Quotes about Music


I was thinking about music, how very important it is to me. I’m sure it’s like that with many of you kind readers, it sure is with Autumn I am happy to share. Music, it lifts us up, calms us down and is just such a feel good vibe. It was so special in our house growing up, Dad loved singing and we all sang along. It seemed there was always music going in our house, what a wonderful way to grow up. Also, I was very blessed to have married a music man…Dave loved listening to music, as well as being a gifted musician. Autumn is also blessed with her darling man, he is very much a gifted musician.I went looking for some quotes about music and found some very good ones, I sure do hope you kind readers enjoy them, too! 🙂

Music …


Hum a tune

the words appear soon

The music soars, loud and clear

chasing away sorrow or fear

music heals

music feels

like magic at it’s best

just rest

and relax and go with the flow

you’ll know

each melodic note will show

let go and feel, you’ll smile …

tap your feet

don’t miss a beat

all the defeat

will trickle away

you will stay

peaceful and calm

don’t be alarmed

Music is magic …

You do …


You make me smile

baby, you got style

guitar in your hand

leader of the band

The sparkle in your eye

looking kind of shy

you know I only look at you

kind of silly, but very true

So sing your song

and we both belong

where the music flows

it’s quite a show

with you I belong

the feeling so strong

you make me smile

you do really have style

with me you stand proud

and sing it out loud …

I Tried to Resist!


I tried this year, I really tried to resist. Oh, what am I talking about you ask? Guess it  would be wise to explain the strange title! What was I trying to resist…The call of American Idol. But, just like every year I say I was not going to get sucked into watching. It can be heartwrenching watching some of those kids getting voted off. So, alas I have failed…I can’t control myself. I simply love music so, so very much and every year I have found a new talent.

The tryouts can be horrible, if any of you watch you know what I’m saying! I could also say it’s my slight crush on Steven Tyler, but this is only his second season as a judge. For an older man he is pretty awesome, in my humble opinion only of course. I was disappointed years ago to discover he had changed his real last name, it is Tallarico. Being Italian, I wish he would have kept that last name! Steven really is one gifted musician and there’s just something about that look of his…I love the way he dresses and his hair! Those feathers and all woven in are just somehow appealing. I said only a slight crush, the Twinnie chuckles over that term! It’s not serious, it’s not like he’s obtainable after all! I just find him rather endearing as a judge and I can’t help it… He’s just very kind and all to those contestants.

On a serious side note, my  husband Dave was the best and only musician for me, for all time…But he is rocking in Heaven now. That is being totally and completely honest. I have watched and endured Simon Cowell…He’s mellowed a bit. Paula Abdul, what can one say about Paula? She does have a good heart, she really does. Some of those years on American Idol I actually found myself telling Simon off  while watching on TV. Yes, I confess I also watched the first ever season of the X-Factor,  too. I am so in it all for the music!

My 2 favorite years of American Idol, the year Elliott Yamin was on and the Danny Gokey year. They both came in third, which of course I felt was insane. They both clearly should have won, but they both are successful. I love both their music and own it all. Just listen to me, here I am  going on and just rambling up a storm. Another season of American Idol has arrived…Yes I will be watching, I cannot tell a lie! Autumn will sadly not be watching with me, she stopped watching the year Bucky Covington was voted off, the same year Elliott was on. Bucky made the Top Ten and the Twinnie has met him in person 3 times! So did I and that identical twin of his Rocky. Never mind…She still holds a grudge against American Idol and will forevermore! Who is watching? Any of you kind readers with me? Do feel free to share if you please! Rock on is all I have to end this post with!! 🙂 😉

