Music Matters Monday: She Drives Me Crazy

So, this happened....a tweet-ersation with @DaleAnnePotter :) ...

...which led to an idea... I am going to start --> Music Matters Monday. 
Why Music Matters?
Music does matter. To me. It always has, ever since I was a wee gal. Not just listening to my parents albums, but also throwing myself on the sofa with the album covers reading all the lyrics & picking my favorite words. I used one of Jethro Tulls songs as an English writing project when I was in the 5th grade.
Music Matters. It makes me happy. Even the sad, gloomy songs. It's a warped kind of happy, but I'm not picky about it since those happy moments are so fleeting.

I have an eclectic taste in music.
And when I'm alone I will listen to it all. 
But when the family is all together, most of the time it's on Christian music or Jazz or Classical.
...or the Kiddos playlist...which includes a couple of pink floyd tunes, naturally. ;)

It's rare when I want or need the tunes off. But there are those times when I can't be bothered with anything...not even music. But even when I'm in a weird, noiseless place, music me.

Now, why Monday? 
Because It's starts with the Letter M, lol ...and because I'm attempting to make Monday non-lame ;)

Moving forward with that....
Like I said in my tweet with Dale, a lyrical journal has been on my mind since forever. 
Not sure why I haven't created one until now, but that's neither here nor there at this point.

On Mondays, my goal is to share an AJ page & a song that may or may not reflect it. lol
There's no particular rhyme or reason to any of this except to satisfy my being.

Welcome to Music Matters Monday!

Taking it back to late 80's!

  1. What a great idea and I love that song (haven't listened to it for ages). Love your page too. It's great just to celebrate something you love just for the sake of it isn't it? I don't think we do that enough. We get caught up in the busyness! I love music too so will be stopping by on a Monday to listen and look. I found you via daisyyellowsquare blog link list. I am playing along with her 21 kindesses and 21 comments on a blog we haven't visited before. So Hello. Toodles.

    1. Hi Jan! Glad you stopped by! Glad you enjoyed the song! & I adore Tammys blog over at DaisyYellow:) See ya Monday!

  2. AWESOME! Journal page is LOVELY and Music Mondays has a nice ring to it.
    Glad I could get you inspired to start!!!
