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 Ask A Question. Please leave your favorite song that asks a question in the comments below. You may see your song posted in upcoming blog posts.

Hello! Is it me you’re looking for? by Lionel Richie
Chose some good songs this week!
I can’t imagine a world without music. The first song that asks a question that came to my mind was “Who Are You?” by The Who. Not necessarily my favorite, but it’s a good one!
I like that song too! Without music I am sure the world would be a very different place.
You have a couple of great songs there. Do You Really Want To Hurt Me, is one of my favorites.
Another good selection of songs and singers.
The first song that pops into my mind is The End of the World because I find myself asking these questions too lol
Why does the sun go on shining? Why does the sea rush to shore?…
Why do the birds go on singing? Why do the stars glow above?
The second song that came into my mind would be How much is that doggie in the window?
I did think about adding the video How much is that doggie in the window. I also almost added Is That All There Is? If I make another Musical Monday with songs that ask a question I will use your suggestions. Thanks
