And. Here is some Sunny Music to listen to:
EL Ultimo Trago 3.47.
Oh Yes!! I like that nice Cheerful Music; It sets the mood for This Rays Chat. Although I haven’t a Clue What the guy is singing about.
And next I have chosen a song that you can sing along to!!
Oh this is Memory Lane stuff:
Red River Valley – Lyrics – Lynn Anderson 4.20
And whilst that you are in a good mood:
Let us remember the good old days of Folk. The 60’s/70’sWere when Folk really took off!!!
Here is one of the GREAT OLD SONGS.
This was the KINGSTON TRIO: At their BEST,
And they really were One of the Most Famous Groups in the 70’s .
Kingston Trio Chilly Winds 4.04
Don’t bother with the rest of the Chat – it does go on a bit.
AND WHY are We talking about Chilly Winds?
– When It’s the SUN We all need:
So Lets think of that Exotic Holiday You always Wanted, BUT Never Had.
Maybe to some Exotic Island and hear Music like this:
Leo Rojas – Der einsame Herte Oh(Video Clip) 3.57
Oh what a fabulous Artist Leo is on those pipes –
There are lots more of him on You Tube, if you would like more.
And: Maybe you have wished that you could Escape to some exciting place; and have music like this played: Well You can dream.

Two come to mind: Unfortunately both are no

Well that has been a lot of Ladies singing for Us:
