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 listen to music.

Fabulous song selections! I love many of them but voted for Donna Summer and Last Dance.
Donna Summer is one of my favorite singers. I remember dancing to her music in the disco clubs in Boston. A long, long time ago…lol
You missed the last thing on my mind by Gordon Lightfoot
Never heard it, or I don’t think I have. Will have to check this out. Thank you for your suggestion.
You have so many good ones here, I can’t pick just one favorite. Maybe “Suddenly Last Summer” by The Motels, just to be different…
I was surprised to find so many good songs with the word LAST in the title. Sometimes it hard, but this one was pretty easy.
Save the Best for Last got my vote. It’s a beautiful song about the opposite of friendzone. Another song I love is Last Christmas. It’s not annoying unlike Mariah’s annual hit. 🙂
I agree with you about Save The Best For Last. I almost choose Last Christmas for the blog post. Thank you for stopping by to read and comment. It’s much appreciated.
