The Monday Music Medicine Show – THE 42

The Monday Music Medicine Show LOGO

Welcome to the Monday Music Medicine Show!

Sometimes I have so many different things I’d like to put up here that I end up with the dilemma of having to choose. This was the exact place I was in when I did the 25 songs 25 days challenge. It is literally 25 posts… But as I think back on that experience, I wonder if something had not been left out. Yes, in fact, there was.

It was hard enough for me to choose my favorite song. In truth, it was just one of my favorite songs. All the music I listen to is my favorite at the moment I’m listening to it. So when I reached the that question,  I made a list. With great interest I found that the list was 42 songs in length.

If you don’t know the significance of the number 42, and if you think you do, but you don’t remember that the one thing you should always have with you is a towel, then you don’t know the significance, at least from my point of view.

The second list, actually, belonged to the question of songs I never get tired of listening to, and can, in fact, listen to them all day and night long.

I tried to find them all on Youtube, but alas, and alac, some were not doable. By that I mean, there are some snippets of songs which fit into that category. I went and made an audio recording, but came to find out that I cannot put an audio up on my site. Thus, I have no real way of presenting them to you. Of course, with time, and patience, I could make my own youtube recording, and put it up, and then you’d see to what I never get tired of listening. I’ll begin working on it, but in the mean time, since I actually did say I would post all of THE 42, I’ll begin here, and over the next 42 Mondays (oh my, that 10 weeks short of a year!) Well, at least you’ll get to see my stick-to-it-tiveness, along with me.

SO, in no particular order, I give to you the FIRST of THE 42.

So my beautiful Monday Music Medicine Show friends, do you have a favorite song, or would you have to make a list because one song does not outshine all the others you love? Which ever way it is in your musical life, you know I want to hear it! Share it there (your own blog with a ping back), or share it here.

BYOM and  remember: It Don’t Mean A Thing If You Don’t Send That


Music is the Medicine in my Soul and I hope yours is as healing and nurturing as mine!

    I love this song Fim. I don’t think I could pin-point one song. In fact, I think that would be impossible for me. Right this second I’m listening to Janis Joplin’s – I Got Dem Ol’ Kozmic Blues Again Mama! album. She’s singing Summertime recorded at Woodstock. Loooove it!

    Thank you, Belinda! It’s been a favorite for quite many years, and I just saw that Bob Dylan wrote it. My first intro to it was through Rod Stewart. But I love The Pretenders, and am a huge Free Willy fan, and the combination of the two put it not only in my list of songs I love, but in videos I love to watch, as well.

    As you can see, there’s no way I could say one song is favored over another. Thus THE 42 was born. 🙂

    Oh NICE @ Janis singing Summertime, I’ve been such a fan, even when she was with Big Brother and the Holding Company.

    If this is the standard, Fim, we’re in for a great 42 weeks. Love the song, one of my favourite Bob Dylan songs, and one that opens up the chance for a really big vocal, like Chrissy Hynde does on this version.

    And I ALWAYS

      Thank you, Howard! And, after THE 42 comes the songs I never get tired of listening to LOL But there is a rather large range of music in the group which I’ll be having at each show.

      Yes, Chrissy’s voice really blossoms with this song.
