If you are a child of the 60’s
If you know what I mean when I say….”I give it an 84 because it has a good beat and it’s easy to dance to..”
And….. if music helps you cope
then this blog is for you.
Recently, a good blogger friend posted about anger and how one copes with anger. http://barefootbaroness.org/2012/09/20/unspent-anger/
My Lady Baroness sings the anger away…. it’s her way of getting through it. (read her blogs …she is pretty amazing)
Music, for me, helps me cope with Life in general. When I am alone, it becomes a good friend, when I am down or sad it perks me up. When I want to get pumped up about a project, music helps me make it happen.
I actually DO have a playlist called My Happy List. ( I also have a playlist titled Songs To Make Me Cry. but that’s food for another post)
Right here, I want to share My Happy List with you. (drum roll)
