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!

Lights, Camera – ABBA!

Yes, I saw the film Mamma Mia! No, that is not where I first heard ABBA. Did you know ABBA was offered about a billion dollars to go on tour again, but they all turned the offer down? Talk about class!

Want to know something else interesting? Not one member of ABBA could speak English when they were originally performing. They memorized and sang the words for their songs, but they did not actually understand English. You would never know that when you heard them perform, though! 🙂

Okay, history lesson over. Go have fun thanking ABBA for the music!

Here are some more musical trips down memory lane for you, readers! My tastes may be retro rather than hip, but that is what happens when you listen to the music they play at the store. You hear it, and it makes an impression on you – even when you cannot understand all the lyrics!

American Soldier

This is a song by Toby Keith.  It is one which I think I may have known of for some time, though I did not learn the title for it until relatively recently.

The video that goes with the song tends to bring tears to my eyes when I watch it.  I love the United States military to pieces, especially the Navy and the Marines.  What can I say? Jarheads and Squids are AMAZING!!!  The SEALs are, too, of course.  I can’t forget them.  😉

But the scene in this video that I especially enjoy is the shot of the Doughboy as he takes the crucifix he is wearing around his neck, kisses it, then puts it down his shirt front before charging over the trench wall.  It makes my eyes water every time.

I hope you enjoy the video and the song, readers.  God bless America, God bless our troops, and God bless you!
