Musings From A Musical Mind

More Than A Feeling

For those of you that enjoy classic rock – here is a song featured below from my generation. I graduated high school in 1979 – so you get the idea.  Ah – they just don’t have music like the 70’s anymore – such a great pity.  I hope you will take a moment to listen to this if you enjoy classics like I do.  It will put you in a great mood!

For me – it takes me back to a time a place that is no more.  Not that I would want it back – I am who I am because of the experiences of the past.  The different choices I made – good and bad – have shaped me and made me more experienced and I hope, wiser.  But like you – I am still learning.  And much of me is still the same person that I was back in high school when this song was popular.  I can remember certain things, places and even smells when hearing a song from my past – it’s crazy what music can do.  It’s powerful and can evoke an emotion so strong and tangible – you can almost reach out and touch it.

Those places and most of those people are gone and have not been a part of my world for 30 years now – but I can still remember when listening to music.  Almost any Fleetwood Mac song reminds me of my drama class – because we once had a beach party and that was what was playing on the radio.  James Taylor, Billy Joel, Earth Wind and Fire, The Commodore’s, Toto, ELO, Styx, Boston, Foreigner, Starship and Elton John also remind me – and take me back to certain events – all connected with high school.  And when one of the “oldies” plays on the radio or in the store – I pause, reflect and remember.

  1. I loved Boston – still do! I loved Dan Folgerberg. One of my favorite albums was Dan Folberberg with Tim Weisberg – “Twin Sons of Different Mothers”. Of course, Credence Clearwater Revival…oh man…the list could on and on…don’t make music like that anymore…(nostalgic sigh)

    • I know what you mean Ron! I will have to listen to that album – pull some of the songs up on youtube from that Dan Folberberg and Tim Weisberg combo – sounds great! Yes – I loved Credence Clearwater Revival too ☺

  2. I was not a big fan of the 70’s music, but I did love Dan Fogleberg and James Taylor.
