Musical Monday ~ New Year Songs 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.

This week I am posting New Year Songs….Please leave a song title that is your favorite New Year song in the comments below. You may see your song posted in upcoming blog posts.

  1. I didn’t even know there were that many New Year’s songs! I didn’t listen to all of them. The only other one that comes to mind is Barry Manilow’s “It’s Just another New Year’s Eve.”
    Happy New Year. All the things you write about music are so true. I teach piano lessons, play piano, have visited nursing homes/memory units, and witnessed people coming alive when they hear the music.
