Remember Borders bookstores? When I used to go they had rows and rows of music and you could listen to whole CDs while sipping a latte or whatever. My guilty pleasure was walking to Borders near our house and losing myself in either the book aisles or the music aisles or, on a really good day, all the aisles.
One night I found myself in the International music aisle listening to a a CD called Shake by Zucchero Fornaciari. I hope I spelled that right. He’s an Italian pop star. If Van Morrison and Clarence Clemons got together and had an Italian baby, he might have sounded like Zucchero. My favorite song, and I think his most popular in the U.S., was Baila Morena, but this ballad was also a favorite and tonight it dredged up those days at Borders and some lost scents I thought were well tucked away. I thought you might like it. If you are a movie buff, you might remember that it was featured in the movie Elizabethtown.
Happy Easter, Happy weekend, Ciao
