It’s funny how summer seems to allow you to do things that you might not even think about during the rest of the year. One of the things that my husband and I will do in the summer is to put on some old classic rock and roll music and crank it up and open the windows and sit out on the patio. We sing along and dance around and talk about all our music memories, both good and bad. There is something about the music of your teenage years that just sticks with you your entire life. I can somehow remember all the lyrics to Captain Fantastic but not remember what I might have read in the newspaper today. Sigh.
Your Monday Challenge this week is to listen to some old favorite music and sing along. I’m not a very good singer. In fact I am really really bad. But I love to sing along! I think it is good for us to not only remember old favorite tunes and the memories that go along with them, but also, every once in a while, just let go and sing out loud, ala Julie Andrews in “The Sound of Music”! I know you want to do it.
Whether you listen to Rock & Roll, Country, Rap, or Classical, you know the music is part of who you are. What memories do certain songs bring back? You can share if you want to.
