The Jukebox

When I was little, I loved going down to my grandparents basement to play the jukebox. I had never heard a single song played anywhere else but there. I was born with a love for music. I sang in competitions and played piano for a short time. I was a member of our school choir. I love musicals and my parents used to buy the musical score books so I could sing along (usually with my sister). Music can connect me to a memory and change my mood in an instant. I have a great ear for music, I can pick out a song the first time I hear it and can tell if it will be a hit or not.

I do nothing in my adult life that has to do with music, aside from random karaoke and sing-a-longs in the car. I don't have the nerves to sing in front of strangers anymore. A lot has changed. But I won't forget how as a kid, playing song after song on the jukebox kept me more than entertained.
