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.

The Beatles. All of those early ones like “She Loves You.” “That Girl” etc.
I have to agree with you on The Beatles. I loved all their songs. I don’t think I could pick a favorite if I had to.
I have very fond memories of listening to Jim Reeves on an old record player as a child.
Jim Reeves was a favorite singer of my dad’s. I always think of my dad each time I hear a Jim Reeves song, so I know what you mean : )

Always wonder why WordPress ‘trash’ some comments. Anyway, glad you found it and that you will pay it forward. Please may I ask that you provide me with a pingback then I will check out your post and nominees. Happy blogging and thanks for making contact.
I just happened to look and saw there was something in my trash. I’m glad I looked. I’ve had this happen a few times with others. Not sure why it happens.
Yup, I wish WP would not do it, as you still approve it yourself. I generally check my trash once or twice a week.
Anyway glad you found my note
It’s a good idea to check it. You never know if a great blogger is lying in there among the spam : )
