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 one I had to cheat for because I couldn’t recall one song I liked that had the word smile in the title. So I just searched smile on youtube and found a song I used to listen to in high school…or was it middle school? Either way check out Smile by Lily Allen. A song that never once made me smile lol. Her stuff is kind of depressing but this is not as depressing as others.
Wow. I checked out this song. I agree that it’s not really a song that would make someone smile. I really enjoy checking out the songs you post to me.
I really appreciate these post. I find that it helps me to remember songs I have forgotten. It has really been helping on days when I have been depressed. So thank you for that.
It’s amazing what music can do. Glad it helps.
I always look forward to Musical Monday. 🙂
