Musical Monday ~ Songs With A Body Part In The Title

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 Have A Body Part In The Title. Please leave your favorite song that has a body part in the title in the comments below.

  1. Wow this was a lot harder then I had first expected. The only song I can think of is Jar of Hearts by Christina Perri. My tween/teen self used to dance to this as if I actually knew what true love and heartbreak was lol. Brings back some good memories.

  2. Too many choices! I read that in a poll of jazz musicians that Heart and Soul was the most liked. Truly it has a beautiful tune and includes a very tricky modulation. On the other hand …well, that’s another great title, one of my favorites to play.
