Duet with a stranger! Well, sort of.

Was coming back from Target this morning. Still haven’t replaced the car stereo that was stolen last Halloween (eternal thanks to the Dopers who helped replace the CDs that were also stolen!) so I was fully able to hear the driver to the right of me, singing along with his radio/CD player/whatever.

Didn’t take more than a moment for me to recognize the song: “I’m Sailiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiing Awayyyyyyyyyyyyyyy” by Styx. Light turned red, I stopped and waited for the appropriate moment to lean to my right and join in with “To cAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAry on!”

Now, if it had been a movie, he would have acknowledged me, and we would have sung in harmony all the way down the street. As it is, I don’t think he even heard me. But I kept up for as long as I could remember the words: “A gathering of angels appeared above my head/They something something and this is what they said/They said, Come sail away, come sail away, come sail away with me…”

Heehee! I forget exactly which South Park episode featured that song, but ever since, I cannot hear it without singing along. And laughing!
