Time for my last song in October’s Song-a-Day fun I’ve enjoyed putting together.

This last song I chose is Sing a Song. Perfect, don’t you think? I ran across it a few weeks back when looking for other ones to share. “Best choice for my last song,” I thought to myself. “Maybe I’ll find that old CD. Hmm, where did I put it?”

 

Here are a few quotes on music.

“One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.” ― Bob Marley

“Where words leave off, music begins.” ― Heinrich Heine

“Where words fail, music speaks.” ― Hans Christian Andersen

“And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.”  ― Friedrich Nietzsche

I often have fun making my own middle name being I was not given one. If I was forced to write one down, I’d be tempted to write Marianne Sing-A-Song Petersen. Like I shared in my first few postings, songs can mean so much to me. If they have the perfect words that hit home, held by the perfect music, I’d then, like this song says, sing-a-long.

If you ever find a fifty-Something year old woman in her car, or jogging down a street with an ear plug glued to her head, obviously showing she’s listening to a song, you’re most likely looking at yours truly.

 

I can’t help but assume that you all now know I love music. God knows that fact as well. I’m sure He knows I’m thankful He created music way back when, also sure He’s often right next to me just singing away as well.

I’ve enjoyed this project of sharing songs. I’ll end with one suggestion – Have fun singing to your perfect songs. Make your middle name Sing-a-Song, and, as the song says, don’t worry that it’s not good enough for anyone else to hear. Just sing, sing your song.

Footloose – Song #24

Sorry, but I have to share this song. My reason is a bit silly but I’m sure everyone has silly reasons for doing something now and then. I picked this song to show you how the beat can easily cause one to make it one of your favorites, thus passing the ‘Must Share’ test.

I’m sure you all can understand what it’s like when you have to choose a song. Sometimes, any song would be fine. No skipping to another song is needed. Almost anything fits your fancy. But then there are times when you’re a bit more picky. That’s how I was on my run yesterday. My iPod refused to meet my need for that perfect song.

A song come on after I started running. Fine. It did the job. After that . . .

Too boring. Click – Next.

I heard it last time. Click – Next.

That voice isn’t really ‘IT’ for right now. Click – Next

Wait… this one might be . . . Naaaa. Click – Next.

Too slow. . . . . . .   

And then finally, after one more click, up pops Footloose.

YES! No ifs, ands, or buts. WOOO HOOO !

I’m sure that once you turn it on, you’ll understand why. (sorry if an add shows before)

 

As soon as it started, I sure cut loose, foot loose, wearing my Tuesday running shoes!

If you are hearing this in the morning, I hope it helps get that energy many of us beg for. If you are hearing this in the afternoon, I hope it gives that boost to keep you keeping on. If you are hearing this right before going to bed, well . . . sorry.

Shining Star – Song #21

Do you have a song that when it unexpectedly comes on the radio you just crank it? If I’m the only one in the car, then that’s for sure what I do. No real reason this one has stood out to me like many other songs have. It hasn’t caused any deep-down thinking, getting me to ponder on anything much like most other favorite songs do. I guess it’s just the beat that glued it’s place in my heart way-back-when. This song, along with quite a few of their other songs, don’t let you hands be still for very long on that steering wheel, or your feet not to dance on your kitchen floor.

I guess I could say the wording can fit a bit into all of us. After all, we should try to be a shining star no matter who we are, right?

We aught to shine as bright to see what we can truly be, making it our goal to do our best as we carry on.
