Music and Memories ( #AtoZChallenge )




Many things can tap into our memories and often music can evoke our pasts more so than any other stimulus...





      On my own blog Tossing It Out I frequently discuss music and memories.  For a time I even had one blog Wrote By Rote that focused on memoir and often music was a topic there as well.  Most of us enjoy music to some extent and we enjoy sharing what we like with others who might also like our favorite music.  Some blogs focus entirely on the subject of music while other bloggers regularly participate in music-themed blog events just as I do.

       My favorite music blog hop is Stephen T. McCarthy's Battle of the Bands in which participants post songs and ask readers to vote on their favorites.  Like most other participating bloggers, I post my Battles on the 1st and 15th of each month. That means another one will be coming tomorrow (Sunday April 15th).


       So, if you are a music fan, please drop by to vote on my Battle and take a look at the other Battles.  It's fun and it is educational--I've made some great musical discoveries doing Battle of the Bands.   And can you believe that I've participated in BOTB since 2013--we've been doing this thing for going on 5 years now.  I guess we really are having a good time with it!   You can too.  Want to join us?   If so, visit my next BOTB post and find out more.

     Do you ever blog about music?  Do you ever write memoir on your blog?    Are there any blog events that you've been participating in that you'd like to share with us?

    1. Marcy, if there weren't music already then someone would have to invent it out of necessity.

  8. Lee,

    Yes, I do blog about mewsic but you know that already and for those who don't I co-host every week along with some other marvelous gals the best dance party in Blogosphere with Monday's Music Moves Me. We'd love to have y'all boogie with us. ;)

    April round two of Battle of the Bands is going to tied in with Monday's post this time. So, I hope everyone stops in to cast their vote. Until then I hope you'll join me today for my newest iPad Art Sketch share for the letter 'M' (Cookie Monster)!

  9. I came over to add my URL. My post is also Music and Memories but with a little different focus. Music from our past really does bring back a lot of emotions!
