Hey Guys!

Welcome to my very first post!

To say I am excited is indeed an understatement.


So I climbed many mountains and forded many seas –  just to pick my first post!

PS: It is really not an easy something, lol!

Well, I thought of no better topic to kick off with than to throw you back to the times long before the iPod or the Walkman.

Songs that have transcended the times and will outlive us (hopefully we don’t lose our sound)

The ones you can even introduce to your kids… yes those ones.


These songs shaped my heart for music and I’m forever hung up on them.
