Need A Distraction?

When I woke up at 2:00 this morning, which is, by the way, normal for me, I made the mistake of glancing at news headlines.
I decided it might help put all the frustration and tension on hold if people could spend 20 minutes or so listening to music designed to soothe their nerves.
This medley of songs from some very legendary crooners may not be the answer … but hey, it can’t hurt.

Play button is on the left … Volume slider is on the right

A Soothing Medley
Johnnie Ray – Mills Brothers – Frank Sinatra
Nat King Cole – Brooks Benton
Billy Eckstine – Dean Martin

    What a great way to start the day ….. listening to music as I scroll through fb posts with coffee …. music is relaxing … even some I don’t remember hearing before … thanks for always thinking of others Ray … and for trying to make the world a better place. Rock the Day (and stay out of the heat).

      Thanks, Barbara.
      Putting together a medley is more work than posting music videos but it was fun doing it again. 🙂
      Stay Safe and ROCK THE DAY!

      Thanks, Donna.
      I usually go to sleep around 10:00 … 4 hours has always worked well for me, even back in the radio days when I woke up at 1:30 in the morning.
