Musical Monday: Don't You Want Me

Fourteen-year-old Scotty couldn't speak, was blind in one eye, deaf in one ear, needed a daily enema to move his bowels, was severely mentally challenged, and basically couldn't do much but sit in his wheel chair waiting for a fresh diaper and a spoon full of soft food that he would spill out of his mouth as he tried to chew; however, when Don't You Want Me by The Human League sang over the radio, he'd light up like a glow worm. Not only will I forever remember Scotty's bright smile and gurgling sounds over this song, but I still think of him whenever I hear it. Here's to a special boy, hopefully turned man, Scotty.

What a lovely tribute to a special person :-)

Brilliant choice Joyce (that rhymed), not long ago there was a documentary on TV about The Human League on TV here it was quite interesting.

Scotty has great taste in music. I loved that song back in the 80's, too!

Rory Bore said...

that is so sad, but yet wonderful story of how music has the power to move us: no wonder our abilities in life. we just have to open up and allow it

Marie Moody said...

Oh yes, you are a special person too to put such a tribute to that child. I wonder what it was that he loved so much about this song unless it was the beat do you think? Whatever it was at least there was something that made him happy & didn't need help with. Enjoying music! Thanks for sharing.
