I started posting Monday songs on Facebook … go there and enjoy.
Then I became inspired. Music has been my passion, my companion, inspiration, and kept me safe and warm through a decade of Mondays … and some pretty dark Saturday nights too.
Before my scheduled Holiday posts begin, I wanted to do something different. To surprise you and give you a selection to begin your week.
Most of these are “older” … like me. They are also fun and make you want to dance, to laugh out loud.
Rumors, by Fleetwood Mac is not only one of the all-time, best-selling albums of all time, it’s the one album my children would gleefully smash over my head.
A long time ago, I instructed them to play this after my demise:
The call went out to millions of baby-boomer teens. The phrase coined by Allen Freed, a little known DJ from Cleveland and the reason the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is located in that city. It inspired a generation and the classic movie by George Lucas … American Graffiti.
Rock Around the Clock, performed by Bill Haley and The Comets:
Another fifties great … Buddy Holly … Everyday
Oh, how can I not remember … The Ronettes … Be My Baby
Listening to music started with my cousin’s opera 78 RPM records. Remember that Philco radio? I learned to dance to the music from that Philco and many nights my dad twirled me round the room to the greats in big band music.
Oh yeah, come fly with me and The Chairman of the Board.
So there you have it, a bit of non-scheduled, regression and a bit of rock and roll fun for this sunny Monday.
Got a play list you want to share?
I do listen to music from this century and would love to hear your favs?
Tell me how music inspires you.
