The Soundtrack

Down the memory lane I have been sliding. I have made a soundtrack for my book of poems, it has been very nostalgic listening to these songs. It wasn’t really easy to choose these songs. There is such an amount of music from the late 60’s, early and middle 70’s that bring memories to my mind.

Some songs are named in my poems; such are for example Stairway to heaven, Samba Pa Ti and Tallahassee Lassie. They were an easy pick for this soundtrack. The rest of the songs are the ones that make me remember.

Hope you will enjoy this musical time trip!

Jimi Hendrix: Purple Haze

Janis Joplin: Cry Baby

The Doors: Light My Fire

Santana: Samba Pa Ti

Black Sabbath: Paranoid

Led Zeppelin: Stairway to Heaven

Creedence Clearwater Revival: Travellin Band

Uriah Heep: Easy Livin'

Hurriganes; Tallahassee Lassie

Deep Purple: Smoke On The Water

Slade: Coz I Luv U

Mott the Hoople: All The Young Dudes

Thank you for making my afternoon with this nostalgic musical trip to the past. My favourites: All The Young Dudes, I also like Joplin's broken voice - it's kind of touching, her whole being is quite touching. And of course - Jim Morrison, my first choice, perhaps. It's quite amazing how such a rebellious looking guy can sound so 'middle-class', so middle of the road, in a way. I think, his voice is very smooth and kind of problem-free...

Glad you have enjoyed your afternoon, Kutuharju. I had almost forgotten that song of Mott the Hoople when I stumbled into it in Youtube.
Joplin's voice is for me The Voice of female singing, and I sure would like to spend an evening with Morrison, not the rest of my life, though:))

What a full program! A lot of "classics". Among these, I believe I put Janet as my favourite!
(Sincere thanks for the nice news on my blog yesterday!!)

Ha ha, that particular line suits cloud loving men, chrome3d!

Put your cursor on the flower, click at the right and there will come something like " save the photo" and you can save it on your computer and move it to your blog, if you like to do that, Trijnie. Or then you can just let me water the flowers and you can pop in my blog from time to time just to see:))

gmg, welcome again! The music is waiting for you here.

Yes, I saw you had already put the flowers in your blog, Peter. They are easy to take care of -not too much water, remember!
