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.

Great selections. I was torn between Vincent and I Am I Said and Lennon’s Imagine. Imagine is the one that got my vote in the end. I also listened to the Stylistics just to see their choreography!!
Thanks Anne. Vincent is one of my all time favorites.
ooh, great list including three of my favorites. thank you
There are so many great songs from that time, it’s hard to pick 10 for the list. 70’s music is my favorite.
Woo hoo! Musical Monday thanks love it
Musical Monday is so much fun to post. Thank you.
Can’t see the poll, Cheryl.
I went and checked to see if it was there, and it was. Are you on a computer or phone? Thank you for letting me know.
Such a difficult choice. Good fun too 🙂
Thank you. There were so many awesome songs in the 70’s, it’s my favorite music.
