Discussions of music.

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!

‘Til next time,

Tunes! Tunes! Tunes!

There are a couple of new pieces mixed into today’s list, readers. At least, I think they are new. This blogger does not pay a great deal of attention to the world of music, which is obvious, considering her taste in songs.

Oh, well, whether these are new or old hits, they are worth a listen nonetheless. Have fun listening to the tunes, readers!

More Oldies But Goodies

Here are some more “oldies but goodies” for you to enjoy, readers! Is it just me, or is this stuff better than a lot of the newer music being produced by a lot of companies today?

Don’t get me wrong – I like several new artists very, very much. But they’re few and far between; music like this just strikes a better chord with me. (Pun intended, more or less.) There’s just something about these songs that makes them superior to a lot of the new noise being created now, in my opinion.

Anyway, here are some “retro” tunes to brighten your day, readers. Enjoy!
