85 years of music and memories Part 1   1 comment

I was doodling on a piece of paper and started to write titles of songs that brought back memories and before I knew it I had 500 titles!! Well, after 85 years of songs that mean something to you, that trigger a memory keep on coming back–so here are some of the songs, in no particular order–and in some case a snippet of memory! 

1. 1945–the first time I remember being stunned by a song and singer in a Broadway Musical: John Raitt singing the “Soliloquy” in “Carousel”
