my play-lists..........
Well, I've done it!  I never thought I'd want to have I-Tunes in my life, I was perfectly happy listening to my wonderful Cd's.  I am a fan of lots of different music, Country, Easy Listening and most of all Native American Flute music. 

I don't have an I Pod, I have never felt the need to push things in my ears and listen to music,  I have CD players and radios throughout my house, in the car and in the studio.  I was happy to have downloaded some Cd's onto my computer to listen to some favorites while enjoying my Facebook communications and writing blogs. 

Then my daughter came visiting and at my request she signed me up for I-Tunes.  I thought I would enjoy some of the old music that I used to listen to, you know when Country was really Country and not the country rock it is today.  I loved music by Don Williams, Alabama, Willie Nelson, George Jones, Vince Gill.........   need I go on? 

Well, I have found songs that I totally forgot about, Chris Ledoux's, The Cowboy Hat, Charlie Danial's Band, Mississippi, and what about the BJ Thomas song, I'm so Lonesome I Could Cry.
I also loved many of the songs by Elvis and Roy Orbison!  Most of these old songs are only ninety-nine cents to purchase, I even found one that was sixty-nine cents!  Some of Elvis's old songs are still a dollar ninety-nine.  Listening to this music is like traveling back in time, when I was young and didn't have a thought about how things might change in the music world or that I might actually become the older generation. 

Oh, I was warned to be careful, this could cost me a lot of money, that my purchases could get out of hand.  I assured my daughter, husband and friends that I was being very selective and in total control.  I am doing well at controlling my urge to buy more songs.  Being the person you have come to know through these blogs, you might find that difficult to believe! 


  1. Hi Cynthia, I think it's delightful that you have gotten 'reacquainted' with music that made you happy then and still does. It's a lot cheaper than anti-depressants, isn't it? and a lot healthier, so I say, enjoy! ;o)

  2. Oh, you're going to have lots to write about now! Certain songs always remind me of a time or place. I noticed there was no John Denver on your list... Maybe that's on your February list. ;-)
