  1. Are you ready? Think of the various ways  (lullaby, radio , lp, 45, cd, mp3,  internet radio, and etcetera) you have listened to music and try to list them in order from earliest to latest. The older you are, the more you will list unless you've gone to a yard sale.  


2. Post Your List    In the comments below and share this blog with your friends. Rinse and repeat :D. Anyone remember the disc go round record carrier in the 70's and 80's?

Sunday's Song # 3: "Always and Forever"

             This was the song that started Clay Aiken's music career, "Always and Forever." This was the song Clay sang for his audition on American Idol on January 29th, 2003. It was written by Rod Temperton and initially recorded by Heatwave  and later, recorded by Luther Vandross , among others. "Always and Forever" is such a classic love song, but Clay did an excellent job in 2003 and 2013.


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 What did you think when you saw Clay and heard him perform this song on live television during American Idol?  I can remember the excitement of 2003 and wanting to know more about this young man from North Carolina with a voice like an angel.

Sunday's Song # 2: "Build Me Up Buttercup"

One of my many favorite songs that Clay Aiken sings is "Build Me Up Buttercup."  Clay sang it on American Idol and on his Tried and True Live performance for PBS.

 

 According to Wikipediathis song's writers were Mike d'Abo and Tony Macaulay. The Spotify playlist- click the purple photo here-
Sunday's Songs Playlist on Spotifyhas the original version as recorded by The Foundations. I think the song has a peppy beat, even though the lyrics are not that positive. What do you think?

Happy Valentine's Day, 2017!

            Whether you are in a relationship or married, or single, like me; I hope you have a very Happy Valentine's Day!

                   So, do you have plans for Valentine's Day, or is it just another day? If you are looking for ideas or crafts to celebrate or to have an Anti- Valentine's Day party, Pinterest is a good source. 
      I don't think Clay is performing anywhere today, but there are several videos on YouTube of his Valentine's Day appearance in 2007 on Jimmy Kimmel Live! . It is very sweet, funny, and good, so watch them if you missed it or want to see it again.

        If you'd like to see how Valentine cards have changed over the years,  Guideposts Magazine has an article for you.
                  
                         Have a great day, and make sure to tell someone how much you love them today.

Here's today's word cloud;







 

Sunday's Song: "I Believe We Can"

 a

Today is the beginning of a new series, called "Sunday's Song ." I hope you like it and will make suggestions for it. I will use any song that is clean and maybe related to Clay's music. I chose "I Believe We Can" because it is such a positive song and I'm ready for Spring and Summer. I also started a Spotify playlist, which you can find by clicking the purple button below. Only 1 song, so far, but it will grow.

special, "Summer Belongs To You."   "I Believe We Can"
 is written by Dan Povenmire and Martin OlsonClay Aiken and Chaka Khan lent their voices to animated versions of themselves in the Disney XD movie.  To see more info about that movie, check out two of my previous blog posts(1 and 2)and this site.
