Over My Head, I Hear Music in the Air

I came across the following video on youtube (is a choir from Ireland, I believe) and got the song "Over My Head, I Hear Music in the Air" stuck in my head. It's one we sing in my church sometimes (not nearly often enough!) I love it, it really does fill me with joy to sing it. Out loud. Some of the people in my building give me really strange looks when I walk around singing or humming...I mentioned that to a friend once and he said ignore them, obviously they don't have music in their souls. Excellent advice!

I couldn't remember all the real words, so just made up my own, singing about what makes me hear music in the air and fills me with joy. I flipped an email to Valerie, because I knew she would recognize the song...I'll share our email exchange because it kind of cracked me up:

[Me] PS - our friendship makes me sing "Over my head...I hear music in the air...there must be a God somewhere" ♥

[Valerie] there definately is... dido

[Me] dido? should I know what that means?

[Valerie] It means that I echo those same sentiments with regards to our friendship

[Me] Ahhh...I get it now. Was pronouncing it in my head as "Dye-doh". (Who was a woman from Greek mythology...also a singer that Sara listens to...) Just the way you wrote the whole phrase, I thought maybe it was also an obscure reference to God's existence or something! Funny.

[Valerie] okay, that is too funny :)

My dear friend is a woman of many talents...spelling, however, is definitely not one of them! :) Of course, I realize it's blindingly obvious now that she meant "ditto", but in my defence she is a minister, after all, and references to God actually are part of her everyday language...that's my excuse anyway!

Hi Anne, cool song and video. Makes my Friday morning. Now I'm going to have that in my head during my commute to work....

Btw, I thought the dido-ditto e-mail conversation was cute.

Thanks for sharing the video and song and have a great weekend!


Hey Kathy, it's a great song to have in your head, isn't it? Yeah, I am still chuckling over the dido-ditto thing...a prime example of my over-thinking tendency hard at work! lol

Enjoy your weekend, too!! :)
