A Song for Sunday

A Song for Sunday is a chance for me to find my favourite songs and post them on my blog.

Songs and music, possibly more than anything else, sculpt the people we grow to be. I grew up in an almost wholly classical music environment until my dad gave me a radio and a set of headphones when I was about 13 so I could listen to music in my room. He was also the first person to give me a 'pop' album - to my mother's horror - and persuaded my mother to let me have a record player in my bedroom.
This resulted in my taste veering all the way across the spectrum from Chopin to AC/DC, with stops at Cliff Richard (that first album), Elvis and Abba.

When I visit my mother and dad now, it is still a wholly classical environment. Without my own room and stuff I find I am straining at the invisible leash by the end of the day. When I am there I stay in a local B&B and every evening I stroll back along the beach. I plug in my CD player and crank the volume waaaaay up...........


SO cleansing.......

hey cq. . . comments got messed up so I came over to make sure you got seen. . . I had Rainbow Connection playing on my computer when I started your music--an interesting juxtaposition.

Nothing like some big hair "arena rock." Thanks for sharing. I miss the eighties so badly.

I liked 'Schools out'!

Popped in from Michele's this evening, hope you've had a good weekend.

You're bringing back my high school memories CQ!

I love cranking up the stereo. . . it is not so expected from a nearly 57 year old, but it so motivates me.

I have always liked this song. I wish that I could do my eye makeup like that. I have a comic book that has Alice Cooper in it...wasn't an easy thing to get.

I just love the way he sounds in this video....voice is so neat. Ozzy sounds like this sometimes.

Ah...and I am NOT stopping in from Wendy's. I am stopping in just because. :-)

I have to go listen to that song again.

Been a long time since i listened to Alice Cooper.
I love music.
My PC, stereo or IPOD is always blasting it out.
Music makes the world a little brighter

Have a nice day.

This whole period in music went past me, though I like Alice Cooper...I never can understand what they are saying, and so many of the songs sound alike to me, musically speaking....I'm sorry about that, but there it is, my dear....

My taste in music is so different from my mom's thank God!

I'm not big on Alice Cooper. I'm a country girl! Martina McBride, Tim McGraw..........
