Let The Music Move You: Take Me Back To Those Good Days Of REAL Music

Music is seriously my life. I don't mean playing the piano, but actually in listening to music. I can't go a day without listening to some form of music. I won't exaggerate and say that I would 'die', but I seriously would not be able to function as well as I usually would be able to. Music calms me down, it helps me think, it helps with a lot of things. When I feel depressed or sad, I'll listen to (irony coming up) depressing songs and it seriously makes me feel better. When I listen to music while I write, it gives me a new boost of energy. It doesn't matter if it's country, Christian, good pop, instrumentals, classical, as long as the lyrics are good and so is the beat. But, I want to spread some light on some "old" music that I love.

Now, one thing that you'll learn about me, is that I don't just listen to one band. I listen to one or two songs from this band, three songs from this artist, one song from this guy. I don't really have a band that I actually completely love, aside from Anthem Lights or Casting Crowns. It's just the truth. Here are some song that I love to listen to when I want REAL music. No computer, no techo-ish sounding things, just REAL music with REAL instruments playing.

1. My Way by Frank Sinatra

2. What a Wonderful World by Louis Armstrong

3. Under My Skin by Frank Sinatra

4. Dream a Little Dream of Me by Doris Day

5. Beyond the Sea by Bobby Darin

6. I Don't Want to Set the World on Fire by The Ink Spots

7. Ain't That a Kick in the Head by Dean Martin

And here are some songs without words to listen to: 

8. Sing Sing Sing by Benny Goodman

9. In the Mood by Glenn Miller 

Check these awesome songs out, tell me if you like them, all that jazz. 

Have a great week!


  1. I love old songs like these! I haven't heard them all but I do love 2 and 5 and 9. I love Glenn Miller. Have you hear Pennsylvania 65000 and Moonlight Serenade? Those are two of my favorites by him. I LOVE In the Mood.
    By the way, today's your birthday right? Happy Birthday!!!

  2. Haha... this is going to seem like such a pointless, random comment... I apologise in advance... I was just looking through your "Phantom of the Opera" posts, and I just wanted to say, its awesome that there is another person other than my nanny and myself who thinks that Erik and Christine to stay together! *high five* ERIK FOREVER! lol
