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.

That brought back a memory or two….thank you! 😀
For me too! I am glad that we have YouTube, Pandora, ect. as these allow us to listen to whatever year of music we like
I used to love listening to my Belinda Carlisle CD! Been greedy and voted for that and Whitney as I couldn’t choose between the two. x
I had a Belinda Carlisle CD too. There are so many great singers that it’s often hard to just choose one.
Had to be Rick Astley. I named my son after him. 😉
One of my grandsons is named after an actor that was on the soap opera, All My Children.
Gas… Well guess who all mine were named after. There’s Rick of course, then the twins Kylie and Jason, then my youngest Whitney 😉
Cheryl, WHAT A WEBSITE!!! Musical Mondays & Hits of 1987 is a sure hit! How you do it so thoroughly is beyond me!!! Google, Google, Google???? And thanks for the “Like” on my principal’s story about “The Snow Day”!!!! Phil from excuseusforliving.com
Thank you Phil. I don’t know what I would do without Google…LOL Although I could write a list of songs that I listened to back in 1970’s- 1980’s I certainly don’t remember the actual year they were released. In my searching I have also found songs I totally forgot about. You are welcome for the LIKE. I just read and left a comment on another post of yours. Take care!
Rick Astley…what a voice. I was thinking about him the other day and wondering where he is now.
I often wonder what happened to some of the singers. Some were lucky to have longevity in the music world such as Cher.
Great memories, but Hungry Eyes was my favorite.
Several songs / groups I am not familiar with. There were some things 80’s I didn’t care for. Always loved Belinda Carlisle’s voice.
Perspectives at Life & Faith in Caneyhead
My favorite songs are those in the 70’s. 80’s is next but I started not caring for many of the songs when the 1990’s rolled around.
This is great!😍
That year was all about Dirty Dancing and the gorgeous Patrick Swazye every girl dreamed of being Baby
I remember : )
