Pressing stressing

running stumbling

Let the music play

Searing fearing

manic panic

Let the music play



let the music play

Smiling happy

loving sappy

Let the music play



Let the music play

Let the music play

Let it give you peace

Let you float away

Let you find release

what's life without music?

Music has always been one of my main passions in life. I even took piano and guitar lessons as a child; voice lessons as a young adult. Unfortunately, any talent was mediocre at best, so nothing ever came of those aspirations. Besides, I needed to earn a living and this was just a pipe dream.

Regardless, I couldn’t live without music. It makes me feel, think, reminisce. It’s always there for me, no matter what.

Angry or stressed? My remedy is hard rock or metal, played at full volume. It’s like scream therapy.


Much better after that!

Feeling sexy? Music can be such a turn on!

How does this strike you?

Yeah, baby……ooh yeah!

Every song I know has a memory attached.

When I hear it, the scenes play out like a movie in my head.

To paraphrase Dick Clark:

Music truly is the soundtrack of my life.

Are you passionate about music?

How does it affect you?

What genres do you enjoy the most?

Looking forward to your comments!

  1. I love music and can listen to all kinds of songs. My preference is slow, romantic numbers and sometimes when I am feeling blue, tear inducing, sad ones 🙂 Loved the videos you shared.

    1. Nice to see another music lover. 🙂 My preference is for dramatic music and that would definitely include slow, romantic songs. It’s interesting that we exacerbate our melancholia by listening to sad songs isn’t it? I’ve done that many times as well. Thanks for visiting!

    1. Glad you enjoyed my little poem, Rachna. 🙂 Can’t imagine life without music! I took singing lessons as a young adult, but was mediocre at best. As a child, I learned to play piano but the natural talent was lacking there too. Thanks for visiting.

    1. Glad we have this in common Lee. 🙂 That is also one of my favourite Led Zep songs. Somebody once said: “Without music, life makes no sense”. True that! Thanks for dropping by and have a great weekend.

  2. I love music, too. I can’t stand to be in a quiet car. The first type of song drove me in my youth but doesn’t do it for me anymore. I love the last one. I haven’t heard that song in ages. You’ve posted early this Sunday.

    1. Hi Joyce; I find the older I get, the more I like the hard-edged music. 🙂 glad you enjoyed the last one. This was just an older post I resurrected, and not part of the Music Monday meme. Thanks for dropping by and have a great week.

  3. Hi Liz; Looks like we have some common ground here, except classical music gets on my nerves after about 10 minutes. Rock keeps me awake and alert. 😉 Thanks for visiting.

  4. I love music, have to hear it everyday :).

    I’m one of the ones who can work with music, it helps me concentrate…I guest I’m just weird like that.

    Our family has had musicians generations and my son just started the fourth with his new band. My brothers have made quite a name for themselves here locally and my dad still plays every now and then.

    Now my grandson is showing signs of having musics banging on stuff and dancing…I love it! I also love that we have the same taste in music, great selection as usual 🙂

    Hope you’re having a great week my friend!

    1. I’m the same, Corina. Definitely more productive with the music on! Sounds like your family’s steeped in musical heritage. How great that is! 😀
      Glad you enjoyed my selections. I just love Scorpions! ♥ We saw them live in 2010 – 2nd row centre – fantastic show! Their hometown in Germany is very close to mine and I’ve been a fan for decades. They’ve been around more than 40 years; almost as long as The Rolling Stones. 🙂 Thanks for dropping by.

  5. Hi Debbie,

    Oh yes…I love music too, though listen to it only when I am not working or writing, or else it does distract me. But I’ve seen people who are able to work better when music is playing, just like my sister, though I wonder how they can concentrate 🙂

    I’m glad my kids take after me, though they have their mobiles and other gadgets to hear their kind of music, which is different from mine. And music IS a great mood elevator and just makes you feel so nice – overall.

    Thanks for sharing. Have a nice week ahead 🙂

    BTW – I love the broad new look and seems like you did manage to get the CSS codes all right – great achievement indeed 🙂

    1. I can’t work at all without a backdrop of music. Pretty much applies to most things in my life. LOL To me, silence is deafening! Glad you enjoyed this post, Harleena. 😀
      Finally, after months of trying, I hit upon the right CSS formula to widen the content! Sorry it took so long. I just prefer to figure things out for myself, no matter how difficult. Yes, great moment of self pride there. 😀 Thanks for visiting and enjoy the rest of your week too.
