Your day in three songs.

Hi beautiful people.  I am a huge music fan and have found it so very important in helping to get through the last year.   I have used it as a distraction to send me somewhere else when I have had to do something not so nice or when I was scared.  I've used it to help the tears flow or not to.  I use it to change my moods. 

My day is a good one so here's my playlist for today.

Your Song        Elton John                 (for no particular reason than it was playing in my head when I woke up)

Get Rhythm      Johnny Cash

Three little birds   Bob Marley

I would love to hear yours.

    Great topic  @kezmusc !!

    I'm back loving my music since kick starting my uke group in 2011 ..... I hear music (get it??) in every phrase & everyday sayings - and if someone says 2 words together that are in a song - I am likely to sing it!  LOL

    I've just done an arrangement for the uke group for Midnight in Moscow - and just now, I am humming, singing, strumming and 'picking' it - even at 2am in the morning!!  grrrrr  Kenny Ball is more famous for his version tho!

    Iz's  ... Somewhere/Wonderful World - the youtube video of Iz's 'homecoming funeral/ashes' has me in tears every time I watch it.

    Let's Twist Again ...... just such a bouncy song - we play it all the time at our gigs & when we perform at Uke Festivals!  People get up & dance in the aisles!!  SO much fun!!

    Well my day’s been a good one so I’d pick my favourites :

    Joan Baez singing a Dylan song “Forever Young “
    Gladys Knight and the Pips “ The Need to Be ”
    and Eva Cassidy singing Sting’s song “ Fields of Gold”

    Now if I had been a less mellow day it would have been Janis Joplin , The Band and Joe Cocker “Mad Dogs and Englishmen”

     A song from my past, that works today. I've been rained inside after slithering around in the mud, redneck rehabbing my little heart out. Rain! How good is that? A couple of tons of wood to deal with; I've decided to move an old pile to make way for a new one which has changed the days plans. Humming away, feeling pretty good. I'm going for broke and intending to spend most of the day testing my endurance. Did I mention it's raining? Yay!

    Awesome @Zoffiel,

    I didn't  even know we could share videos!  Shows how techie I am.  Unfortunately only getting spits and spats of rain here.  The place is like a dust bowl! Love the Redneck Rehab. :smiley:
