♪”Remember” – Music Themes

While on a lunch date with my dad, we reminisced about music and how much we loved listening to his vinyl collection of classic hits. My brother and I would happily sing along while he played piano, I’ll always cherish these memories from my childhood. 🙂

Back then, “Popular” music seemed genuine and meaningful, music wasn’t manufactured, autotuned and musicians weren’t pre-selected by board room committees. People sang from their hearts to express themselves and have a good time, the creative energy was fun and infectious. So for this week’s theme, I’ll try to recollect all those great songs and how people still love to sing along for the sheer/ shared joy of  being.♥

An awesome song sticks to ya like gum, and nearly impossible to get it out u'r hair/ head. :) Here's to great POP music, wonderful memories together, & good times ahead!

For my first pick, I’m going with a Southern California classic, an outstanding acapella cover!

Here’s a funny/ unique interpretive dance version of “Careless Whispers”. 🙂

These guys just NAILED IT! The way Mike hit those high notes at the end… oh Yeah♥

One of the best Live performances I’ve ever heard. Billy Joel creates ambience, “gives the place a little sleaze to it… not bad”, lol now that’s one cool kat!

Where would summer be without Don Henley?

Why hasn’t this gone viral already?! Jazzappella performed this on a live show at Godot Cafe in Bucharest, Romania, in April 2013. ♥♥♥

Apocalyptica gives new meaning to Classical metal! These cellists are simply gorgeous!

One of my favorite covers of all time! Chrissie Hynde knows a song by Radiohead (smiles) 🙂

Have you ever seen rock-n-roll harpists?! These twins are stunning in every way.                                              Gotta luv that cemetery backdrop!   😀    http://www.harptwins.com/

Jess Greenberg knows how to rock the sh*t outta her acoustic guitar… not bad presentation 😉

Spontaneity of the moment yields unexpected surprises, Foo Fighters’ Everlong.

And finally I want to thank all my fellow bloggers for sharing their love of music with me.                                        I ♥LUV♥ you guys!

“Thank You”

If the sun refused to shine, I would still be loving you.
When mountains crumble to the sea, there will still be you and me.

Kind woman, I give you my all, Kind woman, nothing more.

Little drops of rain whisper of the pain, tears of loves lost in the days gone by.
My love is strong, with you there is no wrong,
together we shall go until we die. My, my, my.
An inspiration is what you are to me, inspiration, look… see.

And so today, my world it smiles, your hand in mine, we walk the miles,
Thanks to you it will be done, for you to me are the only one.
Happiness, no more be sad, happiness….I’m glad.
If the sun refused to shine, I would still be loving you.
When mountains crumble to the sea, there will still be you and me.

 

Lol, here’s a pic my dad snapped while we brainstormed during lunch. Music selection is hard work… first we eat. 😉

I'm dedicating this week's theme to my daddy, for whom I would not be the person I am today. His passionate and undying love of music helped expand my horizon while learning life's lesson, softened through the gift of music. I love you dad with all my heart. THANK YOU!♥
