Thank you for the music

As you know, almost all of my recent posts used musical videos especially from Youtube. And so I like to dedicate this article especially to Youtube for the permission to let me share your videos on my blog. Thank you very much for your support.

Talk about the singers or groups who sing the songs, Blondie and The Rolling Stones seem to be appear more frequently  than the other groups or singers. Yes of course, they are my favourites among my other favourites. Blondie with their sexy and blonde vocalist Deborah Harry. The Rolling Stones as one of the rock pioneer supergroup beside Led Zeppelin,  Deep Purple and Grand Funk.

Classic and Blues are not exist yet in my blog. Maybe next time I can use it.  Without music, I can imagine that my postings  may be boring and become not interesting. Maybe you have an idea or want some requests about any certain songs that you want me to make it as a posting ?

In fact, I have a plan to expand my blog with adding menu that contains music. With music as it’s nucleus. Apart from the issue of crossdressing and belief.  So if I have some articles that relates to  music, but it doesn’t relate to any other categories, I can put it into musical categories. What do you think and your suggestions ?

I wanna quote some parts of lyrics of that song above “Thank you for the music”. Because I like that parts.

I’m nothing special, in fact I’m a bit of a bore
When I tell a joke, you’ve probably heard it before
But I have a talent, a wonderful thing
cause everyone listens when I start to sing
I’m so grateful and proud
All I want is to sing it out loud

So I say
Thank you for the music, the songs I’m singing
Thanks for all the joy they’re bringing
Who can live without it, I ask in all honesty
What would life be?
Without a song or a dance what are we?
So I say thank you for the music
For giving it to me
