Mondays' Musical Memories Move Me

Musical Memories, songs that remind you of...

Well you will see.

First Up, The Beatles Yesterday.
When I was a teen, I liked this song, but I didn't know why, other than I liked the music of the Beatles.

When I was in my 30s' I got the meaning of the song, but sait that was a long time away still.

Now in my 50s' I wish I could go back to the teen age view, because this song I understand too well and it isn't in the future, it is my present now.

Next up a great uplifting song, from a musical gem not well known to us.  LIGHT SINGS, from THE ME NOBODY KNOWS
I never knew that the 5th Dimension recorded this song or performed it live on Television.  What a wonderful surprise.

Next Up is Joni Mitchell with a song that now again makes too much sense.
I heard this song daily for a little more than a year, when I lived in Las Vegas in 1986.  If I were only as free as the Free Man in Paris with no debts and past issues that weigh me down.  But perhaps my wife and I will be that Free man again in just a little while.

Next Up SEAL Kissed by a Rose.
When I heard this song in the early 1990s' my life was going into turmoil that I would be lucky to survive.  Seal and his music gave me hope when my life was clouded  by emptyness and darkness and promised a  future with love, which has come to be.

Last song.
This song, Human, by the Killers is an amazing piece, that I only discovered this last year.  It ties together what all these songs are about and about where I am now,  This is about my search for identity.  Lifes' journey is for me about discoveriing the inner me, the person I do not know and am only now at 53 beginning to understand.

Hope you enjoyed.

Til next week.

  7. Congrats on being this week's spotlight dancer! You pulled together some excellent songs. Getting out of debt is a wonderful feeling. We paid off our mortgage in 2012, and other than the usual monthly obligations we feel so liberated. Best of luck to you guys reaching this plateau soon! Have a tunetastic week!
