#SongTuesday

Lately, I heard this song again on the radio, and it reminded me of a series I loved watching 25 to 30 years ago. So, enjoy a classic song from 1969.

#HitsByYears – 1979

Last but not least, here are two of my favorite songs of all times. I don’t think I need to explain a lot. Enjoy!

I hope you liked the choices I made for that year. Have a great Friday and a happy weekend!

The song I am sharing today comes from a lady who doesn’t need to explain her haircolor… hehe.

A Romantic #HitsByYears Tuesday and thank God, there are some really beautiful love songs to choose from in 1979. I couldn’t just stick with one and here we go with two of them!

#HitsByYears – 1979

The past 2 months were really tough and I am glad to be off this week. I spent the past weekend in a spa and when you are reading this I am probably on my way back home. Since I could not schedule my regular posts for this week, I wanted to enjoy some more hits of past times with you.

#HitsByYears – 1978

#HitsByYears – 1978

I barely hear one of her songs on the radio anymore. But that doesn’t change the fact that we all know many of her songs. Most of all, due to her specific voice and music style.

#HitsByYears – 1978

Two great singers of an era mostly make a good combo… as the following song proves.

#HitsByYears – 1978

As I told you last week, it is time again for some trips back on memory lane. After a little drought (at least for me) finding some classic song from the years 76 and 77, we arrived in 1978. And here it starts again to become difficult picking only five songs of a fantastic variety. But no words anymore but only great sounds.

#HitsByYears – 1977

Some artists have been great since the first time they showed up. One of those artists is the one I want to conclude the 1977 week. Warning: The song will keep playing in your head for the rest of the day… Happy Friday!

#HitsByYears – 1977

Since this is actually the day I am posting some #MomentsOfJoy, there has to be a song that goes along with that idea. This song makes me especially joyful. I am not sure if the song was already released in 1976 since there is different information about it. But… who cares as long we enjoy 😄

#HitsByYears – 1977

Happy Romantic Tuesday! Who remembers Rita Coolidge? When I hear her name, I think of All Time High which was the soundtrack for the James Bond movie Octopussy. It was the first Bond movie I saw. That might be the reason why I liked Roger Moore playing Bond the most. But today we go with an older song of Coolidge. It is new to me but I am glad I found it. Enjoy

#HitsByYears – 1977

School was calling again last weekend. It was an even longer turn this time (Thursday through Sunday). That’s why I go for another #HitsByYears week. I wish you a good start to your new week but try to take it easy 😉

Hits By Years – 1976

Wow, it is already the last day of the 1976 – week. I want to conclude it with my favorite song of that year. I remember that it was played up and down the radio stations. Only decades later when I heard it again, I understood the funny and cute meaning of the song (remember, English is not my first language… hehe). Who remembers that song?

Hits By Years – 1976

I haven’t heard this song in ages but I remember it so well. Although I was only 6 years when it was released, I remember how I always loved it. Doesn’t it give you an uplifting push?

Hits By Years – 1976

For today, I picked a song which I am still hearing on the radio at times. I am sure you all know it.

Hits By Years – 1975

The last day of the 1975 hits week has come. Of course, I can impossibly close this week without sharing one of the greatest compositions in rock/pop history ever. Happy Friday and have a great weekend!

Hits By Years – 1975

Another song, which feels typical for the 70s to me, comes from Linda Ronstadt. It is not my favorite one of hers but I like it and it reminds me a lot of my childhood.

Hits By Years – 1975

The many languages here in Europe are of course also reflected in the music we hear on the radio every day. Today, English is the most commonly heard language. But the further back in time you go, the more the hits were mainly sung in the national language of the singer or the band. I believe that at least my European friends may remember the song I am sharing today.

Hits By Years – 1975

Another course weekend has come to an end yesterday which for another Hits By Years week. We have arrived in 1975 and for the start I picked a song from a Dutch Band that was very big at that time. To me it appeared as if it was played everywhere and I remember me singing it. Who remembers this song too?

Hits By Years – 1974

The last day of the 1974 hits’ week has already arrived. Hmm, what song to choose for a really good last one? What about this one? Happy Friday everybody!

Hits By Years – 1974

In 1974 one of the most famous bands had their breakthrough due to winning the European song contest. ABBA was pretty unknown at that time. It is even more interesting to watch the original video of their performance at the song contest from 1974 since we know how far they have come.

Hits By Years – 1974

Who does remember the 70’s Kung Fu series with David Carradine as Kwai Chang Caine? The song I am sharing today was the sound track of the series in the German version. Whenever I hear it, reflexively I think of David Carradine.

Hits By Years – 1974

The time has come again for sharing some trips back on memory lane. Last weekend was another school weekend (Friday morning through Sunday evening) and since I had no time for scheduling posts I will share some more hits from long ago. Let’s get it started:

Monday Song

Last weekend was the first one of my phytotherapy education. I am excited that it finally started. But it also means, that on 8 weekends during this year I will be in a classroom all day from Friday through Sunday. I decided that on those weekends I won’t work on any posts for my blog. Therefore, today there will be no Monday post. But instead, I scheduled a song post once again.

