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 from motion pictures. Please leave a song title of your favorite motion picture song in the comments below. You may see your song posted in upcoming blog posts.

The Main Event
I like Streisand’s Main Event too, but I voted for It Must Have Been Love. by Roxette.
I like most of Barbra Streisand’s songs. Thank you for voting : )
There are some real classics here. That one from Mannequin is quintessential late 1980’s…
I’m starting to notice that my age has something to do with the songs I choose…lol. I asked my daughter to give me some songs from movies of recent years so that I can seem a little more modern : ) I remember seeing the movie Mannequin.
It was difficult only to choose one today, there are so many great songs to choose between 😀
I wouldn’t be able to only choose one of these songs either : ) Thanks for stopping by Irene.
Nice collection of songs! I love that you sing in a store when you hear a song you like. 🎵 🎶
You should see the way some of the people look at me in the store…lol Thanks for stopping by!
I love My Heart Will Go On and the Dirty Dancing song, I also love Sull Aria from the prison in Shawshank Redemption
Although I did see the movie Shawshank Redemption I don’t remember there being a song. I will definitely have to check it out. Thanks for stopping by!
Some great memories here!
