Feeling blue?

A friend from North Carolina just buried his 52 year old sister last week.

Today he emailed me:

Feeling blue….but sometimes we have to.

The song he sang and shared expressing his feelings is “GOOD MORNING HEARTACHE”

I wrote back and referred a song or two that I’d made recordings of and referred him here to this site.

“It’s hard to stay down when one sings even a sad song.

and like Neil Diamond’s song Song Sung Blue puts it:

Hope all is well with you.
It’s good to grieve and get out of your system early on.
Have a good week.”

Singing is good for the soul.

Just like a baby’s lullaby.

These French cows listen attentively to this jazz classic “When the Saints Come Marching in” and to Bill Bailey  https://youtu.be/lXKDu6cdXLI

A friend of mine used to own a dairy in Idaho and he tells that his cows gave more milk when jazz was played during milking time and would sway along in time to the music.

A Mariachi band have an attentive listener bowing when they finish:

From these videos one can link to other videos of animals that like our music.

I discussed this in greater detail at:
