Let the Music Play

Let the Music Play


“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.”

Back in the day

I was a young’un then

You’d know the sort

Being born back when

Youth seems too short

Why grow up so fast

Yearning and learning

My fate not yet cast

Yet, ideas are churning

I listened to music


I was a girlie girl

Loved dolls and things

A head full of curls

I was a tomboy too 

Loved bikes and things

A head full of curls

I listened to music


Loved trees and things

Ha, Ha, you can’t get me

My fort-branches and leaves 

Yeah, this is still me

I listened to music


Loved music and things

My transistor radio

Discovered rock and roll

Times that fed my soul

I listened to music

Loved music and things

Discovered rock and roll

Stereos, boys, and cars

Times that fed my soul

I listened to music


                                             Sally Sue, our 1964 Impala SS, a real charmer!

Loved music and things

Discovered rock and roll

Concerts, men, and cars

Times that fed my soul

Hairstyles change

I listened to music


Yes, our cars have names. This is Blue. a 1964 Galaxie, which is our newest addition.  My husband, Paul, is the happy driver!  

Love music and things

Discovered rock and roll

Golden years, family, and cars

Methinks a bedraggled world

Takes time to heal the soul

Listen to the music

You can't go wrong

My taste in music is ridiculously eclectic. I especially love anything I can sing along to.

I remember this music gem, Franci, and my


Sausage roll, 

That fills a holes, 

For the soothing soul,

From rock 'n roll. 


But have you ever spared a thought for all those songwriters who spend all their lives composing, just to spend their after-lives de-composing? 🤣😂🤣

I don't like Muzak either. IMO, it's just background noise, which I believe that's the intent. I like most types of music, some more so than others.

Who found out that nothing can capture a heart like a melody can? That's why I thank you for the music

I like many forms of music, dependant on mood, but I hate Muzak. So often it drives me out of places rather than entices me into the establishment.

Franci\ud83d\udc1dEugenia Hoffman, beBee Brand Ambassador- this is an interesting buzz. Right now, I am preparing a buzz on the role of neuroscience in behaviors such as leadership behavior. What science findings state is that when people listen to music they tend to produce more because music has proven its value in bonding people together. More pronounced effect is when people in sing in groups because they bond more and a sense of belonging develops. Keep listening to the music,Franci
