Mellow Wednesday

Sometimes you just have to slow it down. Well, maybe you don’t but I do because there is so much going on in the world, things can get out of hand if you don’t take the time for some … mellow.

And so today, I am going back to an era of slow ballads and love songs. There are five songs from the 50s, four from the 60s, and a Bill Withers gem from 1971.

It doesn’t matter how young (or old) you are. These songs are all timeless classics. Put your hectic life on hold for a few moments.

Memories … That’s What We’re All About

    Loved hearing all this mellow music today, I think also very fitting for all the people who are in line with being attacked by Ian. Most of the music is so soothing! I just loved hearing the platters, always a favorite of mine, and Roy Orbison another favorite. Have always loved The Beach Boys, and Jim reeves. I think my favorite song today was Johnny Mathis! I’ve always loved his music, and chances are is the perfect song! Thanks Ray this was a hit with me all day long. You’re the best! 🥰

      I appreciate the nice words. I know whenever I play that Mathis song, Chances Are it will be embraced. 🙂
      I am keeping all of the people in Florida close to my heart this day ❤️

    what a great laid back medley and yes we all need music like this every once in a while to help ground us! Toss up on my favorite but I have not heard Jim Reeves in ages – brings back memories of hearing this when I was young!! Also love Ain’t no sunshine … can’t go wrong with any of these amazing songs!
    Thanks again Ray aka Mr DJ Man!!
    Have a wonderful day!

      Thank you, Penny 🥰
      I think it’s good to hit “pause” and slow it down every once in a while. With the disaster happening in Florida today, this was one of those “pause” days.
      I am very, very glad you enjoyed it.

    A little calm before the storm has been much appreciated Ray. Hoping all your listeners on Florida’s Gulf Coast are safe.

      Thank you, Marty. All things considered, today seemed like the right day to play it mellow.
      Stay safe, my friend.
