I am so thankful for all talented people that gives us wonderful music for any situation. There is music to uplift our spirits. Music to help us have a good cry when we need one. Music to get us up dancing or just moving around. Music to recall wonderful memories that may have faded into the background of our mind. Even music to help us feel better when we are ill.
Music has helped to bring me through some dark times and times that I wondered if it would ever get better. It has also helped me get housework done I can really get some cleaning done with good music going. Music has also helped me through many other times, especially those times that only God could make lemonade from the lemons.
There are many genres of which I like most of them. I never have a problem finding the genre I need to go to to meet the need I have at any given time. You can find lots of music in my home, some on CD, on tape, on flash drives, in the cloud, on my computer and subscriptions online.
I love and appreciate music and I am so thankful that there are so many talented people that bring to us wonderful music in different forms and genres, bless them all.
My favorite music is Country, but mostly from the early years, most of the new country is not my favorite, although I do like some of it especially the singers. My favorites in all the genres that I like comes from the 50’s through the 80’s.
Do you listen to a lot of music? What is your favorite music?
You have touched on a favorite subject of mine. I LOVE Classic Country music. I have no use for the new country music, I don’t even listen to it. My sister, from time to time, tells me about a new country song or artist she thinks I may enjoy. I always listen to what she recommends, and I will say, I have enjoyed some that she has recommended. But, in my opinion, there just isn’t true country music anymore. “Murder on Music Row” performed by George Strait and Alan Jackson, clearly shares my opinion of the new country music.
I have had vinyl (both 45s and LPs), 8 track tapes, cassette tapes, CDs, MP3s and now flash drives. I do have a few favorites from more genres of music, but my heart will always be with Classic Country. My children will tell you I have tunnel vision when it comes to my choice of music, as well as those who sing the songs . Much like my sister, my children are both very diverse in their love of music. Looking back, I wonder how they ventured into the full music world. Perhaps a father with an ear for easy listening and popular genres gave them a path. 🙂
I am so very grateful for all music. What a sad world it would be without it. So much God given talent, and I for one am very thankful for everyone who shares that talent with all of us.
Thank you so much for you comment it is great that you too love classic country music.
I don’t think we will ever see music again like the classic country, but I keep hoping. There are many with great voices that could sing songs like classic country was but choose to go more for the songs that are more like country pop or country rock as they call it, but I myself do not think they should be mixed like that. Stay with pop, rock and country…I like that much better.
I have been blessed with music given to me by my sweet sister and sweet nephew on MP3’s and CD’s. A few of the songs are by my very talented nephew.
Keep enjoying that good ole classic country music, there is nothing wrong with you having tunnel vision when it comes to your music. 🙂
My favorite song is Susan Raye’s LA International Airport. Another is Thank You For the Music by ABBA, which your post reminded me of.
I am happy that my post reminded you of a favorite song. Keep enjoying music.
My husband and I love to dance, so anything that will get us up to jitterbug, west coast swing, cha cha, slow dance, or foxtrot to.
That is great!
