Bloggers PhotoWell I am not sure what to say here except to tell you that much of my story is told through my poetry...I have often written about my journey... I have a brother and sister I love dearly and a mom with dementia who doesn't know me but I love her dearly also. I live with a man I love very much ,one big reason being he makes me laugh!..I have many good friends and a kitty named Layla who is much loved and very spoiled! I have alot of interests including playing guitar,keyboard and harmonica,making all kinds of crafts,writing and cooking to name a few...I worked in resort hotels and clubs for many years so I've moved around a lot but now my home is in Pennsylvania which I love.  

What is your favorite song ?


Blog Posted:2/17/2014 4:22:00 AM
Hi everybody---I was just thinking about the atmosphere I create when I am going to create! I like to listen to music and how loud it is depends on what I'm doing~For example when I'm making crafts I like it louder~when writing I like it turned down just a bit~Now as for what I listen to I have mixes of all my fave songs ~ This got me to thinking about what my favorite songs and artists are~Currently I am really liking "Wagon Wheel" with Darius Rucker(of Hootie and the Blowfish fame)~~But that is just one of many~Yet I'd have to say when I hear that song I am really happy! And yes I sing along LOUDLY "cos I know the words by heart~~My all time favorite song is "Layla" by Eric Clapton~~I even named my kittie after it! So what is your favorite song  or songs? And do you listen to them when you are writing? I know some people like complete quiet when they write but not me! Usually I like soft rock,classic rock,country or oldies from the 60's and 70's~~This is good writing music to me! What about you? Tell us some songs you like best especially when you are in a creative mood? And what genre of music do you listen to the most? Thanks and have a lovely day!

    I am the guy that sings in the shower:-), can't sing at all but in the shower I am a platinum artist:-) I like so many genres of music it is hard to choose. Queen, Aerosmith, Metallica, Pastor Troy, Outkast, Nas. You get the idea!! I love the songs "Tiny Dancer" by Elton John & "September" by Daughtry!!Asavvy1

    Not really a Country fan but old school Garth Brooks & Reba I get down with. ACDC, ZZTop, Notorious BIG and #1 favorite I would say Tupac Shakur!! I have an Ode to Tupac in my archive!! Thank you for posting this thought provoking blog!!Asavvy1

    If I was absolutely forced to pick a fav, it would be 'Like a Rolling Stone' by Bob Dylan which started the rock music movement. Second would be 'Hello Stranger' by Barbara Lewis...

    Tim, I have to admit Bob is hanging right in there, and rock is high on my list, but after about the zillianth time, Bruce still brings tears to my eyes with "the streets of Philadelphia."

    Layla huh? You have good taste Deb! One of my favs too. Have you ever listened to the album? Eric Clapton teams up with the late Duane Allman for some of the best guitar playing ever. That's Duane's guitar screaming and wailing at the end of the song. Duane is considered by music critics to be the greatest slide guitar player ever. The group was called Derik and the Dominoes. I will send you some of it via Spotify. Hootie and the Blowfish are from Coumbia, S.C which is about 100 mi from my hometown of Greenville, S.C.

    Excellent choices, Nette. I do like Cold Play also.
  1. Date: 2/17/2014 4:26:00 PM
    I like many songs. Especially Country. That is my favorite genre. I've been listening to Westlife lately. Also like some of the songs from Glee. Rascal Flatts, Luke Bryan, Blake Shelton, George Straite are some of my fave country. But love a lot of them. Air supply is still good, along with some Barry Manillow. Some oldies also. NO ROCK OR RAP !!! YUCKY !!! LOL

    Lindsey Avatar Catie Lindsey Date: 2/17/2014 6:12:00 PM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    I like Air Supply also. "Out of Nothing At All" will always be one of my favs. they are going to be here in Reno in Early March, and I do want to see them. It should be a good show. hugs, Catie :)

    "Please Come to Boston" by Dave Loggins is one of many, "Pilgrim" by Enya, "Blood Brother" by Springsteen, "Don't Ever Love Me" by Belafonte, "Rainbow" by Russ Hamilton, "Living Next Door to Alice" by Smokie, "None But The Brave" by Springsteen. depends upon mood. I love Irish folk songs and a lot of Country.

    The first one to come to mind is always, John Lennon's "Imagine"...... All the songs ever written, the message in this song is hard to ignore. But there are so many amazing and wonderful songs that stir my heart... I love so many of those already mentioned below. :) Music that speaks from the heart, and soothes the soul

    Yes music that is soothing is good...and speaks from the heart..my boyfriend loves heavy metal and hard rock which I can't stand!! With a very few exceptions...but maybe that music speaks to his soul! LOL !

    My favorite song is The Morning After by Maureen McGovern. "Can't you see the morning after? It's waiting right outside the storm...It's not too late, not while we're living. Let's put our hands out in time." (I chose it for my wedding song) I listen to anything Rod Stewart sings, he is my all-time favorite singer. Also I love to listen to Simon and Garfunkel (The Sound of Silence, A Hazy Shade of Winter) and John Denver (Rhymes and Reasons, & Poems Prayers and Promises. Their lyrics are pure poetry and so relaxing. When I want to be uplifted I listen to Brandon Heath or Jeremy Camp. They are the Christian Rock artists I like best.
