For the Love of Music

Bohemian Rhapsody

The vibration of the seats and the rumbling of the Dolby Digital sound. That is something I will never forget. It was an experience like no other and I have you to thank for that. The excitement in the pit of my stomach, I almost felt nervous when the movie began. Hot tears welled up in my eyes, about as salty as the huge tub of popcorn we split. I’ve never felt so elated in that way in my life. It makes it even better because I got to share that moment with you, Pops. I always feel a sense of importance when I am around you, I just never want to disappoint. When Freddie Mercury made his appearance, jumping up and down, shaking his hands to amp himself up to play Live Aid, I felt it too. I never felt so connected to a character in a movie until this one. His emotions were addicting, just like his personality. I felt like we were there in the crowd, feeling the rush of every single emotion put into one. I have to say, of all the movies in 2018, there is none that could beat Bohemian Rhapsody. “Money may not buy happiness, but it can damn well give it!” Freddie is right, because the gift you gave to me to go and see this movie gave me so much happiness and I want you to know how much I appreciate you because of that. I play Queen at least once a day ever since we saw that movie. Alexa has a great speaker, but it sounds even better coming through the Sony speakers you gave to us as a gift. I love sharing the love of music with you. If I had the money and the time to pursue the hobby you cherish so much, I would. One day, I will. It’s funny how sometimes you don’t realize how you can impact someone’s life. From the day I met you for the first time, you were just so likeable and I’m so glad my Mom finally gets to experience true happiness because of you. I’m glad I’ve become your step daughter and we get along so well. So Pops, thank you. Thank you for coming into my life, sharing the love of music, spending quality time with me, because damnit….”I want it all….”
