Immediately after hearing the assignment, my mind goes to the ditty by first recorded by Little Richard, "Good Golly Miss Molly." Indeed, some people think of me as Miss Molly, and a few people that I know always, always greet me as "Good Golly Miss Molly." I also considered other tunes that mention my name such as Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da. You know the song where Molly was a singer in the band. I consider another oldtime, "Molly" tune, My Blue Heaven. The song by Frank Sinatra not the more modern version by Taking Back Sunday. The song where old blue eyes crooned.
You'll see a smilin' face, a fireplace, a cozy room Little nest that nestles
where the roses bloom Molly and me, and the baby makes three We're happy in
my, in my Blue Heaven.
I think of other titles that I want to represent my image such as "You Light up My Life" (Okay, probably not), "Fame" you know (I'm gonna live forever.) Songs that represent part of my existence such as "She Blinded Me with Science" by Thomas Dolby (I teach science to seventh graders) or The Eagles "Witchy Woman" (I tell my students that I am a witch, and I rather like the lyrics, "Raven hair, Ruby Lips, sparks fly from her finger tips.") Another top contender for my song choice is "Lean on Me", and from time to time I offer support for others, but maybe the best support is encouraging people to stand on their own. For my final song choice, I am not sure if people think of me when they of the following song, but I would be honored if they did.
