Goldie's Last Day

PFR. I loved this group in college. Loved. They did not have a song I didn't love (at the time they didn't have many songs at all) but Goldie's Last Day is the only one I remember. I mean really remember. I remember the tune, I remember the words, I remember the moment you realize that the song is not what you think.

(If you have not heard the song, I still have the tape. Yes, I said tape.)

I was just typing my last post and the kids' radio was on across the hall. It was just barely background noise. I hardly noticed it at all, I was deep in thought (see last post). Until. I heard a tune that shattered my concentration. I stopped mid-thought and strained to listen. It could't be. My seriousness melted immediately and I just smiled. An old familiar song. I never expected to ever hear it on the radio again but there it was.

I tried to get my focus back on task. With a big cheesy grin still on my face, I read again the verse I was about to post "He also set eternity in the hearts of men."

Hmmm. I wonder if heaven will be familiar?
