Monday Song

music-2087771_960_720

Good morning and happy Monday to everyone. We had a wonderful time in Vienna celebrating my mom’s 70th birthday. She did not expect us to come over and so the joy was even greater on both sides. My mom is truly the rock for us three daughters. Whatever it is, she is there. I am happy and thankful we have her. Read more ›

Monday Song

music-2087771_960_720

The song I am sharing today is directly connected with memories of my first trip to the US. I was 15 and we flew over to NYC as part of a travel group. It was the year 1985. For the younger readers, at that time we had neither iPods nor smartphones. But I had my walkman (what is a walkman🤪) and serveral tapes – most of them I dubbed of long-playing records o “singles” myself.
Long-playing records? Those black oversized CDs which you had to put on a turntable and play with a needle which transferred the sound. “Singles”? The smaller version. There was only one song on each side. Yes, records have had two sides and you had to turn the record when one side was played to the end. Also we had to be very careful not to scratch the surface or the song was ruined either by the needle jumping over that scratch or because it got stuck and repeated the same part over and over again. They were not as robust as CDs. We did not have CDs either at that time yet, by the way.
So, I remember sitting in that bus with my headphones on. We had visited Washington D.C. and we were on the way back. It was already dark outside and I simply enjoyed being there and listening to the songs on my tape. Read more ›

How amazing that Christmas Day is on a (Romantic) Tuesday this year. How could I let go of posting a song and writing a poem although I am on a break? Have a wonderful and happy Christmas Day.

Today we are lightening the 4th candle on our Advent wreath. It is the most exciting Advent Sunday because it is the last one before Christmas. Again, I want to share one of my favorite Christmas songs with you. I hope you like my choice. There are so many wonderful versions out there. For whatever reason, this is still my favorite version. Probably it simply takes me back to golden days and lets them shine again. Have a blessed Sunday!

Happy Monday, everyone! Christmas season has begun over here and I visited the first Chrismas market on the weekend. The most wonderful time of the year has begun. At least for me and for many of you too. I love baking cookies, wrapping gifts, still thinking about little treats for neighbors and co-workers, spending more time with the people who mean most to me, and visiting Christmas markets.

Although we have Christmas stuff in the stores for about 6 weeks the official Christmas season only starts at the first advent. The 4 Sundays leading up to Christmas we call Advent Sundays. It is a tradition that we are lightening a candle on each of those Sundays on our Advent wreath. We start with one candle until there are burning 4 on the 4th Sunday. So, the most wonderful time of the year starts this Sunday. Read more ›

I want to stick with the Queen theme also for this Friday. I picked a song which has impressed and moved me from the moment I heard it for the first time. Freddie Mercury has my deepest respect for how he performed this song knowing what was coming and already obviously ill. How powerful this song is. It almost appears as if Freddy wants to comfort his fans with this song. A fighter with the heart of a most professional artist.
RIP Freddie. Read more ›

Good morning, everybody.  I was barely around on the weekend. Not only at work, everything is pretty busy and hectic, also the evenings and the weekends have been packed with a lot of things to be organized and prepared. As some of you know, my daughter is getting married in October. Now we are in the midst of the end spurt.  Appointments and last time-consuming preparations are filling evenings and weekends, next to usual and additional duties. So, I may be disappearing a bit more often until the wedding.  Read more ›

#RomanticTuesday Song

music-2087771_960_720

When I checked YouTube for this week’s songs I stumbled over this one and made it my Tuesday song right away. How romantic is that when you meet someone and realize that you must have loved that person long before you met them. There is some kind of familiarity between you both and you think you have known each other forever. As if were brought back together again after a long time of separation.  Read more ›

Sorry… again I managed to schedule my Friday song a week later… I hope you still accept it!

Another 80’s song to end this week. I was surprised that when I was in the States the last time, I heard an English version of a song of one of Austria’s most famous artists, Falco (Amadeus). The English version seems to be well known, so, I decided to share the original German version which is partly in Viennese dialect since he was Viennese. Happy Friday! Read more ›

Monday Song

music-2087771_960_720

Did you notice that at times you are talking to someone about something important for you and after a while, you notice that that that person looked at you but did not listen at all. They only focus on what they want to say next or on what they want from the situation regardless of other people involved. They only hear what they want to hear and then they log off. The problem is that they overlook important details that way… I just thought of that when I heard this song lately because it reminded me of my colleague at work… life cannot only be roses… lol! So, let’s see the irony in each situation and take it with humor! Happy Monday! Read more ›

Some days ago just out of the blue I found myself singing a song which I haven’t heard in ages. I heard it firs on Solid Gold. Solid Gold was a US hit parade television show of the 80’s and it was also shown on Austrian TV. I watched it every Saturday evening. What I loved a lot about it were the outstanding dancers who performed songs between the performances of the stars – and one dancer looked like Michael Jackson😍 Do you remember the song? Read more ›

Song of the Day

song-of-the-day

I believe that love conquers all as long as it is really love. Love is not staying strong for each other when times are good and giving up or turning away when things get difficult.  It is not falling apart and giving up only because things are not going as desired. It is standing up and giving each other hold. It is backing up each other and standing tall with and for each other even more the rougher times are! It is overcoming your own pride and fear. Perhaps this is only a romantic dream…. but I believe that when love is true this is not only possible but a natural consequence and reaction.  Read more ›

Good Morning to a new week… and to all of you! Many of you watched the Super Bowl yesterday and some (like my son) took the morning off. A real fan even stays up all night to watch it!! Over here the game started at 1:30 am! For all of you who need a musical caffeine boost, I chose a song from the movie Flashdance. Did you know that Jennifer Beals did not do one single dancing scene during the whole movie? She was doubled by three dancers: Marine Jahan, Breakdancer Richard Colón, and Sharon Shapiro.

This song came to my mind when my thoughts went to my first visit to New York City when I was 15. I went there with my parents in a travel group. On the bus rides for example to Washington D.C. or to Philadelphia, I mostly listened to my walkman. This was one of the songs I recorded right before we went on that trip. Whenever I hear it or think of that song I also think of that trip! Read more ›

I planned to post this song already some days ago. But I had not thought how important the message might become regarding the recent happenings in Germany but I also think about the developments about the election of the next president in the US. Many are terrified that the worst days of human history could repeat!

Let’s never forget that we are all brothers and sisters! No matter what culture we are from, what color our skin has, what language we speak, whether we are rich or poor, or in what condition our health is. We are all God’s children and he wants us to be here or we wouldn’t be here! There is a place for everyone! Let’s clasp our hands and stand together. Not as one family, not as one country but as one world! Wouldn’t that be beautiful? Read more ›
