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.

Thank you!!! This will make my 5th Versatile Blogger Award. It will take a while before I can do this, but it will be done : ) Thank you again for thinking of me. It’s much appreciated.
I know, you’re most welcome
There’s also “December 1963 (Oh What A Night)” by Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons. And, while I was looking for that, I found this one by The Dells:
I’m surprised WMG let that video of “A Hard Day’s Night” stand. They’ve done all they can to remove all The Beatles’ stuff from YouTube. That is a hilarious movie, and every time I see it I see something I haven’t seen before.
I almost added December 1963 : ) I wondered why I couldn’t find any other version of A Hard Day’s Night by the Beatles. Didn’t know that youtube was trying to keep it off the site. Never saw the movie but I might now.
The movie is a riot. Every time I see it, I catch something else I didn’t see or hear before.
I am going to have to watch it!
Because the night (Patti Smith); Looking for the heart of Saturday night (Tom Waits)
Nice to see you Anabel. Not sure I know these two songs. I will have to look them up on YouTube.
Tonight from West Side Story. The best is the Quintet where Tonight is sung in an amazing arrangement with several characters from the musical all singing and intertwined.
I’ll have to see if I can find that on YouTube : )
