Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 329 – Music

“Behind every favourite song, there is an untold story.”

Unknown

Many thanks, Spidey, for finding me an appropriate music-based quote for today’s post!

It’s true, isn’t int? There is definitely a story behind favourite songs, or else, why would they be so special?

Okay, I know there are some that you just like the lyrics of, but if you dig deeper, there will be some reason, some connection, that keeps you coming back to it.

Music was on my mind, recently, as I set up my Alexa Dots around the house, and compiled playlists that I could stream through the system. I’m quite backwards like that, where music is concerned. I still prefer my cd player in the car, to the streaming, even though I have Apple music, etc, but now, I guess it’s time to harness the power, and the fun you have, asking Alexa to play certain songs, even though she gets songs of other languages a bit mixed up, and ragga songs, which I do love!

Anywho, on Saturday night, as I cooked the dinner, I asked her to play all sorts of songs, and there were mini stories behiind why each of them stuck with me.

I started with (don’t laugh) the Birdie Song. A true party favourite when I was a young child! I attempted to get Lil Princess to join me to do the moves, but after laughing at me (result, better than the moods we get!) she ran off to her room!

Then it was Copacabana, which reminded me of a dance competition in school, where a couple of friends choreographed a dance to it.

These songs morphed into more and more memories from the past, with tunes, or choooons, as we used to say, from my uni years, leading me to begin to create a playlist for myself with memory songs!

It lightened a rather heavy mood here, as a certain someone came home from a match that was lost, and was particularly negative, and after a bit of a kitchen boogie, all felt so much better. The music followed me up to the utility area, where I ironed and continued to dance to more memorable songs from years filled with wonderful memories.

What fun!

So… tell me, are you following the Euro Matches this year

    New Wave was the big thing when I was in college. I love it to this day!

    Music touches us deep inside whatever it causes us too feel and whatever mood we’re in. Give Alexa a good workout 🎵😄

    Sounds good, sis! Really? A mini spy like a dot in every room? You are crazy. Thank you from NSA, CGHQ, and others. Lol One is enough, my meaning. 😉
    In terms of music, I agree with Erika. But, some of the memories one will not get back, others much more. I just say “Manic Monday”;,-) Have a nice Sunday, and enjoy the upcoming week, Sis! xx Michael
    Btw: I am no “selfhosted” at: https://books.eslarn-net.de, and make the first steps back into public. 😉

    Music, like smells, triggers memories. True door openers to relive a time long ago. And when we hear it, it feels like being back with all the feelings we felt then. It is awesome!

    I’m not really one for pop music, having decided as a rather serious twelve-year-old that pop was getting silly. Looking back, I wasn’t wrong, but I think it got less silly as the 70s went on. By then I was firmly in the classical music camp and haven’t left it, although I occasionally hear pop songs that are quite appealing.

    We are considering getting Alexa. Didn’t realise you could make playlists too!
