Music Can Change Everything

Today while driving from yet another doctors appointment I was feeling pretty sorry for myself & then a great set of songs came on the radio & changed everything.

First it was Donna Summer with Dim All The Lights - GREAT SONG!

That set the pace and next was Kelly Clarkson with Since You Been Gone.

Next up an 80's classic, Cutting Crew with I Just Died In Your Arms.

Then U2, With or Without You. If you don't watch any of these other videos, watch this one if you're a U2 fan. This girl is just so lucky & Bono was just so sweet with her.

Next was Shania Twain, who makes me gag like I have a hair stuck in my throat, but that was saved by the Plain White T's and Hey There Delilah. If you don't know the story behind this, he wrote the song for his girlfriend while he was touring and she was an Olympic skier in training.

That line, "Times Square can't shine as bright as you" gets me every time.

When I got home I dug out a bunch of my old CD's. Everything from the Red Hot Chili Peppers to Billy Joel, George Strait, to Lionel Richie.

I'm transferring them into my computer and then onto my Ipod and am making a mental note to all music back into my daily routine.

Felling low? Get out some old CD's or even cassettes and sing into your hairbrush!

my kind of day and fun for sure for singing that is. The t.v. remote, or cell phone work great also. Thanks for taking the time to want to do my meme. That made me smile..

Music has always been a big part of my life. So many times over the years I have turned to music to lift my spirits. I'm glad you have this outlet to help you through the tough times. You are and will remain in my thoughts and prayers Pam. I am trusting that all will be well for you! Keep singing! :)

Hugs to you!!!

Did you find out anything new on your appointment??? I agree on the music thing. Luckily I was smart enough to MAIL MYSELF my ipod and ihome so it was here waiting for us. I wish I had been smart enough to mail myself 20 more boxes of stuff I can't live without, lol!! Oh well...rock on my friend!

Great songs - and I agree, Shania makes me wish I was deaf for the most part.

You are so right! Music can really change a mood. When my two year old gets really fussy, I crank up his music and dance. It is hard to fuss while I am doing a funny mommy dance.
