What is my favorite Wilson Phillips song? Well, to be honest, the only time I listen to Wilson Phillips these days is when one of their songs comes on the radio. And of course their Christmas album. But thinking back to the days when I idolized them beyond compare and wanted to grow up to be a singer so I could be just like them, back then my favorite song was Eyes Like Twins.
Hearing them tonight brought back a ton of memories. I remember most vividly listening to them on the stereo with my mom while we were cleaning the house on Chicago. That was over 20 years ago. There were countless sleepovers where Lindsay and I would dance to their songs. She was always Chynna and I was Wendy, and we took our roles very seriously. When the songs ended, we stayed in character as long as possible, pretending to live the glamorous life of singers. These are little memories that I had forgotten about until the concert tonight, when they all hit me. It was incredible. I felt like my 7-year-old self would have been so happy! Going to this concert is one of the best decisions I've ever made in my entire life. It has been a wonderful night!
