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 a flower in the title . Please leave your favorite song with a flower in the title in the comments below. You may see your song posted in upcoming blog posts.

I had to give “Daisy A Day” a vote, because I hadn’t heard it in years. Nice list!
Thanks John. Never realized how many songs have rose(s) in the title until I did this post. Was hard to find other flowers..lol
I thought I had done a set of songs with roses in the titles, but I can’t find it.
This was tough for me. It was between the Foundations and Seal. But the viral meme of the guy on the L.A. freeway singing “Build Me Up” is just so “feel good” that this song had to have my vote. 🙂
I love that video of the guy singing Build Me Up Buttercup. I think he sings other songs as well.
Boy, did these take me back! Thanks for the trip down memory lane. 🙂
Thank you for stopping by! Have a great day.
And I’ve literally not heard a single one of these songs… I really need to stop listening to the same song five hundred times 😩🙂
I am glad that I was able to broaden your horizons : ) I tend to do the same thing when I like a song, so you’re not alone.