You are my Music Man ~ By Autumn Sunshine


Listening to your music all around

I smile and think it’s the most wonderful sound

Play me a song, sing me a tune

The melody is over too soon

So play another song, my music man

You gotta know, I’m your biggest fan 😉

I love you, no matter what, you know

the love really does continue to grow

a lovely thought

though all time has brought

you to me, me to you

through and through

We were meant to be

our love has been the key

to unlock any door

All the music does is make us see more

all there is, my music man

play me a tune, whenever you can

sing me a song

I’ve loved you so long

together is where we belong …

Christmas song ~ by Autumn Sunshine


It’s time for a song my darling man

get your guitar and sing as loud as you can

Christmas songs

and right where we belong

Under the tree

it’s pretty as can be

So let’s sing a song …

You can chose the one

I’ll sing along

right or wrong

it’s just the spirit of fun

and we’ve begun

to count the days

and all the ways

this Christmas is the best of all

it’s ours,  so let’s deck these halls 😉

and belt out a tune so loud

that we will both be proud

to say “yes we did”

and we feel like kids

love makes that happen you know

love is a gift ….

Don’t You Ever Just Want to Sing it Out Loud?~by Gabby Angel


I sing in the car when driving along to anywhere and everywhere. Of course I have a CD I am singing along with…The looks I get? 😉 OK, I must admit they are mixed, not that any of it matters to me. Because I really and truly aways “Have to Sing it Out Loud!” Growing up with music and having Dad always be singing is no doubt a lot of where this comes from.

Being married to a musician, perhaps strengthened it quite a bit. What brought this thought to mind…The other day when I was on my way to Autumn’s house. My car window was down,  it had turned into a warmer day than I had thought it would be. I was as usual singing along and when stopped at a red light I had some guy sitting on his porch yell question to me. It was “Are you talking to yourself or what?” It made me laugh, but he seemed concerned so I answered. “No, I was singing along to a song and don’t you ever just want to sing it out loud?” He smiled and laughed, said he was a bad singer so no.” But you carry on, you look happy.” Adding a thumbs up with his comment. The light turned to green and I drove on to Autumn’s house. I told her of this happening and we laughed, singing along to us was normal and quite second nature.

We set off to a store in town, both singing to my CD. 🙂 We were shopping around picking up the few things we each needed. When a favorite song of both of ours came on , the store had a lovely radio station tuned in. I started singing along softly without really thinking, honestly. Autumn joined in with me…The next aisle over a kind older gentleman smiled at us. Remarking “It’s nice to see you girls enjoying the music”. His wife had by this time joined him and smiled and said “You girls don’t need to stop singing on our account. You have lovely voices.” Autumn and I exchanged looks, now somewhat feeling embarrassed. We thanked the nice couple again and moved along, last aisle to go!

Another favorite tune came on and I couldn’t help it I started singing Very Softly. Autumn had joined in…It was a song Dave and Craig had sang in their band days and we both really loved it. We again got a comment from a guy who was walking toward us and shopping. “Wow, what a duo you are! Great tune isn’t it? Man, you two have got to be twins…You look familiar!”

Thankfully Autumn answered and turns out he did go to school with us, after all. We had a brief chat with him about school days and music. I had to ask him my question…”Doesn’t the music just ever make you want to sing it out loud?” I am so naive actually how I innocently ask things, but always seeming to never be able to stop myself. After all he could have replied rather unkindly or thought we twinnies really were a bit off the wall. “Yes it does make me want to sing along, but don’t quite have the nerve. My voice isn’t all that good, not like you two have anyway!”

Oh, come on I thought to myself…another person claiming to have a not so good voice? Maybe us twinnies were indeed alone in the wanting to sing it out loud after all. We do march to the beat of our own drummer and always have. We nicely thanked him and chatted a few more minutes…I nudged Autumn hurrying her along with me. Off to the check out line for us. A nice younger girl we know was there, both Autumn and I happy to see her. She was singing along to the song that was now on! A kindred soul, Jess was and we all had a nice little chat while she was ringing up our purchases. Jess is one highly amusing and just one happy 18 year old! She is just a joy to know and always in such a positive frame of mind. She waved us off as we were opening the door to leave, reminding us to “Remember to always sing it out loud!”

It’s nice to find these kindred souls, isn’t it? Autumn and I both will continuing looking for them as we travel through our days. 🙂
