Sing, Sing a Song...

Kelly did a post over at her blog about favorite five feel good songs. To my way of thinking, a feel good song is one of those songs that you cannot hear on the radio without singing along.

I grew up in the sixties and early seventies, so my 'feel good' music is from that time frame. Understand also that you can't get too hung up on the lyrics of it. It's the beat man.

I tried to download the videos, but could not, but click on, peoples, click on...

If I died tomorrow, would you still remember me? I'm as free as a bird now, and this bird you cannot chaaaaaaaaaaaange....

Is this a real life, or is it fantasy? Caught in a landslide, no escape from reality...

These songs bring back memories of other places and other people and other times. And they always make me sing.

But putting together this post I also came up with http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iQDaUjI1y3Q&feature=related She packed up her bags and she took off down the road, she left me here stranded with the bills she owed, she took my address and my name, ain't it a doggone shame, sunspot baby: I'm going to catch up with you some time. And what about 'they do respect her but, they sure love to watch her strut' http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6qbeIwn5jR8&feature=related. Today's music ain't got the same soul, I like that old time rock and roll http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U4lglk29Tp0&feature=related

Yeah, Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet put out a lot of stuff that is very singable even if you're in your fifties, driving a Buick down the road. I admit it, I just can't stop at five. There's a lot of good music out there.

I've still got to turn the music off. I've got homework to do. Some things never change.

What are your 'can't help but sing along' songs?

Music makes my world go round. Sometimes I'll be in a horrible mood and realize if I just play a certain song, it can change my whole outlook. Sometimes I forget, but when I do remember to do it, I think about how powerful music can be for a person's soul.
What I really miss is a radio going in the house. We have a great country station here that plays oldies you haven't heard in YEARS. I need to get a little radio for just around the house. It's a fond memory growing up to country music and mama singing :)

I listed ten over at Kelly's blog, even though she only asked for five. As I told her, I could go on . . .

You have some great ones here too.

So many of yours are faves of mine too - these are classics regardless of the generation. I heart anything Queen. And Garth Brooks. And Robbie Williams. And Lady Gaga. One mixed up kid, me!

Depends on my mood, Debby. If I'm in a relaxed mood, then Eagles, Doobies, Queen, Boston, Buble. If I'm not so relaxed, then I need a heavy beat, something like Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Ted Nugent.

Geez, Deb...you've got me singing and dancing all over again this morning!! I'm just glad to know I've got someone to sing along with me now on Black Water. :)

I love some of the choices here, both in your post AND the comments.
