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.

Great idea–I loved watching and hearing these! Thanks for sharing!
I had fun with this post. Thank you for reading and taking the time to comment!
Speed Racer. I could sing that one all day. Especially when some idiot little tricked-out Subaru or Mitsubishi comes flying down my residential street. I sing it at them mockingly.
The theme song for Speed Racer is a catchy tune. I have been known to refer to those driving too fast as Speed Racer myself.
Wow, I couldn’t decide between Speed Racer and Kimba. I remember all the others too, but Speed Racer was my favorite cartoon. I remember coming home from school and watching them both.
I came home directly from school to watch. I believe it came on at 4 PM.
