The Daily Post – Daily Prompt: Strut
There are certain songs you hear and it will strike a chord with you. Pun most definitely and fully intended. Whether it matches your current mood, or it even begins to speak to you by telling you a story that is conveyed through a day dream.
You never forget when you hear that song for the first time and it resonates with you perfectly. You remember exactly how you feel, and that exact feeling is conjured up every time.
This song was one of them. Cissy Strut by The Meters was a song I discovered from the movie R.E.D. After a bit of research, I found the song that had forced me to perk up after an average day and my love for funk had just begun.
When I first heard the full version of this song without the distraction of the movie happening at the same time, I remember stopping everything I was doing including pausing the movie. I just sat there, unable to move as this song just drove itself deep into my core relaxing it every which way it was possible to relax. Nothing could be wrong. Nothing could go wrong.
Use headphones and listen to it as you go about your day, as it fits perfectly for a personal soundtrack.
It is a pleasure for me to be able to share this music. I hope it hits you in the same way it did for me.
