Since some of us serenade the plants and critters during the growing season thought it would be nice to set up jukebox of tunes for mornings wake up, afternoon box for play and work and evening box of tunes for cruise time down. I'll start with a morning tune by Judy Garland - Rock-A-Bye Your Baby With A Dixie Melody, Afternoon box with Helen Shapiro - Walkin' Back to Happiness and ABBA - Thank You for The Music, evening box star with Cilla Black - You're My World and closed it down with Handel- Violin Sonata in D minor.
Add to the box and let's build a great repertoire of jams for our plants and critters!
Adding to the morning tunes..ABBA- If It Wasn't for The Nights, Neil Diamond - Sweet Caroline, Agnetha Faltskog - Perfume in The Breeze, Alicia Keyes - Diary. These ought to get the birds and squirrels jumping!
No music for the critters today. Rain, thunderstorms, showers more rain. Guess I'll sort through the music index and find boogie woogie piano and blues. Might even check into Lounge and Swing tunes.
