STILL GOING STRONG AFTER ALL THESE YEARS

My taste in music is pretty eclectic. and runs from evergreens to new age meditation music with rock ballads, blues and reggae in between. For music lovers, Youtube is heaven-sent! I can spend hours listening to my favourite tunes and bands, and discovering new ones to add to my ever-growing playlist.

The only annoying thing about Youtube is the uploading. But once it is done, and you hit REPLAY, it's sheer bliss to relax and enjoy the audio-visual experience uninterrupted.

I've dug up a few of my favourite songs from the 1960s and 1970s to share. Isn't it fabulous that these guys - the Cascades, Cliff Richard, Brian Hyland, The Eagles and Pink Floyd are still performing? I would give an arm and a leg to catch Pink Floyd live.

Hope the songs bring you some happy memories of those days when we were young. ENJOY!

I am surprised you are a big fan of Pink Floyd-how about Frank Zappa and The Mothers of Invention?

Yeah! I enjoyed the music. Thank you. You should lsiten to group Heart, their famous songs "Dog and Butterfly" and "Barracuda". Easy to find on You tube.

I am equally but delightfully surprised that you like Frank Zappa! His music was a staple in our house in the 1960s. Pity his demise meant no more albums from him. His "Little House I Used to Live in' is playing in the background even as I write this.

And Alwin, thanks for the suggestion. The only Heart songs I know are "Alone" and "What about love". Guess I'm not too much of a Heart fan :-)
