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.

No problem Cheryl
Lovely collection, had not heard Deanne and Trisha great songs.
Thank you!If it wasn’t for my daughter I probably wouldn’t have known about Deanne and Trisha. Was never much into country music, but these are great!
They are great
I try to pick good ones : )
A nice selection, Cheryl! Here’s one that’s more of a crush than a song of love:
I always liked the song Young Turks by Rod Stewart. Catchy beat to it.
I’ve always liked the beat to that song.
Thank you Cheryl you always start my Mondays with a smile, love the music choices.
No doubt giving away my age lol !
Point duly noted not to turn up the sound on TV speakers!! x
My favorite “Young Love” is still Tab Hunter’s. Donny covered that one, too.
Cheryl, I grew up with these two fabulous artists: Barbra Streisand and Barry Gibb (& brothers).
When considering ‘Love’ songs this one came to mind very quickly… 🙂
Hi Carolyn. I tried clicking on the link but got a message that the video was terminated for copyright infringement. I probably know the song : )
I’m sure you will know it… 🙂
I am a teenager in love–really–or I feel like it!
I love your music blogs!
Lovely collection you have. They’re nostalgic 🙂
