What Songs Get Stuck in Your Head?



I get songs rolling around in my head on a regular basis.  How about you?

Sometimes it is a song I love, sometimes it is one that I don't like.  That is awful!

Once in a while it is a commercial song from a television ad.  Marketing in my head, yuk!  Guess the ad people did their job well, there.

It is hard to get those songs out of your head when you want to.  I usually try to replace it with another song.  That works sometimes.

I can just listen to something on the television or my computer - youtube, hulu, pandora, spotify, etc.  That will push the song out.

I use some self-hypnosis techniques, especially if I am trying to go to sleep when the songs start in my mind!  Counting backward always works well with some gentle deep breathes.

Some of the songs in my head lately -

Call Me by Blondie



Footloose by Kenny Loggins




I Love You by Barnie (ugg, unless I am playing with babies)



JG Wentworth Commercial - Scary Opera!



You Should be Dancin' by the Bee Gees



What are yours??

Time for Pumpkins! Fun recipes to try

Pumpkins are a healthy food with lots of benefits for you!  Quote below is from http://homecooking.about.com/od/foodhealthinformation/a/pumpkinhealth.htm

"Pumpkins are a tasty source of vitamins and minerals, particularly beta-carotene, vitamin C, and potassium. It also helps prevent arteriosclerosis, or hardening of the arteries, which can lead to strokes and/or heart attacks."

Here are a few recipes I would love to try this season!

Love is all you need! Nice thought


I remember a time when we did believe this!




The idea is a little naive, but doesn't it make you happy?

The Beatles


Lennon/McCartney

Love, love, love, love, love, love, love, love, love.
There's nothing you can do that can't be done.
Nothing you can sing that can't be sung.
Nothing you can say but you can learn how to play the game
It's easy.
There's nothing you can make that can't be made.
No one you can save that can't be saved.
Nothing you can do but you can learn how to be you
in time - It's easy.

All you need is love, all you need is love,
All you need is love, love, love is all you need.
Love, love, love, love, love, love, love, love, love.
All you need is love, all you need is love,
All you need is love, love, love is all you need.
There's nothing you can know that isn't known.
Nothing you can see that isn't shown.
Nowhere you can be that isn't where you're meant to be.
It's easy.
All you need is love, all you need is love,
All you need is love, love, love is all you need.
All you need is love (all together now)
All you need is love (everybody)
All you need is love, love, love is all you need.

Thinking about Roses

I love Roses, and enjoy them more every year.   Here are some end of summer roses from our front yard!




My Mom used to own a flower shop, and roses are very special for many reasons!

Here is a site that explains the meaning of giving different roses for different reasons -
http://www.rkdn.org/roses/colors.asp

Most of you probably know that a red rose is for romantic love.  But did you know that giving a red rosebud is a sign of purity and loveliness?  Or that two roses twined together means "marry me"?

A good song that I have always liked that mentions a Rose by Seal!

Indiana Wants Me!

R Dean Taylor - Indiana Wants Me 1970


This was a top hit in 1970.  I can't believe that it was 42 years ago!!

The story of this song is a man who killed another man who insulted his woman.  Now he is wanted by the police.

Some of the copies that were given to radio stations had the siren sounds taken off because it confused drivers.  I feel that way now with some of the songs on the radio! 

Lyrics

Songwriter: TAYLOR, R. DEAN

Indiana wants me
Lord

I can't go back there.
Indiana wants me
Lord

I can't go back there

I wish I had you to talk to.
If a man ever needed dyin'

He did
No one had the right
To say what he said about you

It's so cold and lonely here
Without you.
Out there the law's acomin'

I'm gettin' so tired of runnin'
Indiana wants me
Lord

I can't go back there.
Indiana wants me
Lord

I can't go back there.
I wish I had you to talk to.
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsmode.com/lyrics/r/r_dean_taylor/indiana_wants_me.html ]
It hurts to see the man that I've become

And to know I'll never see the morning
Sunshine on the land

I'll never see your smiling face
Or touch your hand.
If just once more I could see you

Our home and our little baby.

I hope this letter finds it's way to you

Forgive me
Love
For the shame I put
You through and all the tears

Hang on
Love
To the mem'ries
Of those happy years.
Red lights are flashin' around me
Yeah
Love
It looks like they found me.

Indiana wants me...

Singing Nuns, wonderful moments from around the world with Spiritual Women

 I just started doing some research today on singing Nuns.  I was inspired by hearing some songs from the 60's and remembering my mixed blessings of going to Catholic School during that time!

Not all of the nuns singing here are Christian.  There is a video of some Tibetan nuns, which I found interesting because I have often seen Tibetan monks, but have not seen Nuns before.

The videos are all from Youtube, and the quality is not always professional.

I respect all people who follow their spiritual paths.  Even though I am a Protestant ordained minister myself, I have studied and experienced people and their faith around the world.  It is beautiful to hear them sing and express themselves!


The Singing Nun - "Dominique" (1963)



Gregorian Chant - Benedictine Nuns "Ave Maria"


Tibetan and Nepalese Nuns singing, Nagi Gompa, Nepal







Benedictine nuns at Kylemore Abbey, Connemara, Co. Galway sing Latin vespers in the miniature cathedral on the Kylemore estate. from Youtube description.


This was from the Ed Sullivan show, I think in 1964.
