The Monday Music Medicine Show – Old, New, Borrowed and Blue

The Monday Music Medicine Show LOGO2

Welcome to the Monday Music Medicine Show!

I love when I find new artists. What makes some of them particularly special is when they sing a song better than when I heard that song originally done by another artist a long time ago.  This is something which is difficult for most newer artists to do, who feel they want to make an older song their own. I’m a purist, in that way. Usually nobody can do it better than the original artist. But today’s first offering is the exception. In the second tune, the singer and the song are both new to me.

Eric Bibb – Wayfaring Stranger

Diana Krall – Wide River To Cross

So my beautiful Monday Music Medicine Show friends, if it pleases you to play, share with us: 1) What songs you’ve known from earlier days that have been brought back to you through another artist, which you find you like better than the earlier version?

2) What new singer’s voice has made you sit up and take notice so that you just had to get their music on your playlist?

Don’t sweat if nothing comes to mind. Just throw something into the ring. You know I want to hear it! Share it there (your own blog with a ping back), or share it here.

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

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.

The Monday Music Medicine Show – Special Edition

Welcome to the Monday Medicine Show!

This week, three days from today, those in this country will be celebrating Thanksgiving. Now if you were me, the music synonymous with Thanksgiving would be a song which tells a great story. And in the 2nd decade of my life, this is the story which I listened to every Thanksgiving, and it has become a tradition.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Happy Thanksgiving, if you celebrate it, or Happy Thursday, when you get there, and most important, Happy Monday Music Medicine Show.

So my beautiful Monday Music Medicine Show friends, when it comes to Thanksgiving, regardless of where you’re living, or when you have a day to give thanks, what comes to mind? You know I want to hear it! Share it there (your own blog with a ping back), or share it here.

Welcome to Monday Music Medicine Show!

Sometimes just a word brings you to a song; a memory from long ago, and you sit and feel good in that moment. I got the idea for this particular Music Medicine Show from reading a friend’s blog.

So my hope is that you, who like taking a ride on the Monday Music Medicine Show merry-go-round, will consider this. Over the last day, or week, does a particular word from a blog title, or within the content, summon up a favorite song?

For me, the word came from The Lady Calensariel, at Imprumptu Promptlings , posted this Saturday past, and when I read the title, I was instantly reminded of a song I’ve loved over the years, and which carries a message I think is very important.

Please be sure to include in your own post, the blog URL and blogger’s name so that we all can journey over and enjoy the magic.
