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 That Repeat Words Again and Again. Please leave your favorite song that repeat words again and again in the comments below.

Thanks Victor. I love visiting your blog. You are very talented.
Welcome…and it’s so wonderful if you to say that
She Loves You by the Beatles
Good one! I’ll have to remember to use it next time. Thank you!
The Police’s Roxanne gets pretty repetitive. But I still like it!
Another great one! I like that song too. Thank you for the suggestion and for stopping by.
This was a TOUGH vote as I also LOVE Pharrell William’s HAPPY!! Thanks for the Fun!
You’re welcome. Thank you for stopping by : )
I knew Let it Be would win this, so I almost didn’t vote for it . . . But it was that kind of thinking that got Chris Daughtry voted off American Idol.
I was shocked when he was voted off. Did you hear that American Idol is coming back?
All of these songs were great. Had me singing along! 🙂
Glad that you enjoyed your visit here. Thank you for stopping by.
Springsteen did songs with repeats. I’m thinking of Born in the USA and also My Hometown. I always enjoy your musical Mondays!
Thank you Anne. I have learned a lot about horses from your blog. I love horses but have yet to ride one…and I’m almost 60.
I’m happy to know that I have introduced you to some more information about horses. They are wonderful animals.
They sure are 🙂
Practical Magic is one of my favourite films so no choice for the song lol
Sorry Paula but thank you for stopping by : )
A wide and varied selection of repeaters! Good to see Lambchop once again.
Caneyhead: My Handsome Man
I wonder how many of those following my blog remember Lamb chop…lol
A great selection of music, as always. Thanks! 🙂
Addicted to Love by the late Robert Palmer. I always get here late. 😬
Good song choice! There is no specific time to come by…my blog is open 24 hours every day : )
3rd and 4th paragraph, that’s me. Sometimes I might dance in a store for a second or two before am aware of my surroundings. I love music
Music has a way of getting you to move. It sure does grab at our souls.
Ack! I have to choose only one! I love Happy and Lime in the Coconut! 😀 Both make me smile.
Those songs do the same to me.
Music is the first language!😘
I have to agree 🙂
I could have ticked a few of those. Great choices, Cheryl…
Hey, got a nomination for you here https://victorwriteseverything.wordpress.com/2017/05/28/the-cramm-award/ 😊
Thank you Victor. I will get to this as soon as I can.
I’ll be happy to see you do that. Well deserved.
Will be happy to see you do that, well deserved.
I enjoyed your post! I have been known to say that when musicians have nothing to say they fill in with a lot of la la las of na na nas! But after listening to your reviews of the old songs, I found I do like repetitive music. It is just the new stuff I can quite get my head around!! Must be getting old!!!
Thank you for stopping by. I’m not a fan of some of the new music. I don’t even know if you can call some of it music…lol Take care.
It is interesting that songs go viral and popular on a global level, but actually only a portion of the listeners bother translating them word by word.
Love the list! ❤
