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.

Beautiful songs. As I heard only two because three videos were restricted!!
I really hate when this happens!! I wonder why this is done? Doesn’t make any sense to me.
May be because of terms and conditions of different countries
Might very well be….too bad they do that : (
Here’s one from the mockumentary called “This is Spinal Tap”:
For some reason I am unable to view this. I will try later. Thanks for sharing.
You have some good songs here.
That would be Pink Floyd for me I think. I like the analogy of music as a time machine! 🙂
Never cared for Pink Floyd, but always liked that song.
I’m definitely a Donna Summers girl. Rich girl was a fabulous song, too.
Have a musical day, Cheryl… 🙂
I liked Donna Summer. She grew up not far from where I used to live. I actually know someone who knew her. She used to go into his restaurant in Boston.
Oh this is such a good idea. I love music and tend to have something playing at all hours of the day. I listen to all kinds of music when I am in different moods.
I do the same. When It often depends on what mood I am in as to what kind of music I listen to.
Do you mind if I use this idea for a few blog post as long as I credit you for having the idea first?
I don’t mind at all : )
Money Money – Abba. Another good selection of songs.
I don’t think I have ever heard that one by Abba. I’ll have to check it out : )
Overslept again. “Money Money” by Liza Minnelli and Joel Grey from movie “Cabaret” (1972) https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=I8P80A8vy9I
I’ll have to use these if I do another Musical Monday -Songs about money. Thanks for the suggestions.
