"That Lovin' Feeling"
I don't really listen to music unless I'm really cleaning house, it's summer, or I'm in my car when I'm not listening to a story CD. There's something about summer and my car especially with the sixties music.
When I'm alone in my car listening to the 60's, I am at one with the road, have the beat, and feel energized. "Ooh, Baby, it's true." (Can't find the song or artist I owe this line to???)
I have so many favorite songs and favorite groups of the 60's. Creedence Clearwater Revival's rendition of "Green River" and "Proud Mary" "keep me rollin', rollin' on the river."
While I'm driving, "My Girl" by the Temptations "Gives me sunshine on a cloudy day."
"I Can't Help Myself, Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch" by the Four Tops is when I'm loving the driving.
Then there was "The Sounds of Silence" by Simon and Garfunkel when I'm "approaching streets of cobblestone."
And "Don't carry the world upon your shoulders" by listening to "Hey, Jude" by The Beatles.
These are just a few of my favorites. What is really fascinating is that this music is still played and enjoyed today by people of all ages.
These were the songs of my youth, and they do "bring back that lovin' feeling." ("You've Lost That Loving Feeling" by The Righteous Brothers)
