Musings From A Musical Mind

Archive for the ‘classic rock’ Category


Another timeless Fleetwood Mac song – that really takes me back.  Originally written by Stevie Nicks about her life and decisions about love when she was young – but then her father always thought the song was about him – so she later dedicated it to him ♥  He passed away in 2006.

I took my love, I took it down
I climbed a mountain and I turned around
And I saw my reflection in the snow covered hills
til the landslide brought it down

Oh, mirror in the sky, what is love?
Can the child within my heart rise above?
Can I sail through the changing ocean tides?
Can I handle the seasons of my life?

Well, I’ve been afraid of changing cause I’ve
Built my life around you
But time makes you bolder
Even children get older
And I’m getting older, too

Well, I’ve been afraid of changing cause I’ve
Built my life around you
Time makes you bolder
Even children get older
And I’m getting older, too
I get older, too

I took my love and took it down
I climbed a mountain, I turned around
And if you see my reflection in the snow covered hills
The landslide brought it down
The landslide brought it down


Dream On

My Favorite song by Aerosmith – It was featured on last night’s episode of “Glee”


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.
