Musical Monday ~ A to Z Songs Of The 70’s (Part 1 – A to G)


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 the first of a four part series titled A to Z Songs of the 70’s. Please leave a song title of your favorite song of the 70’s that starts with the letters A through G in the comments below. You may see your song posted in upcoming blog posts.

  1. Oh, I love Rod Stewart…and so does my mom. I took her to one of his concerts a few years ago for her birthday and we had so much fun! He puts on quite a show 🙂

  2. Here are some favorites:

    Another Girl, Another Planet – The Only Ones
    Baker Street – Gerry Rafferty
    Give Up The Funk – Parliament

  3. The first song that came to my mind that fit this category is “Fooled Around and Fell in Love” by Elvin Bishop. One of my favorite songs ever!
