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 with an animal in the title. Please leave your favorite song with the name of an animal in the title in the comments below. You may see your song posted in upcoming blog posts. Also please take the poll at the end of this post.

Tiger Feet (Mud – did they cross the Atlantic?)
Hi Anabel. I just listened to this song and never heard it before. Seems it was released in 1974, a time when I was always listening to the radio. They could have made it across the Atlantic but somehow I never heard them : )
I had a hard time choosing between Puff and Cats in the Cradle. Great theme–I look forward to these posts!
Glad that you like these posts : ) Thank you for taking the time to stop by to listen and comment. It’s much appreciated.
Great list! I didn’t like “Muskrat Love” anyway… XD
If I had remembered Muskrat Love I would have posted it…lol I think it’s already been in a Musical Monday post. Take care!
I don’t know if I listen to any songs that have had an animal in the title. I have never really paid attention but I sure will now.
I don’t think there are a lot of songs with an animal in the title. It was hard to find 10 to post. Thank you for stopping by! Take care.
Reblogged this on An Array Of Blogs.
Awesome collection, Cheryl! I’d add “Nighting Gale,” by Norah Jones. “The Lion Sleeps Tonight” is a song I sang to my kids at bedtime.
Thanks Eli. Norah Jones was one of my mother’s favorite singers. Have you ever seen this commercial…lol https://youtu.be/mFpkjX3yeRM
Hi Cheryl, I nominated you for an award, you are not obligated to participate but hope you accept it because I find your blog unique. https://eddaz.com/2016/07/27/one-lovely-blog-award/
Thank you for the nomination! I accept and will try to have this done by the end of this weekend : )
Thank you so much for accepting 😊
You’re welcome. Thank you for the nomination!
Cheryl, I absolutely LOVED this post as I too am addicted to music. When we were in our house, I would dance to the music while cooking, or as you do bounce around in my computer chair when I’m at the computer. Sadly, now that we are in a small apartment my music interrupts my husband in his office. Plus, I might disturb the people upstairs, although I think they like music too. Now, my music time is in my car as I’m driving everywhere. I enjoyed this post! Thanks!
Speaking of music, here’s a Happy Birthday song after the fact (sorry I’m a few days late). 🙂
So I have been MIA for a long time and didn’t see this message until now. What a cute video. Thank you so much for thinking of me!
