Musings From A Musical Mind

I have the privilege today of being featured on my good friend and blogging buddy, JoJo on her  blog called: The Art Of Eloquence.  I have known JoJo for almost 3 years online, followed her facebook page and blog and found her to not only be an inspiring and trained communicator – but also a special friend as well.  Check out her blog – you will be blessed!  She asked me a few weeks ago if she could feature me and I was honored to be a part of her blog – you will find the interview here.

Most of you know that I love 70’s music – so here’s a blast from the past from the group “Argent”.  The year it was released – 1972.  I was 11 years old.  Heard this for the first time in many years on the program “Men of a Certain Age” the other night and just had to find it and play it for you.  Brings back a lot of memories for me.  Hope you enjoy!

God Bless

And if it’s bad

Don’t let it get you down, you can take it

And if it hurts

Don’t let them see you cry, you can take it

Hold your head up, hold your head up

Hold your head up, hold your head high

And if they stare

Just let them burn their eyes on you moving

And if they shout

Don’t let them change a thing what you’re doing

Hold your head up, hold your head up

Hold your head up, hold your head high

  3. I was not familar with that song but that record player brought back some memories. My first record was Michael Jackson’s Man in The Mirror.

    • Thanks so much for coming over to my blog Rob! I LOVE Michael Jackson’s Man in the Mirror – had a 7 year old student of mine sing it at my recital last month – it was ADORABLE!!

  4. And…thanks for sharing on my blog. I was so happy to share you with my readers.

  5. I remember it well. I was 10 yrs old when this came out.

  6. I can’t remember this song. Not sure why. Oh wait, I wasn’t born until 1976. 🙂

  7. Wow, talk about an oldie but goodie! Love this song even if it does make me feel old. LOL You were 11 in 1972 and I was getting married. Hard to believe it will be 39 years very soon. It was hard enough telling my students when they asked that I graduated high school 42 years ago. 🙂
