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.

There is a genre of music for every feeling. I love to dance when in the UK I would find myself dancing down the supermarket or boutique shop. More often than not these days I prefer the music to the singer’s voice the do not seem to enhance the music but detract from it. Dancing certainly gets you grounded if your feeling unbalanced. Music is also a personal choice.
I’ve noticed some songs in which the music was awesome but the lyrics were terrible.
I’m glad to learn I’m not the only one who sings in stores.😄
I have actually heard other people singing in stores so we aren’t the only ones : )
That’s good to know!😁
Cheryl, I’ve always loved ‘Pink’, Alecia Moore. It was in 2000 her debut album ‘Can’t Take Me Home’ was released. It went to number 1 in Australia. There is something about her most Aussie’s love. Her fresh face and original style (in the year 2000) certainly was inspiring!
I am not too familiar with her music. I did know of her from posters that my niece had up in her bedroom (this was back around 2000).
Oh my, brings back some memories! I quite liked the Creed song.x
Arms Wide Open has always been a favorite of mine too!
