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.

Tie a yellow ribbon
I love Tony Orlando and Dawn songs!
Is the song from the Wizard of Oz about following the “yellow brick road” have yellow in the title?
It sure does! I was actually thinking of adding it. Maybe next time. Thanks for stopping by Anne.
This series reminds me of my recent series of posts about songs with girls’ names in the title, the last one of which (Dec. 16) you were gracious enough to comment on. Although I’m more into older songs, I will take a look back at some of your other posts in this series to see what you’ve selected.
As for “Yellow,” here’s one so old I wasn’t born yet when it was composed (by W.C. Handy, the so-called “Father of the Blues”), done here Dixieland-style:
What happened to Yellow Submarine by Ringo Starr and the Beatles? That would be my favorite of the bunch.
Someone else mentioned this song. It was the first one to come to mind when I was thinking of “yellow” songs. Decided to use it in another “yellow” post : )
Late again. Yellow Submarine by the Beatles.
Lately I’ve been late myself : ) That was actually the first “yellow” song that came to my mind. I will be adding it to another blog post that has yellow in the title.
