Titled for the upbeat tune, I’ve Got the Music in Me”, by The Kiki Dee Band, released in 1974, the year I graduated high school. I imagine this violinist as she dances to be absolutely one with her music. She’s got the music inside her soul and it must be shared.
I heat up (I heat up)
I cool down (I cool down)
I got words in my head so I say them
Don’t let life get me down,
Catch a hold of my blues and just play them
I got the music in me
