when i was really little…

when i was little my most favorite song was George Harrison’s, “Got My Mind Set On You”. i was probably 4 years old and i can still remember it vividly. seriously. my brothers were both in bowling leagues. i remember sitting with my mom, watching my brothers bowl, kick back with a hot chocolate and donut and just dance and sing to this song as it played overhead.

we didn’t have cable back then and today for the very first time, i saw the music video. wow… i’m a little disturbed. but i still LOVE this song. SO much. and thanks to YouTube i got to hear it today, even though seeing the video has permanently scarred me.

think back… what was your favorite song… not as a teen… as a real little kid?  


  1. Crystal, you’re making me feel old. I was in college when that song was popular. But yeah, it was a good one in its day.

    When I was about 7, my brother had a 45 single of “Horse With No Name,” by America. He played it over and over and over and over…and I never got tired of it. Now, when it comes on the oldies station, I’m instantly transported back to the family room where he used to play it on the record player.

  2. Back in the day, I loved me some Carman. Strange, I know. But I was too “addicted to Jesus” to know.

  3. When I was little I was OBSESSED with Michael Jackson. I don’t know why. In my defense, this was before he got weird and all, but Thriller was my favorite. I listened to the RECORD (yes, record) and watched the video which we taped on BETA (yes, beta) over and over.

    Have you heard the Weird Al rendition of your fave, Crystal? “This song is just six words long, this song is just six words long, this song is just six words long…”

  4. erin, yeah i’ve heard that too. and of course weird al has a point. this song is basically the same thing over and over and over, but that is probably the very reason i loved it so much when i was little. easy to sing along with, right? haha.
