Thinking back to your early life, what music do you remember with affection?
I must have been born under a lucky star, for I was born in the mid 1950’s, and therefore grew up listening to some of the greatest, most enduring modern music.
Through the magic of the internet, I’ve just watched and listened to some of my all-time favourites. ‘Love is in the Air’, ‘The Carnival is Over’, ‘Pretty Woman’, ‘There’s a Kind of Hush’, ‘A World of Our Own’ to name just a few.
My husband Ronald Sharp the Sydney Opera House Organ builder tells me he’s only lately discovered some of these tunes, and loves them too. As a devotee of classical music, Ron’s glowing endorsement of these masterpieces of post 1950 reinforces my elevated opinion.
Our joy in this spills over to following an excellent, local band which performs these in an inspiring manner. Who can resist dancing, either on the floor or in spirit?
Can one overestimate the power and magic of music?
