Pleasant Surprise!!
I am getting things ready on a cool Saturday morning for our Christmas trip to Florida, and was listening and watching when I could to a recent Sheryl Crow concert. She finished up with Steve McQueen, one of my favorites of hers. It got over about 12:25 p.m. on Polladia and next up was Kid Rock. I am not a big fan of his so I got up to go back to packing, when I heard a familiar beginning to a song, so I turned around and it was Shania's "God Bless The Child" video. So, I sat back down again and watched and listened until it was over and Kid Rock came on. Then it was back to packing.

As I watched the video, which I have always loved how it was done, and how much emotion she put into it making you believe she is so into what she is singing, a touch of sadness came over me. I am sad because we have had no songs with messages from her in such a long time, and right now, it seems like it may still be a long time, so it was very nice and a pleasant surprise to see something Shania, and such a good experience at that.

I think Polladia is doing some Christmas videos in between concerts, so maybe that was it. I know GBTC has been referred to and played in the past as a Christmas song, but in any event, I thank them for playing it. :)

I guess you could say I have played the heck out of my "Woman In Me, the UK version. I love the bonus tracks. Now it seems it will no longer play in my CD player in my car. It skips over the songs and only plays a couple. I will make once more attempt to clean it, but I can pick another copy up at Amazon for about $10. Not bad since when this was out, it cost me $32. hehe

Okay, so it took me a year +2 months, but I have ordered a new copy of the WIM/UK. I had it loaded to my pc, and burned a copy, but it's not the same as having the original. One big difference this time is the cost. When I found the first one in a Rhode Island music store back in 1999, I paid about $32 for it. This time it cost me $10.58. HEY1 I don't care though. I would have paid $32 again if that's what it would take. It's a great version and has the bonus tracks and video of GBTC. ;)

The UPS guy just brought my new WIM UK. Looks identical to the one I've had all these years. Gotta play it soon to make sure it is ok.
