Day 12: Songs stuck in your head...

Bertie-HigginsbwToday my assignment was to reveal to the world the song that is currently running through my head.

For most, this would be a silly, fun sort of question; one typically answered with an embarrassed giggle and the muttering of some trashy pop song that you can’t seem to get off of your after you overheard it while on your lunch break or something.

But for me it is a source of great shame…

For I have had a song running through my head since as long as I can remember…

And it is not the kind of song that one would expect…

Like anyone else, I have lots of songs bouncing around my skull at all times.

But when my mind goes quiet, there has been a set of lyrics I have heard in my mind over and over and over again…

We had it all/ Just like Bogie and Bacall/ Starring in our own late, late show/ Sailing away to Key Largo…”

I can remember singing it to myself while running laps during my youth soccer days…

I can recall humming it to myself while trying to keep my cool in the bathroom of this chick’s house before her and I made the sex…

I can even recall whistling it while waiting on the nurses to come get me in order to witness the birth of my daughter.

To think, despite the fact that for whatever reason this song had managed to imprint itself to my psyche (there is a part of me that feels this might have been the first song that ever caught my ear as a child and I seem to have held it close ever since…), up until this moment I had no idea that a man named Bernie Higgins ever existed, let alone made a few shekels in the recording industry. And here I am, perhaps his single biggest fan.

Higgins, “Key Largo”…


Oh, and pay particular attention to the way that Bernie takes that opening puff on a cigarette…

Within that drag we know everything we will ever need to know about the 10 inch swinging dick that is Bernie Higgins…
