reminds me of how great music can sound in an institutional hallway with people willing to have a laugh. Good times.
I can’t stop myself. This one never gets old. Almost 8 million people can’t be wrong.
Oh, I can’t leave this one out of the mix.
And who knew the brilliant dancer Gene Kelly was a Beatlemaniac.
OK, here’s the guy that wrote the song. See you 8 till 10 Sunday mornings…Breakfast With The Beatles. We’re known to get a bit goofy there too. Why not? Life goes on, bra!
