Pixie songs

Una mujer de mundo tiene que ser capaz de reaccionar ante la falta brusca de pixie dust. Quedarse sin ello es una de las peores cosas que le pueden suceder a uno en la vida. Me consta que hay quien no sabe lo que es el pixie dust y, lo que es peor, que no lo han experimentado nunca; incluso habrá unos pocos que se sientan capaces de vivir sin ello después de haberlo conocido. En cualquier caso, dudo que sean lectores de este blog.

Cuando se te acaba el polvillo de hadas sientes que te falta el suelo -cómo no- y que caes con una aceleración de 9,8m/s2. Sin embargo, hay que tener recursos ante tan dramática situación. Por si alguien no se acordaba, hay canciones que te pueden hacer volar. I’m gonna buy a paper doll that I can call my own, esa que other fellows cannot steal, por ejemplo. Vivan los Mills Brothers, porque when I come home at night they will be waiting. Siempre.

También puede valer Young at heart por Frank Sinatra, el fantástico That Old Feeling de Guy Lombardo o Let’s all sing like the birdies sing y su tweet-tweet. Pero tengo que volver a los Mills. Aunque el tema de Glow Worm nació dentro de una opereta de Paul Lincke, Mercer readaptó la letra original y en su versión americana fue tremendamente popular en los años 50 del pasado siglo. No me extraña, esta luciérnaga que glimmers, glimmers. Ya no piso tierra. Puf.

A woman of the world must be able to react to any sudden lack of pixie dust. Running out of it, is one of the worst things that can happen to you. I know that some people do not know what pixie dust is, or they have not ever experienced it; there are even a few of them who will feel able to live without it, even knowning what pixie dust is. But I don’t think they will be reading this blog.

When you run out of fairy dust, you can´t feel the floor -of course- and start to fall down with an acceleration of 9.8 m/s2. However, we must do something. Now. Let’s remember that there are songs that can make you fly. I’m gonna buy a paper doll that I can call my own, that other fellows can not steal it, for example. Long live the Mills Brothers, because when I come home at night they will be waiting. Always.

You can also use Young at heart by Frank Sinatra, the fantastic That Old Feeling by Guy Lombardo or Let’s all sing like the birdies sing and the tweet-tweet. But I have to go back to the Mills. Although the theme of Glow Worm was part of Paul Lincke’s operetta, Mercer readjusted the original lyrics and its American version was very popular in the 50s of the last century. No wonder, that glow worm glimmers, glimmers. I’m taking off. Wow.
