o/~ It’s My Birthday and I’ll cry if I want to,
I’ll cry if I want to,
You would cry too if it happened to you. o/~
Well, that’s not exactly how Lesley Gore’s heartbreak hit “It’s My Party” goes. Maybe it’s not appropriate to relate my happy and incident-free birthday with this song as they are polar opposites. However, I keep on listening to “It’s My Party” every Birthday since after college. Maybe it’s my anthem of my self-pity party of growing old. Or, that I enjoy the major tonality and the nature of the chorus. I would cry at any party, even if it’s happy or not, right?
Maybe I need to change my birthday theme to this:
o/~ Say hello to all the laughter
Say hello to here and after
‘Cause it’s a new day o/~
