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.

A couple more: “Heaven is In Your Mind” by Three Dog Night and “My Blue Heaven,” by many, including Fats Domino. Great list! “Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door” was a Dylan tune; he did it for the movie “Pat Garrett and Billy The Kid,” if I remember correctly. Fantastic soing no matter who does it, and I’m not much of a Dylan fan…
I was never a fan of Dylan myself, but I always liked Knockin’On Heaven’s Door.
I was going to vote for Tears until I saw Stairway. No question. Best rock n’ roll song of all time.
Stairway to Heaven has always been an extremely popular song.
Great songs Cheryl and I found it difficult this time 🙂
Thanks Irene. There are so many great songs that it is often hard to choose just one. Take care!
Tavares!! Love Los Lonely Boys and “Too Much Heaven” brings sweet memories, but I HAVE TO vote for Rhode Island’s group, Tavares, a bunch of guys from East Providence. ❤️🎶❤️
WOW, I grew up in Massachusetts and never knew that the members of Tavares came from East Providence!
You probably need to be a classic jazz lover like me to appreciate this HEAVEN song:
Never heard this song before but love it! I love all kinds of music. Thank you for sharing : )
A great list – love them all- Tavares were always guaranteed to get people on to the dance floor when I was a DJ. What about “Carrie Underwood” … ” Inside your heaven”. :0)
Thanks! Never heard, Inside Your Heaven, but will go listen to it as soon as I can.
Some of these really brought back memories. “Tears in Heaven” is a special favorite of mine. ❤
I can’t listen to Tears in Heaven without getting sad. Thank you for stopping by!
