Sometimes everything has to be enscribed across the heavens so you can find the one line already written inside you. Sometimes it takes a great sky to find that small, bright, and indescribable wedge of freedom in your own heart. David Whyte

Teenage Playlist Fifties Style

on April 3, 2020

All the Things You Are, You’ll Never Walk Alone, Grand March from Aida, Stranger in Paradise, Some Enchanted Evening…you get the idea. I loved Broadway Musicals, Operas and Hit Parade Tunes. My son recently added to my repertoire with tapes he created for me of the music of Chet Baker, Ella Fitzgerald, Dinah Washington, Duke Ellington and Harold Arlen. You see, once upon a time we vintage-aged folk were the original golden oldies.

    Thanks, Dale. And I like all sorts of things that came along afterward. I just can’t remember their names.

  3. I have listened to Ella and Duke for years. Chet Baker I found via youtube, and Dinah Washington when her name was evoked by the late Amy Winehouse.

      Thanks, Resa. I’m happy to hear that you like those songs,too. I thought maybe I am out of date.

        I like a lot of music and music genres going back to… the 1400’s. I even like some Rap music. I don’t think music goes out of date. I think, as art, it endures!

        Yes, art is forever. I like some of today’s music. Like hip hop. It is like a mixture of poetry and a bit of jitterbug. I also like Rap – again the meter.
