Dance, Jump, Sing, and Believe

Whoops! It pays to look at the calendar closely, readers, let me tell ya. For some bizarre reason I thought I had two more November weeks to work with, when in reality there was only one. With the holiday crunch in full swing, it looks as though I will have to close out this year’s writings with a brief post about music. None of them are Christmas melodies, in case you were worried. I will save that for December. 😉

The songs below may be oldies but they are definitely goodies. What can I say? Modern tunes rarely have the soul these great pieces do. They will be played well into the future, I am sure, while the songs written in the present will forever remain here.

Enjoy the music, readers!

Some Favorite Rock’n’Roll Tunes

I have quaint tastes. Rap sounds terrible to me, yet I also have a hard time appreciating opera. Numerous tunes and songs from the “Roaring ‘Twenties,” the ‘Forties, the ‘Fifties, and other eras are more to my liking. I am a noted appreciator of ‘Eighties music (shout out to Star-Lord!). But there are some current artists I enjoy as well. The only one I can name right off is Francesca Battistelli; modern tunes that I pick out are usually one-offs, and so I hardly ever pay attention to who the artist is.

Below you will find a sampling of some of my favorite rock’n’roll songs, readers. Before you find something else that is “more your style,” just play a couple of videos for a few minutes and see if you like any. Who knows, you may find something you recognize – or really, really enjoy!

See ya later, alligator!
