Ten on Tuesday | Play It Again.

...yikes, it's nearly 7pm already - I know where the day went (knitting, a walk, Costco, lunch with Katie, more knitting, a nap - last night was a late one!, another walk, laundry and dishes), but boy did it fly by...like all the days seem to lately. Remember that scary numbers post from a few weeks back? yeah, it will be 2015 in just over six weeks. I wish I could slow the clock (and not only to give me more time to knit the Christmas gifts!).

And now you're probably wondering how that little tangent relates to today's topic. Carole's asked us to list ten musicians we'd like to bring back (from the dead). A few of the guys on my list died way too young. I'm not even sure they realized how quickly their time here would end. I hope they'd agree with me that even just a few more months could be time well-spent. Maybe they wouldn't make any new music, but knowing these guys, I think they would. And that would be such a gift.

The first names that popped into my head when I read the prompt were classical composers. I ended up limiting them to just four names. These are my favorites. I definitely think they could make it in the 21st century...and have fun with it!

1. Mozart

2. Bach

3. Vivaldi

4. Beethoven (I wonder if modern medicine could help him hear...and then I wonder if that would spoil his genious? and if he'd even like it?!)

then the John's

5. Johnny Cash

6. John Denver

7. John Lennon

and the rest

8. Elvis (from the 1960's)

9. Frank Sinatra (ditto)

10. Marvin Gaye (even after 31 years, this is still my very favorite date night music - for the next 31 years, it would be nice to have a few new songs!)

And now...back to knitting. I did get some great Charlie photos yesterday and I'll be sharing them soon, but if you don't want to wait that long, check out Katie's post (here).

  1. Those classical guys were my first thoughts also! And thank you for those scary numbers again. I've been deluding myself that Christmas was six or eight weeks away even though I know that's not true. Time to turn on the classical music, look at some Charlie photos, and get knitting!

  2. Your list is awesome. There are so many wonderful musicians it's hard to pick just 10. My list of 20 would have Frank, Bach, Johnny Cash, Marvin Gaye and Mozart! I had to check out Charlie's cute face. Look at him laugh!

  3. I really had a hard time keeping my list to Just 10. So many amazing (dead!) musicians out there. . .

  4. Wonderful list, some are the same as mine. I really liked reading these today.

  5. I think the classic composers would love modern technology in the music industry-especially Beethoven.

  6. I really need to up my classical game. And I've loved 2014 Mary...I'd like it to stay a bit longer also!

  7. That sure turned out to be a fun topic!


Thanks for the feedback!
