Today’s prompt was to think of three songs then free write about them. I came up with two. Two perfect songs. Both beautiful. Both worthy of life. Both true. Duke Ellington I love. I’ve been a fan of his for decades. Perhaps since I was a young girl as my father loved straight-ahead jazz and I inherited his passion for American Jazz. When I took private singing lessons I studied the Ellington songbook. My fantasy was to be singing jazz standards in a slinky dress while on top of a grand piano. Rosemary Clooney’s sexy voice and Ellington’s band is perfect.

What better flip side to Mood Indigo than Pharrell’s Happy? I feel both. I embrace both. I am a passionate woman. Here I free write within my WordPress Dashboard not sure whether or not I will share this. Most likely I will. I tend to rewrite to edit…

    Since your post seems approved by Google, I would like to thank you for the Happy Music Video. Bach and Beethoven symphonies definitely have a way of calming the brain’s neurotransmitters. But this video seems to stimulate a pleasure response, possibly in the hippocampus region, and is good for the heart and body as well.

      Hopefully, I didn’t break copyright laws in posting links to the music videos. Try not to do that. You are very knowledgeable about the effect of music on brain chemistry. Fascinating. Thank you.
