DP Daily Prompts: Musical Marker

pad2014-s.png (308×60)

We all have songs that remind us of specific periods and events in our lives. Twenty years from now, which song will remind you of the summer of 2014.

Life is precious and whether we’re having a good time or completely opposite, we try to hold on to it hoping tomorrow the sun will shine, with these thoughts in mind I feel I cannot count on twenty years later. It does not make me a pessimist when I say that but a realist.

I will attempt to write about the life I had as a young kid. I was very fond of songs,poetry, and music. I sat in the corner of my house each day and sang the songs I learned in school.

One of the songs I loved was:

Oh give me a home where the buffaloes roam and the deer and the antelopes play

Where never is heard a discouraging word and the sky is not cloudy all day

a home on the range where the deer and the antelopes play!

The modern songs cannot match this beautiful song and its lyrics are so meaningful.

From where I am now I’d rather appreciate the songs of long ago.I leave you with this song which is my favorite :

My mind to me a kingdom is such perfect joy therein I find.

  1. There are songs of old with purpose and peace. I love your message you share Ranu. Please forgive me not stopping by. My computer (x2) has been acting up then I broke my phone that gave me a little on-line access 😦
    I think I am too dependent on things with a screen.

  2. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for this post. I very much like the song you picked, “Home on the Range.” It does indeed convey such a nice beauty.

    All good wishes,


  3. A voice that haunts my earliest childhood as far as my memory can go, and sometimes beyond, is the Bengali singer Runa Laila – her songs, which were extremely popular at that time, are the “markers” for me which define those years in my personal memory.
