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 is a nice set! A little something for everyone here.
I’ve been thinking about joining. I love music and it looks like fun!
I’ve always loved Chris Isaak’s “Wicked Game.” So haunting and pretty, if not the happiest of love songs.
I listened to the song on Youtube because I had never heard of it before. Great song!
That was quite good, Cheryl. I listened to Beyonce singing that fabulous song. Although I do prefer Etta James’ original version, Beyonce did a great job!
You’ve chosen some great songs and artists; it’s hard to think of others right now. If I do think of one I’ll come back…. 😀 😀
Etta James will always sing it the best!
I agree with you music is very therapeutic. Favourites Righteous Brothers and Herb Alpert. Thanks for the post.
“True Companion” by Marc Cohn.
Wow! Great song. Never heard it before. Thanks!
Reblogged this on après-pensées.
