Music: Call Me Soulful Saturday Anyway…

A lot of music I hear or listen to of late seem to include invocations to connect with, call, find, reach out to me… Well, it seems musicians want to call me, you, us, them (or vise versa) on a cellphone, some payphone or even telepathically somehow, someway. Whatever the need to communicate, music is a great equalizer and brings us all together to entertain and be entertained. What would we do without Youtube and iTunes?

I agree with Thelonious that music is best listened to than explained. I invite you to take a moment to set aside your reservations about any of these songs and go with the flow… You might surprise yourself and enjoy it. If not, call me a Soulful Saturday, far ranging, music lover anyway. More below!

When you begin to see the possibilities of music, you desire to do something really good for people, to help humanity free itself from its hangups….I want to speak to their souls.” John Coltrane

Since we are wrapping up a long challenging week, I’ll keep this post short. In memory of our dear Queen of Disco, Donna Summer, I’ve included one of her songs on this weekend playlist. As always, I’m curious to hear what new tunes you discovered. Do share!  Have a blessed weekend!
Stay Inspired! What are your thoughts? What music are you listening to this weekend? Do you have any favorites you’d like to share? What would you recommend some new tunes? Do share! Thank you. :-)

*Please bear with me as I continue to catch up on your blogs and commenting… Thank you all for your patience! :-)

Positive Motivation Tip: Soulful sounds help us relax and unwind when the going gets tough… Try listening to something new musically this week.  Enjoy!

    “Trying to explain music
    is like trying to dance architecture”

  4. I love music it is the soundtrack to my life without it I do not think I could function! Here is one of my favourites, Imogen Heap by layering tapes she build up a huge sound all by herself ..if you listen to the words it is all about how difficult family Christmases can be …, funny true and clever!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=25VGdNU3nrU

  8. Wonderful post, Eliz! I love your music posts…the clips entertain me for the entire week. :) Music needs to be a part of every person’s life…young and old. Have a beautiful week, dear lady!

    • TY Vivian! I’m glad you dropped in and liked this selection… It’s hard to tell because others don’t seem to like them… But perhaps that is why music is a universal joy… we all have our preferences and can find music that speaks to those choices. TY again! :-)

  9. So very pleased you included Donna Summer’s work in this soulful Saturday lineup. Yes, music can only be explained by the soul. Monk was “spot on”.

  10. Nice song selections today.
