Thankful and Grateful Day 5 love of Music by Helpfulhannah

Real Estate Agent with HomeStarr Realty RS143922A

Debe Maxwell, CRS  asked what are we thankful for this holiday season? Well I am thankful to wake up every day that is for sure .  When I was a child I woke up in a house full of song . My mother would be singing and some days I sing the songs she would sing to wake me .It  goes like this  "The Red Red Robin is Bob Bob Bob along and there will be no more sobbing while he is singing his song sweet song wake up, wake up you sleepy head get up get up get out of bed cheer up cheer up The sun is red   live life long laugh and be happy .I am just a kid again doing what I did again singing that song . When the red red robin is Bob, Bobbing along "  Then I laugh and bow or curtsey  . Cleo is right behind me playing along 

Now I do not know If I have all the words right. Regardless, it is a happy song and always brings back fond memories . My voice I can promise you is nothing like my Mother's who had a beautiful voice but it will make you laugh. I am thankful for my ability to dance, sing and joke around.  Most important to see the bright side of life

My parents always had music on in the house . Be it Jazz, Contemperary, Benny Goodman or an Orchestra playing the 1812  Oveverture by Tchaikovsky. I played in the school Orchestra first Violin . So I too learned to love music and still do 

My love for music continued with Rock and Roll . I was fortunate enough to see Jimmy Hendrix and Jim Morrison of the Doors jump  right off the stage in front of me and sing . I am grateful to have seen Janis Joplin singing her heart out two feet away from me. The Chambers Brothers clang a bell and sing The time has come today . Last but not least Crospy ,Stills and Nash singing My House. 

I have seen many more bands and musicians. I also love Classical music and ballet  in fact, I love all music . Today and everyday I am thankful for my appreciation and love of Music   

My parents would not believe they could just speak and say play Putting on the Ritz  by Irving Berlin

Good morning Hannah. Your choice of music is far beyond mine, although rock-in-roll and soft jazz are my favorites. Enjoy your listenning.

Music is such a wonderful thing and it brings so much enjoyment to everyone.  I have never been much into music but I do listen to the beautiful songs that people sing.

Brian England  I am an avid Science fiction reader - people hear music without even knowing it - there was a book that I read 40 some years ago the top hits were the commercaial ads  - it always hits home as sometimes in fact how many times do you find yourself singing a commercial jingle -   Happy Sunday

Joan Cox  True Story - Riding to work listen to a rock station and heard on the radio the announcement of my exhusbands death - The woman he lived with hid it from me and his children. I found out when someone dedicated a song to him . Now  what are the odds of that -sad huh but meant to be

Hi Hannah - loved your post.  My parents were both musical.  My father played Clarinet in his HS Band.  I played too and my daughters played flute and clarinet in HS.

Grant Schneider My friend Holly played Clarinet and her father was the minister in Church we would play games there and I would also think it was rather sinful and she would laugh at me

Miss Hannah Williams - music and laughter are good for the soul. I prefer quiet in my home however when driving I like to listen to music and sometimes when I am "feeling it" I will belt out and sign alone.  It is so uplifting!  

Sing on my friends, sing on!

Kathleen Daniels, Probate & Trust Specialist funny the radio in my car went and my mechanic told me it would cost $3,000 for him to replace so to go to Best Buy  where I could get a good one for $450 installed but I have been driving in silence for quite some time now. Maybe because I do not want to hear any information or dedications ?

Hi Hannah... I grew up with classical music. Then I discovered Rock & Roll, country music, blues... as Edward Bulwer-Lytton said: "music, once admitted to the soul, becomes a sort of spirit and never dies." I think this describes you to a "T."

Hi Hannah Williams - I'll bet we would have had a good time at one of those concerts.  I love real rock-and-roll.  My husband was shocked at all the hard rock on my music playlist!

Hi Hannah- I love music...all well. How lucky you were to get to see Janis Joplin. I took piano for over 10 years and played the violin for a few but was not that good at it. My brother has his own band and they play a lot of Beatles music. I love country western and broadway tunes as well.

Hello Hannah - while I may not be terribly talented when it comes to music, I can say I can mess up and mix up a tune quite well.  There is soooo much evidence of that.
