“These cloudy days make you wanna cry.  It breaks your heart when someone leaves and you don’t know why.” –Glenn Frey

Dear Song List:

The world lost Glenn Frey recently.  He was an inimitable songwriter, singer, musician and co-founder of the equally inimitable soft rock pop group The Eagles.  I don’t know about you, but a fair portion of the soundtrack of my life consisted of the music of The Eagles and of their lilting songs when members of the group went solo.  This was definitely true for Glenn Frey; so I’ve included a few of his solo hits here as my top favorite songs created by his artist’s mind and soul.

This year has not gotten off to a good start, in my humble opinion.  Beautiful music, and the artists who create beautiful music, very much help define the canvass of our lives and become part of those permanent memories we take with us through life.  Standing in a supermarket or at a car wash, a Glenn Frey or Don Henley or Eagles song comes on…and you are immediately teleported back to a happy time in your life.  A time that is unforgettable and irreplaceable.  Thus the power of beautiful music is omnipotent and becomes so much of who we are and what we feel and think.  I hope we sustain no more losses like David Bowie and Glenn Frey this year.  I want 2016 to be filled with only happy memories and beautiful music.  I don’t believe I am alone in these hopes.  Yes?
