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 some of the hits of 1992. Please leave a song title of your favorite hit of 1992 in the comments below. You may see your song posted in upcoming blog posts.

Seems my vote puts me in good company! Happy Monday 🙂
Unfortunately, my computer doesn’t have sound at the moment so i couldn’t play the songs but voted for Moriah Carey.
I loved what you said about music being a time machine. So true.
The other night, I attended a local music showcase for the local high schools and a girl sang “Chandelier” while playing on a grand piano. I have loved this song and related to the swinging from the Chandelier part and she had me on the brink of tears. I felt like I’d been turned inside out and all those raw, unexpressed emotions had been set free. That is the power of music.
I hope you get the sound working in your computer soon. I’ve had that problem before. Music certainly has the power to turn on our emotions.
I was listening to these songs as I was catching up on my blog reading. Thanks for bringing back some wonderful memories – and for posting my very fave song of that year, Life is a Highway. 🙂
I almost didn’t include Life is a Highway but I’m glad that I did. You’re not the only one who has mentioned liking that song. Glad you enjoyed the music!
Nice blog, I am a huge music lover too!
Thank you. I often wonder if there are people who don’t enjoy music. Can’t image that there are.
I love this, really brought back some memories of some catchy tracks! I’ve gone for En Vogue as it’s so catchy and instantly 90s, but it’s a hard choice 🙂
There were some great hits in the 90’s. En Vogue is a great choice.
