Aromatherapy for the Ears&Mind...music

  1. Stevielyn peaked my interest regarding the different artists and styles of music you love.

    Is there anything new to you? I have recently discovered James Taylor and would love to have a list of recommended tracks-from most recent to way back.
    I also love Jill Scott, Angela Bofill, Anita Baker, Barbra Streisand, Sarah Vaughn, Sting, Michael Franks, Boney James, Amel Larrieaux, Cher(had the doll!), Dolly Parton, The Stones, Rod Stewart, Teena Marie, John Mayer, Vivian Green, Phyllis Hyman, and Nora Jones to name a few.

    As you see I have a potpourri of taste.
    What music suits what mood for you?
    Do you like to sing at the top of your lungs when you're driving alone like I do?
    I'd love to add to my collection. Whatcha got????

    Oh yes !!! Love to crank it up and sing at the top of my lungs while driving !!! And Tina Turner is one of my favorites to do that with !

    Yep, potporri here as well.. all depends on my mood. Oldies (late sixties to mid seventies) for happy driving moods, classical or piano when pensive or mellow or rainy weather and vegging at home by candlelight...and any or all Broadway when reminescing and remembering family/home.

    And you're so right... music is indeed "aromatherapy for the ears"... and the soul !

    Here's one I love to sing loud and don't care who's watching while I drive. My husband cracks up at me:
    "DO YOU BELIEVE IN LIFE AFTER LOVE!after love, after love, after love!" I do a pretty good Cher impression-since I was about 7 or 8 yrs old!( I'm doin it now!)

    The only music that I allow myself to listen to is polka music! It's music that has a strong scent, if you ask me!

    I love a potpourri of music also. Although,while riding my bike early in the morning I love to listen to piano music...like Danny Wright or Jim Brickman. It makes me feel calm and inspired.

    I'm so glad you guys have come to share!
    I discovered polka when I met one of my best friends on the planet who is from Wisconsin. We went to a wedding of another friend from there and the polka came on and they went crazy! Holding hands and dancing around like I don't know what! Now you know this little black girl never saw anything like it! Not in real life, at least. It was the happiest atmosphere, they pulled me out of the chair and we danced all night. It was one of the best times I've had.

    Nightmoon, what kind of piano music? Is is jazz, classical...? I love instrumentals-horns, piano, guitar.
    Also love classical-the best for me to study to.

    The piano music I love is contemporary classical. Both these artists fit the criteria for me.

    BTW, I was raised on polkas....I remember coming home from Church and my Dad fixing a big breakfast. My Mom and Dad would sway back and forth to the Sunday morning polkas aired on our local radio station. Obviously not enough room for them to dance the full polka in the kitchen!! But romantic anyways!!
