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!

Sing a Spell

I am not a musical person. I could not play an instrument to save my life – which may be the reason why I enjoy listening to music so much. There are several songs I can pick out by the introductory notes. Although it may take me a while to recall the name of the song, I will recognize it on some level and be able to start singing it – sometimes long after the song is over.

For your aural pleasure, readers, stop and enjoy some of the music below. Maybe you’ll be able to sing these songs later on, too. 😉

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!
