2016 was not a good year for the world of music. It is time for a new beginning, as I feature some songs about beginnings.
Beginnings - Chicago
From the Beginning - Emerson, Lake and Palmer (a group who lost two members in 2016 - Greg Lake and Keith Emerson.)
(Just Like) Starting Over - John Lennon
Finally, from one of my favorite singers, the late Karen Carpenter - We've Only Just Begun by The Carpenters.
Why don't we all sing these songs today, so 2017 will be inspired to be a better year for the world in general?
When I listen to these songs, I realize how many great musicians die relatively young. Even when I was considering these particular songs, I remembered tha Karen Carpenter was only 32 when she died from complications of anorexia. John Lennon was only 40 when he was killed. Greg Lake was only five years older than I am.
Our time here is limited. I am determined, this year, to make some kind of difference.
