Music Monday (feel free to add your own tracks)

in Music9 months ago

The aim is simple, to banish those Monday blues with an eclectic range of music chosen by Steemit friends both old and new.

Every Monday I intend to post a music video (and a few words explaining my choice) I invite you to join me by doing same in the comments section below. As the forum (hopefully) grows my aim is that we begin to inspire our fellow Hiveians to broaden their musical horizons by listening to the music that inspires us. The only thing I ask is that (where possible) every song we listen to is played nice and loudly on headphones or speakers in order that we capture its true essence.

As more Steemians join this venture there is also going to be the possibility of being rewarded for our musical tastes via the number of upvotes each song receives. That said please never feel awkward about posting a track, a guilty pleasure or even your own musical ventures. I have an extremely wide range of musical interests but also understand that music like beauty is very much in the eye of the beholder. As such I may play my chosen song, but who am I to define what constitutes good music.

Hope everyone is well and enjoying a good start to the week. This week I thought I'd pick a track that popped into my head today when I was walking through my local town .. a stranger in a strange land. On top of that its a beautiful song that demands a decent set of headphones and 3.18 minutes of your valuable time. :D So tune in, chill out, and put your feet up. I hope you enjoy!

Hey @perceptualflaws! How are you doing this Monday? Thanks for sharing your weekly track with us again:) A nice chilled and laid back track. Bob Dylan re-incarnate?

I thought I would share @davidfar's latest song with you here. It's great song, and I thought I would give him a little more exposure;)

Thank you so much, it is your kindness man :)

It's a fantastic song, and you deserve all the credit and exposure you can get!

Hey dude .. all good here, just had my head down getting on with some new writing projects but I'll resurface soon .. ish lol Hope you've been keeping well? Glad you enjoyed my choice this week .. I've been feeling both chilled and like a stranger in a strange land so it slotted in nicely. lol

What an excellect choice this week, a fantastic song from @davidfar .. powerful and evocative words that perfectly capture the essence of this moment in time .. great work! Thank you for the music my friend .. an inspired choice from a talented artist.

Thank you so much, this track was recorded in 2018 though I felt like it can also be related to the situation we have in these days and I made its video weeks ago. thanks for the kind words.

✌️🙏 Thank you so much

Read his lips bro :-)

Hey dude .. how have you been? Sorry, I must have missed this one! Busy few days. Brilliant choice this week, one of my favourite tracks from the album .. and this is a class rendition! I paid close attention to his lips and agree with his every word. The world will be far worse off when the likes of Roger hand up their guitars. Thank you for the music my friend .. an inspired choice!!

Very busy, lack of time, I still try to contribute on here, difficult at times, and I agree with what you are saying re legends like him.

That was a nice serene track. I was watching a movie this past week and they played this song (well part of it) during the movie. I had all but forgotten about this song, I wonder how since in it's heyday they played the song to death. Of course for a couple days afterwards that's all that kept going around in my mind....lol.

What the hell....lets roll another by them

Thank you my friend .. glad you enjoyed my choice and I trust the passing week has been kind to you. Wolfman Jack .. now there is a blast from the past .. class! :) Equally, two excellent song collections .. the 70's produced some brilliant music .. that disco/jazz/rock fusion of soundscapes, brilliant! Reminds me of Funkadelic. great choices this week .. missedthem last night, but they certainly put a spring in my step this morning .. thank you for the music, a great selection. :)

I got a giggle out of that ol' Wolfman Jack intro myself.