Hits By Years – 1973

music-2087771_960_720

Wow, another week of great songs from long-gone times is over. How could I conclude it without sharing this song which again takes my heart eastwards? Happy Friday, everybody! Read more ›

Hits By Years – 1973

music-2087771_960_720

Today’s song is again one of those which feels more like an 80s’ song to me since I got introduced to it in the mid 80s. Back then I did not pay attention to the lyrics (remember my mother tongue is German) neither did I bother what the song is about. So, doing this series really shines a new light on many songs I thought I already knew and makes them even more meaningful to me. Read more ›

Hits By Years – 1973

music-2087771_960_720

This is one of those songs I don’t have specific memories of but one of those I simply since forever (which is obvious since I was three years old when it was published). Hearing this song takes me back looking through the eyes of a person which I am not anymore and still feels familiar. Like a dress I wore long ago and put it back on again. I don’t know how to explain it better but I think you know what I mean. Read more ›

Hits By Years – 1973

music-2087771_960_720

Yes, I know, there is a popular cover version of the song below. But that one never did it to me. Of course, I have always reflexively compared it with the original and to me the cover version has not half of its depth. But however, there would be no cover version without this beautiful song. So enjoy! Read more ›

Hits By Years – 1973

music-2087771_960_720

New day and a new week of Hits by Years. We continue with 1973 and I am starting with a real earworm. So get up … no matter what the title says! Read more ›

Hits by Years – 1972

music-2087771_960_720

For the last song of this special hits week, I go with one of my favorite songs ever. A song that always makes my eyes watery listening to it but watching this video touches my heart even more. A song that has to be part of this collection of greatest song of 1972. Happy Friday! Read more ›

Hits by Years – 1972

music-2087771_960_720

This 1972 week is almost coming to an end although there are so many more great songs which would be worth sharing. It is always a task to select only 5 songs. But I am sure you agree with me that this song must not be missing. Read more ›

Hits by Years – 1972

music-2087771_960_720

The song I am sharing today I know from my teenager years although it was released when I was only 2 years old. I think the excitement for heavy mental was not so big for my parents … lol. I love this song since although it is a 70s’s song it reminds me of the 80s and being at the discotheque with my class mates. Read more ›

Hits by Years – 1972

music-2087771_960_720

Hi, everybody and welcome in the new week. As you may have figured, this week (and probably the next one too) I will share songs of long-gone days instead of my usual posts. There is too much going on on the weekends (I spare you the details – remember rule #6.😉) and I cannot manage to write or schedule those posts. So be curious and enjoy the journey back in time.

Friday Song

music-2087771_960_720

A week before I went on vacation, I was at a Status Quo concert and still I am listening to their songs on YouTube when I am sitting at my laptop. So what better song could I pick for a Friday in Summer? Have a great weekend, friends! Read more ›

Hits By Years – 1971

music-2087771_960_720

Of course, the last song of 1971 I am sharing here has to be a real classic song. I am sure that no one will be disappointed with my choice. And in addition to it, it makes a wonderful thought to go with for the weekend. Be a dreamer and keep imagining as long as the world does live as one. Read more ›

Hits By Years – 1971

music-2087771_960_720

Hits By Years – 1971

They Still Rock!!

IMG_20190706_223344.jpg

Last Saturday I had tickets for Status Quo. They were the main act at an annual festival in our country. Of course, they look older BUT boy did they bring the hall to a full boil! It was already a hot day and hot inside but nobody cared. We jumped, danced sang, clapped our hands, … It was an amazing experience and I felt like a teenager again hearing those songs again.

Hits By Years – 1970

music-2087771_960_720

Due to the filled weekends and evenings after work of the past weeks, I am not able to catch up with my own schedule. Either I have been busy renovating the house, preparing for another upcoming move, I was simply off or preparing family events. This threw me completely off my usual posting habits. That’s why I need to take this week off from the regular posts… BUT… I have had the idea for a new song series.

Last night I watched this amazing movie in an IMAX movie theatre. It was the first day of release over here. Like most of you I love the songs of Queen and sadness still fills me when thinking of the loss of Freddie. Although I am not used to making movie reviews and also I basically don’t have time to do so. But this movie is really worth it when even I am doing it in a nutshell. Read more ›

Who doesn’t like Supertramp? There are many songs most of all their earlier ones which I especially like. But there is one song that spoke a lot to me for many years. First as the one hiding and later when I had left my shell as the one talking to those hiding. However, this song is a masterpiece in lyrics together with the whole composition regardless from which side you look at it. Read more ›

Five Day Song Challenge – Day 5 / Song of the Day

This day welcomed me with a thick layer of snow. It already snowed yesterday. It was only from time to time but when it did, it was worse than in winter. I just worry about my poor trees and hope that this was it.

20170419_072910.jpgThis is my poor willow. Usually, its branches are upright and it truly looks like a big crown.

Anyway, I want to send another big THANK YOU to Holly of House of Heart for nominating me for a great music challenge. It is already the last day and I enjoyed it a lot!!  Read more ›

Song of the Day

I dug a little in the past and picked a song from the late 70s for today. That song takes me back to the days when I went to elementary school. The radio always played in the morning and this song welcomed me very often during breakfast. As a nine year-old I was amazed that men were able to sing that high… Happy Wednesday! Read more ›
