Listening to music is always a joy for me.
Today, while sewing a sun, I listened to some old tunes inspired in part by Saskia's recent posts involving 9 patch music and screaming in the car. The later inspired me to dig out some of my mom's old records while searching for the artist Dory Previn.
This led me to You Tube with a fistful of names to search and listen to. This all makes me really wish I still had a turntable. I could get lost in favorite music from my days gone by.
Below are the albums that inspired and afternoon of listening pleasure.
All of them belonged to my mom, but I don't have any strong memories of listening to them back then. I remember all of the theater albums, hence my love of musicals. I remember the folk songs, embedding themselves into my core. I remember the music of the current times (Joni Mitchell, Peter, Paul and Mary and so on).
Dory Previn was among those 1970's singer songwriters I listened to.
But the others I don't really recall.
However, I do feel a very deep connection to this music.
Not explainable, just there.
What music to you deeply connect to?
Who turned you on to it?
Who did you share it with?
*I'll share the sun when I get a bit farther along with it.
Have a nice week...filled with song!
