For my contemporaries


It’s Saturday Night, the holiday is over, and I thought I would just take us back in time a few years, to when life was very different than it is now.

 

We were different, too.  We were more innocent.  For many of us, music filled our lives.

 

Here’s some of the music that filled mine, and whether you liked it or not, yours.  I wasn’t a teenager then, but I was in my twenties, and oh, would I dance…

And I’m glad I did.

  7. Music is the medium to past memories. Mine started in the l940s with Harry James and Bing Crosby and the Big Bands and kept on going. I loved the 60s music, but my most tender memories are the ones during WW2.

    • My father was a music collector. He collected big band and Bing Crosby was his favorite crooner. I can still close my eyes and hear his music. My music started with the sixties. When I listen to music from the sixties and seventies, my world is ok again. I also like opera and ballet, zydeco, blues and jazz and thanks to grandchildren a little hip hop. LOL.It is nice to talk to you. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Barbara

    AMAZING song, band, and post! We may not have had the opportunity to experience their music on a cultural firsthand sensation, but their sound still rings throughout every corner of the planet.

    The disco era….. (round of applause)

    Thank you for sharing.
