When Carrie Anne N found Hanson part one
. May 10 1997
I found Hanson in very questionable place . My uncle had died less than 9 months earlier and he was just beginning to support my dream of singing . In fact our Final conversation w him was making Mariah Carey Jokes and the expensive coffee when he worked in computers in New York City . My Uncle Richard was like Vintage Isaac Hanson . he was Into music , Electric Guitars , computers and virtually any thing that communicated or made noise . In fact the first I heard Middle of Nowhere I was riding in a car visiting his kids for the first time after his death . I had nothing to say to the then 2 , 8 and 11 year old that would eventually sit before me . I didn't know what kind of Pain he was in because he never told us in the family . Enter Hanson
Of course I had heard Mmmbop on the Radio by now . it was a fun catchy song .but it wasn't until my Ben introduced me to Hanson's other music that I realized Ike, Taylor ( always be my favorite ) , and Zac had something more to say that just a couple of Mmms and a Bop . This song was about the passage of minutes and time . to be precise Millimeters of time . The fast uptempo pace of the song clearly communicates that time is precious and time goes by way to fast .
Where's the Love ? the Second single from Middle of Nowhere reminds me of my me and mother . Taylor always reminds me that love is more than arguing . always .
Weird is very Close to my heart . .
"Weird" is also a turning point for me for the same reason .i never fit in at school because of said disability and now I never stand out as an adult who's qualified to do the job that some one with the same mental abilities can do just without the physical disabilities . I struggle with this but I'm getting a lot better . I actually talked to Taylor and managed to barely stutter this past time ! :)
Yearbook is my 2nd Favorite Taylor vocal performance ever . thats only because Never Let go and Never Love again finally blow it out of the water .
I could write a whole book about " I will Come to you " this song has comforted me more times that I can count . which is why singing it Taylor means the universe to me . Taylor;s voice has always been my happy place , my place of truth , release of emotion for sure ( I'm surprise d I didn't cry 1 iota during his solo show at BTTI . ) ; my place to be inspired by the fact that Hanson never gave up on their passion of music . he's kinda like the voice that has always been there for me no matter what . Ive never told him that in person , but maybe someday i'll get to .
With you in your dreams- I Couldn't help but think of Dr Patton this past acoustic performance at BTTI . he would be so proud of all I'm doing because he called it first . he would want me to keep fighting for my potential to be as normal as possible .
until Later Days . part two will be about this time around .
