Okay. I got married 40 years ago, I’m still married, and I have no plans to get married again. So when it comes to choosing “a song [I’d] love to be played at [my] wedding,” let’s go tongue-in-cheek with a song that no woman I know would love to be played at her wedding, Neil Diamond’s “Solitary Man.”
Today’s Daily Addictions one-word prompt is “solitary.” When I saw that prompt, I knew that I would do what I’m about to do, and that is to post one of my favorite songs by Neil Diamond.
I didn’t get married until I was 32 because I wanted to wait until I could find me a girl who’d stay and wouldn’t play games behind me. Until I did, I would stay what I was: a solitary man. And then I met the future Mrs. Fandango.
So many prompts, so little time
I wasn’t able to get around to writing a post today that used all of the other daily prompts, including my own, “parking.” Hopefully I’ll get back on track tomorrow.
I’ve written several posts lately that are based upon songs I’d grown up with. When I saw today’s one-word prompt, “solitary,” I was reminded of yet another such song, Neil Diamond’s “Solitary Man.” The refrain of that song goes:
Don’t know that I will but until I can find me
A girl who’ll stay and won’t play games behind me
I’ll be what I am
A solitary man
I didn’t get married until I was 32, which, back in the day, was considered to be old.
But then I met a girl who I knew would stay and not play games behind me. We married. I am no longer a solitary man.
