Sometimes the current world and its events just don’t add much to a person’s comfort or joy. In times like these, it helps if we can be transported back to a simpler time, to the days of olde… when things were slower and the heart was young.
I’ve just stumbled onto a site that has me quite excited. I found it in:
I’m still working my way through these 50 gems and am saving the ones I like the most. Then I hit on this one and my enthusiasm meter went sky high and right off the page:
Now, the link above is for the year 1962. You can go to their home page or you can just click to whatever year you want to visit, and up will come loads of wonderful little music videos from that particular year… all sorted for you.
I’ve only listened to two so far but already I am feeling a great warm nostalgia come over my entire being — “Cottonfields” and “Wanderer” — I’m going back in for more… 1962 was a good year – I was just starting high school that year, coming off a summer-long romance with a boy I’d met whose Dad had been resurfacing our street and we dated all summer… and it was also the year I met and fell in love with Jack D. – the old boyfriend I found only a couple of years ago and have been writing to ever since off and on.
Wow. Go have a look, and be transported back to that special year in your life… just to get away from all the news of the day going on right now.
(I just found “Patches” which is really taking me back…”Down by the river that flows by the coal yard…” oh my… be still my heart!)
Enjoy and cheers,
