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.

Music really changes your mood! I leave you my song: Love is the name (Sofia Carson). Have a nice day! Kiss!
Music sure does! I will have to check that song out : )
Great collection, many of my all time favorites. Thanks for sharing.
Thank you for stopping by : )
They are all great songs. I used to imagine myself as one of Robert Palmers backing singers for Addicted to Love…
I remember doing the same but with other groups : )
This certainly captured a wide range of perspectives on love. Great to hear to “oldies” again…even if that means I’m one of them (LOL). Have a Happy Valentine’s Day! ❤
I am one of them as well : ) I hope you had a great Valentine’s Day, Anna!
What about “If I loved you” from Carousel. I think there is a Sinatra version out there.
I will have to check out this song. Thank you for mentioning it : )
It is old school show tune type of song but very romantic.
Wow Anne. That brought back memories of my days of watching old movies! I’ve actually seen this movie. Thank you!
and thanks for these great songs! Fun to see these videos and remember these artists and songs.
My favorite songs are from the 70’s : )
Well, I hope you had closed captioning on your television because I can’t imagine watching without sound.
LOL…I ended up getting a new television (and I know now to keep the sound down…although it’s been hard).
I can’t see, where you wish us to vote, but I will vote on Stevie Wonder this time, even if there are several good ones, Cheryl 🙂
I totally forgot to add the survey…So it’s not your eyes Irene…it’s my brain! LOL
He he he he he Cheryl 😀
Love them all! Thanks for a great list. ❤
Thank you, for stopping by!
Great choices Cheryl! I suspect all animals react positively to music.I’m planning a expierament with Romeo & Juliette.I’m going to take out my boom box & play a song for them.I’m going to play Dire Straits “Romeo & Juliette”. I’ll be recording it on video.They might take off because of it being strange to them,but than thats why it’s called a experiment.
Isn’t there a quote that goes something like, Music soothes the savage beast? I bet you will have fun video taping your experiment. I’d love to see it, if you don’t mind sharing. I have heard that plants seem to grow better when music is played.
Tell you what,I’ll send you the video as well.It’ll be through “We Transfer”.
Great selection! Here’s one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9yOH5M6_KRI
This was awesome! Thank you for sharing.
Great list! I always preferred The Mindbenders’ version of “Groovy Kind Of Love” because it moves a little faster; Phil’s version just about puts me to sleep…
I almost picked that one : )
