Did you vote today?  Soaring Spirits is in the running to win a $35K branding/marketing package.  Check it out on the home page here at WV in the events section. I am voting every day.

Good for you Leendah. It's always good when we can do something that helps us heal.

yes I remember writing down all the words (before you could look them up easily) and singing along with the albums....And Stevie Wonder made some great great music - Songs in the Key of Life definitely a favorite of mine....I wanted to mention I had some very good closure at Mother Cabrini Shrine recently - I told myself I wasn't going to leave (was there for hours) until I felt "something that spoke to me" about healing and while I'm not a regular Sunday church goer I did feel more calm and more able to take on things after I left.  Maybe it's just that I took the time to address the sadness and regret, etc. instead of walking away from it.

I still have my Stevie Wonder Songs in the Key of Life Album from 1976.  I used to love how you took time to memorize all the words to the songs.  My mom still has a Victrola.  Long live cd's.

Music soothes the soul..........

Some of the older bands that are still playing are not sounding so good anymore - I heard that about Gordon Lightfoot's voice recently.  So I think we're better off sometimes listening the to 8-track (woops), the cassette or album (woops again!) - how about the CD?  LOL!  It's good to hear Fleetwood Mac still sounds good!  I'm still a big fan of the Moody Blues and heard them play with the Denver Symphony at Red Rocks a few years back.....

OMG I hear Rod Stewart and Santana together 30 years ago as well. Carlos didn;t sound too good then but Rod never disappoints... I have seen rod maybe a dozen times and "Rumors" could sing every song still .. they do sound good together they where on tv recently Jimmy Fallon and the tonight show.... and a day time am news show like today or was it Good morning america... sounded as good as ever and Lord knows Stevie wasn't the best to herself early on ... but you'd never know it..... I hate to  sound like an old coddger but they aren't making much music worth listening to these days >>LOL  OMG I sound like my parents lol

I attended a concert with friends recently - Rod Stewart and Santana - my husband would have loved Santana, hoping he could hear the music somehow.......

OMG Jocelyn - do I remember Fleetwood Mac's Rumor album - it was played everywhere all through college!
