Musical Monday ~ Songs About Summer 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 songs that are about summer. Please leave a song title of your favorite song about summer in the comments below. You may see your song posted in upcoming blog posts.

    • When I read this it brought back memories of me trying to tape the songs from the radio…lol I also would get upset when the DJ would say something that would mess up the song.

  1. I still remember jump-roping and warming up to “Summer of ’69” in gym class when I was in elementary school. It might be kind of a weird memory for that song – but it’s always energizing! 🙂
