Welcome to my site…
I believe that music speaks what cannot be expressed, it heals the heart, soothes the mind and gives it rest. It is with great personal pleasure that I present my favorite music for those who have ears to hear…
So many times the singer gets the credit for the success of a song. But I have always looked past the singer. I read the liner notes. The fine print that most people never read in a CD or “record” as I like to say, is truly the truth of a song.
For me the importance/significance of a song is found in the writing. I look to see who wrote the song. I try to relate to what the writer was feeling or what the message of the lyrics are saying to me. I then look to see who the musicians are. For they are the ones that carry that message. The singer is just the vehicle in which that message is presented…the music is the body and the lyrics are the real heart and soul of a song.
It is even more magical when the music and lyrics are written by the same artist. It is then, that we see the true soul of that writer.
For those who really know me, are aware of the fact that I have thousands of songs in my collection.
So…while I do not consider myself as expert on music. I do know a good song when I hear one.
For the record… I will admit that I have a love for The Beatles, Motown and even an occasional soft spot for a sappy pop song. However, I believe that most of you will be surprised by my catalog of music.
For someone who is closer to 50 than 40, my musical tastes haven’t grown old with me. I listen to a lot of music and have an appreciation for all of it.
In short, this is simply about the music I love.
What will you hear?
I will only post music that I believe is worthy of being on this site.
What you will not hear…
You will not hear just “Top 40” music, or million dollar sellers.
So as a record of my love of music, I will post as often as I can.
You may, or may not, like the artist or the song. You may not even like the style of music.
I encourage you to find the song on ITUNES or whatever music site you prefer if you do not have it in your collection.
BUY the music…don’t steal it.
You will discover a lot of music that you may love forever.
Feel free to comment and share your approval or disgust. I challenge you!!!
Listen…Love the Music…Hate the Music…Re-live memories…Sing along…Enjoy…Critique…
