Do you ever knock on wood when someone states a very favorable observation? I know that I do, I wonder is this done all over the world? Let me know!
In my teenage years, it was very popular in Conyers to go roller skating and our local rink was Duvall's Skating Rink and Ken Duvall played the best music. One of the songs was "Knock On Wood" and it was great to skate along with that one....when it got to the part of the song where the singer says, "Knock on wood"...as we were skating, we would raise one skate and bang it down on the wooden floor in time to those knocks! It sounded really good with a large group of skaters! It is a great song. And you know I found it here for you! The song was written by Steve Cropper (who I have written about before!) and Eddie Floyd, who is the singer of the song. What a great voice! And I see that he is still performing and making music. His latest album was released in 2013, "Down By The Sea", which is a good reason for me to have photo of the beach. (From Eastbourne, East Sussex in England.)
So tell me, do you knock on wood? And does hearing a song sometimes bring back a memory so sharp and vivid that it startles you in its intensity?
