Music Reflection Mondays #18 – Christmas Favourites

Good night and welcome back to Music Reflection Mondays!  How was your day?   Was it like most Mondays, demanding all the energy you’ve got left over from the weekend?  I have no doubt that you persevered and conquered all if not most of your tasks today. 🙂

So what are we getting into tonight? Nothing too heavy, my youngest son Luke is turning 4 years old tomorrow so I’ve been busy finalizing arrangements for his big day.

As October comes to a close tomorrow, we move into November one month closer to Christmas my favourite time of the year. 🙂 The music just melts your heart and gets most of us in the Christmas spirit.


The decorations, decorating, the cleaning, the baking and cooking, time with family, the Christmas shows, the many aromas, the many memories from our past and the new ones we create in the present all solidified in our minds and hearts along with some beautiful music.

Here are some of my favourite people to listen to at Christmas time:

There are so many wonderful songs and people to listen to that it’s near impossible to list them all tonight.  Are any of your favourites listed above? If yes, who?  If not, who did I mistakenly forget?

Have a wonderful night. Thanks for stopping by. 🙂




Music Reflection Mondays #15

Good Morning everyone! Pleasant Monday greetings to each of you. 🙂  How was your weekend?  My weekend was full of heavy rainfall, thunder and lightning so I stayed indoors. 

Although the sun has graced our beautiful sky this morning it is clear that the clouds still have a mouthful to say as they make every effort to push the sun out of the way.  I won’t let them dampen my mood though and neither should you.  🙂


For today’s post let’s look at some songs that I just can’t get out of my head lately.

Are any of your favourites listed above?  Please share what song or songs are just stuck in your head lately.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day and a blessed week.

Now in all fairness to you all, there are just too many great songs out there to ever narrow down a list to just 20 songs.  I don’t know how some people do it but it was tough.  The above are just a few of my favourites.  Do we have any in common?  If we do, which ones?

Until next time, let the music settle your mind and help you unwind. 🙂

Have a great night and thanks as always for stopping by. Make this week a great one!





Music Reflection Mondays #3

Welcome back to Music Reflection Mondays!  I hope everyone had a great day. I’m sorry that this is posting so late but that’s life sometimes we just have to roll with it.  This week I’m going to highlight the artistes and some of their songs that started shaping my love for music at a very early age. I had my dad to thank for that he listened to a lot of music back then.

Now when I look back at my childhood there are certain artistes that stand out because they were the people I would see on the television, hear on the radio, or hear on the cassette player in my father’s car.   There was just something special and unique about each one that drew me to their music.

To this day, they all have a special place in my heart because they take me back to a time in my life when all I had to be was me – Cherylene. 🙂  I remember singing along to their songs and trying to dance along.

Some of these artistes in alphabetical order include: Abba, Kenny Rogers,  Lionel Richie, Madonna, Michael Bolton, Michael Jackson and Tina Turner, just to name a few.  Now I’m sure some of you know them.  Do we share any favourites?

Michael Jackson: You Are Not Alone, Bellie Jean, Beat it, Bad, Thriller, Heal the World, Man in The Mirror, Will You Be There and The Way You Make Me Feel. There are so many others but we just don’t have the time to list them all.  Michael Jackson may his soul rest in peace is one of my all-time favourites.  I love his music.  He is a legend and has been accredited by many of today’s musicians and singers for his influence on their careers.

Who stands out from your childhood? How did he or she make you feel when you heard their music? Feel free to share in comments below.

So dear friends, enjoy the rhythm, move to the beat, clap your hands, move your feet whatever your body compels you to do.  Music is there for us to enjoy. Past or present it does not matter because all of them have the power to reach you if you let them.

From time to time it’s good to go back to the old days and listen or watch some of the people who’ve paved the way for so many others.

Thank you for stopping by.  Have a great week!
