Hungry Eyes – here’s lookin’ at you! The assignment for this week of the workshop (Finding Your Voice –Sylvie Lansdowne on Facebook) was to choose any song and make a bead the was inspired by this song. I had a difficult time choosing a song!
In the end, I chose “Hungry Eyes” sung by Eric Carmen; it was in the movie Dirty Dancing. This song is neither my favorite, nor does it have any special meaning to me. However, when I was explaining the assignment to my husband in Steak ‘n Shake, this song started plaing on their XM radio. Hmm, I had a comment about my prior bead that it looked almost like eyes. There it was; I had a song. As a total aside, I discovered that this song was recorded in Beachwood, Ohio – not too terribly far from where I live!
I can see where I can make improvements to this bead, but the rules of the workshop are quite explicit – make one bead, and that is the one to post. You can make more, but the first one is the workshop bead.
Now that I made the bead, it brought back a memory. When I was young, there was a drive in restaurant called the Hungry I in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio. I loved going there! They had a signature burger – the “I”. It was a lot like a Big Mac, but it predated that sandwich by at least a decade, and was much juicier. It was delivered hot and juicy to your car in a paper wrapper with an olive on a toothpick skewered into the burger. Maybe I can start a “Tribute to the Hungry I” series.
