Tune in Tuesday: Lenny Kravitz Baby It Ain’t Over Till It’s Over

I love me some Lenny Kravitz.  I remember playing this song repeatedly  during the  first summer that I moved out.  I know that it is all about breaking up but for me it will always remind me about travelling all over Toronto, revelling in my freedom for the very first time.  I remember sitting in coffee shops with my walkman and rewinding this song over and over (yes I know I just dated myself). Lenny and I discovered freedom together and I was unafraid because he was by my side. 

Incidentally, the first concert that I ever went to was also a Lenny Kravitz.   Not only is the man incredibly talented, he is sexy as all hell.  It was the best 100 bucks that I have ever spent.  Lenny reminds me of my youth and innocence.  It was a time when I was unafraid to take risks.  I often leaped and thought about consequences later.   Today I am far to practical to make the same decision is made a scant 1_  years ago (nope you are not getting anymore clues as to my age)  but Lenny will always bring me back to a time when I was willing to risk all.

Okay, your turn.. If you have any specific memories of this song, or even Lenny Kravitz, share them in the comments section.  Music marks time for us and it is amazing the way that a few notes can take us back in time.
