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 the color RED in the title . Please leave your favorite song(s) with the color RED in the title in the comments below.

Oh wow! I just watched Chris de Burgh singing one of my favourite songs ‘Lady in Red’ live. What a fabulous singer. 🙂
You have found many great songs here Cheryl and you did remember the poll today 😀
I remembered the poll too : )
It was very hard to make up my mind in the vote. There are several I like, none that I love. LOL

Hi Barbara. To be honest, there aren’t many RED songs that I love either. Looking forward to what you will be posting during the A-to-Z Challenge.
Red Rubber Ball by The Crykle. Also recorded by the Seekers and Streetlight Manifesto. Monday’s are fun here!
I’m glad you like my Musical Monday posts : ) I don’t think I have ever heard Red Rubber Ball so I’ll have to check it out on YouTube.
Li’l Red Riding Hood. That was a good one.
That’s always been one of my favorite oldies.
I suppose I could forgive you for not including Nesmith’s ‘Little Red Rider’ but it shall take time.
I won’t tell you I don’t know that song then…
Hah! That’s ok, I guess.
I chose Little Red Riding Hood–I’ve always had a fondness for the girl in the red hoodie. 🙂
Here’s another you didn’t include, but unlike geo. Raymond, I forgive you unconditionally. 🙂
By the way, the “Lady in Red” you posted isn’t the one I remember:
I love the Platters! I also love old movies but never saw this one. I’ll have to check it out!
