Musical Monday ~ Giving Thanks 1


largenotes
Welcome to Musical Monday! Music has been known to affect our emotions. Listening to music can make us happy or sad, relaxed or motivated, put us to sleep or make us want to dance. Music absolutely plucks at our heartstrings bringing to the surface a multitude of emotions.

Someone once described music to me as a time machine. When we listen it often transports us back to a place in time. A certain song can bring back feelings of someone we loved, our wedding day, someone who died, or any of the many important times in our lives.

Music has always been a big part of my life. When I am sad listening to a sad song often allows me to release that sadness. Happy songs tend to take away my sadness. It has helped motivate me to do housework. Yep, just crank up the radio or a music television station and I’m good to go. Warning: Be careful not to turn your music up too loud though. I have actually blown out the speakers in a television once doing this.

I have been known to start singing in a store when a song that I like comes on, I tend to sing along with songs while I am driving, and it isn’t unusual to see me moving to the music in my computer chair as I sit and listen to music.

I would like to thank my Facebook friends and family who have helped me by giving me their song suggestions.

This week I am posting songs that are about giving thanks….Please leave a song title that is your favorite giving thanks song in the comments below.

  1. Great post, Cheryl. I think Barry Manilow has a great thank-you song, though I can’t remember much of it. I agree on the importance of music. I am a huge music fan, and listen daily, though I’m not crazy about studio-manufactured music. I like music that involves a band, real sound. It’s emotionally satisfying and of course, fun.
