Times in life I needed Dusty

As said before Dusty came in to my life years ago with my parents and their interest of music and so on, but it wasn’t until I in year 2008 saw the show Legends in Las Vegas that I really fell for her. And her music, of course! Her being that interesting person as she was I didn’t realize until maybe 2012. I’ve had a couple of bad times in my life too, not as bad as her but during that times I’ve often thought: what if Dusty had come into my life earlier? I know it sounds weird and you’re probably at home reading this and wondering what this girl is talking about?! But you know how music can really help you? Well, Dusty have really helped me and if I had found her music earlier maybe it would have helped me even more.

I thought I’d give you some examples of when I had been in need of a little Dusty. For example, me being 19 and in love with the hottest guy in school. Oh dear, how I loved him. He had long black hair and the most amazing blue eyes. He later on in fact became my boyfriend and we were dating for almost a year. It wasn’t magic being in a relationship with him but it was magic being hoplessly in love with him in school.

Another time was when I met my future husband. He lived in another city and for a year and a half we had a long distance relationship. I spend so much of my time longing for him and wishing he would be with me. It would have been lovely doing that together with Dusty Springfield music.

Well, I’m just glad I found her as early as I did. I would like to end this update with the amazing lyrics from Dusty’s song ”You don’t have to say you love me”. To me, this song is pure magic and I love it so much.

When I said, I needed you
You said you would always stay
It wasn’t me who changed, but you
And now you’ve gone away

Don’t you see that now you’ve gone
And I’m left here on my own
And that I have to follow you
And beg you to come home

You don’t have to say you love me
Just be close at hand
You don’t have to stay forever
I will understand
Believe me, believe me
I can’t help but love you
But believe me, I’ll never tie you down

Left alone with just a memory
Life seems dead and so unreal
All that’s left is loneliness
There’s nothing left to feel

You don't have to say you love me
