Our house is always FULL of music...LOL with three teenage daughters, each with their own stereo in their rooms, I feel like I am switching the dial on a radio as I walk up the hallway! LOL
I have music for serious house cleaning....thats usually The Angels or some heavy metal, I LOVE Creedance Clearwater for their beat & lyrics, I LOVE irish balads and celtic music....and my fondest memories with my teenage friends is singing every word CONSTANTLY of all of Meatloafs songs. :-) it's really funny when one of the girls express their pleasure in a certain song & Shane or I say yea....that was a huge hit back in '72 or '82...whatever. They are sooo shocked that we know the songs! LOL
*giggle* they keep forgetting that their dad's first job when he left school was as a DJ on our local radio station!
I agree Marianne that we should be grateful for the music in our lives, there is plenty to reflect our mood....and plenty to up lift our spirits when it is needed. My 13 year old ask me the other day if one of her sister's & her could sing a song for their father at his 40th birthday party in October. The song they have chosen is Hero - one of Maria Carey's (I don't think I have spelt her name correctly...)songs. It is perfect for where we find ourselves at this point in our lives.
best wishes to you and your spirit Marianne
love, hugs & cheers,
