Sometimes You Just Have To Rediscover The Music!

       Talking about music....this (header photo) is one of my hubby's sweet 'babies' in the backyard that have him singing for joy! :-) It's one of his new hollyhocks that's growing in the backyard. Now he knows what it is! ^_^ It was a mystery there for a while...

       They haven't completely opened yet, but they almost have their 'land legs' and they're making hubby sing! ^_^

       Or is it the music channels on the upper end of the TV dial, that hubby and I have rediscovered lately, that have him singing like that?! ^_^ ...If you don't have cable television you probably don't know what I'm talking about...Along with the other 700 channels you can look at nowadays.....I mean WOW!...there, somewhere in the 500s, is channel after channel of music.
      You can just turn to the channel and it will play song after song in that particular category all day long!...: A hit list of songs...Hip-Hop and R&B...R&B Classics (one of my favorites)...Dance/Electronic...Throwback Jamz...Reggae...Classic Rock...Retro Rock...regular Rock...Soft Rock (one of hubby's and my favorites)...Pop Hits...'90s...'80s...'70s (another favorite of ours)...Solid Gold Oldies...Stage and Screen...Kidz Only...Toddler tunes...Today's Country(Yep!)...true Country(Yep, yep! ^_^)...Smooth Jazz (this is hubby's favorite)...Blues...Easy Listening (We put this one on a timer at night now, to go to sleep by ^_^)...Classical Masterpieces...Musica Urbana...pop Latino...etc.......I could be here naming the channels all day!!! :-]
     WOW! We are just amazed at how much music our brains have registered....and stored over the years! We know at least some of the words to almost every song that comes on!!!! O_O ...Or we know exactly how the beat or melody goes!...Who knew we were even paying that close attention back when these songs were being played on the radio, or being played up and down the aisles in the grocery store! ^_^
       Some of them make us 'Smile'...

          Some of them remind us of where we were when we heard them, or what we were doing at the time...

          Some of them are reminders of our childhood...

          Oh! We love music!....and we love that we get to sing the songs,  and go down memory road, any time we want, by just turning to a TV channel.....again. ^_^ ...Or, if we wanna see the videos, scoot on over to Youtube!! :-)
        I hope this post reminds you of some good music you've been missing...and you didn't know you had! ^_^ Have a good day, Everybody! :-)

 Its The Beat

The syncopated rhythm
of the tapping of your feet,
and the snapping of your fingers
to the systematic beat
make the music that you're  hearing
(that you think is kinda neat)
motivate your body's  swaying,
and you have to leave your seat;
Now you're dancing back and forth,
and causing rising body heat.
And it's all from a beat-
Yes, one syncopated beat!


  1. I think that's my favorite poem! It has a beat and I feel like moving when I read it! LOL
    I know what you mean about those channels. I listen to them a lot when I'm cleaning or doing other chores. We have surround sound hooked up to it and so can listen in stereo. Who needs a radio? No commercials...just all music!
    Have a wonderful Saturday!

    1. Yes, Cindy, I know you like that poem. In fact, every time I read it or go to post it, I think of you. :-)...And, oh Yeah, those channels are great for accompanying you while you're cleaning, crocheting, or whatever! ^_^ ... Have a great day, Cin!

  2. I love that hollyhock. The colour is amazing! I can almost imagine a blouse or a sweater in that colour.
    I also love that Uncle Kracker song. If I remember correctly he wrote that about his kids & how they make him smile.

    1. Hi Jo!...Yes, I love it too. In fact, I'm posting some updated pictures of it today. :-) The colors are beautiful...And I didn't know Uncle Kracker made that song for his kids. :-] I like it even more now! :-)
