This is my second post in over a year, I've been quite absent from posting and hopefully I will get back to it on a more frequent basis from now on.  What brought me back was a rather silly idea, today, September 23, is the official first day of spring over here in the Southern Hemisphere.  As those of you who follow or have read my blog at one point know, every thought that crosses my mind is usually linked to some sort of music, so the inevitable happened: spring = Donna Summer's Spring Affair.

I have to admit this is a very recent musical discovery, considering I've been listening to Donna Summer since the 80's, but somehow this song escaped me, and I believe I heard it about a year ago for the first time.  Shame on me, I know, and like many of my discoveries, it came by way of the one the only Queen Of Pop.  I downloaded a mash-up of Secret and this song from Madonnarama and it was then that I fell in love with it.
It's funny how the brain works.  One thing immediately connects with the other.  Now that I was watching this video and especially this version  the following happened:  Spring -> Donna Summer.  Donna Summer's hair -> Maricarla Boscono at Viktor & Rolf's UH-MAZING Spring 2003 show.  Oh-so-spring-y.  Almost 10 years ago.  Wow.  I must have posted about this before, but here it goes anyway.  Mariacarla at 0:25.  Enjoy.
