A favourite piece of music is mine.

                              

Just a short entry tonight as I wanted to share my excitement with you. Today I found a recording of one of my favourite pieces of music it is such a haunting tune I sing it with great regularity. I was in our local charity shop today and stopped to look at CD not something I do a great deal but one caught my eye it was called The Greatest Themes Vol 2. I turned it over and there it was the theme music from Robinson Crusoe. It came from a TV series our son and I watched in the early sixties it was made in French
and had been dubbed and narrated in English but it was always the music I watched it for. Tonight I have also found a web site all about the series I am sure some of you ladies or gentlemen will remember it so I will leave the address at the end of this entry. I have been so excited about this tonight I have hardly been able to contain myself something's just get to me like this. I would have bought this many years ago but I did not know the name of the music, and the CD that has made me such a happy bunny cost me £1. There are another 16 tracks ranging from Vangelis 1492 Conquest of Paradise to Mission Impossible  really think I got a great bargain. Well that's about it for now will go and make some supper then sit and watch Sisters and Brothers one of my favourites at the moment.     Love Joan.

Am very happy for you Joan. I always remember times by the music that was played then, Ive only to hear a song on the radio and I am in a reverie remembering what I was doing when it was a hit. The internet has been great for downloading old favourites going back to the late 50's. I love charity shops too, only last friday I bought a brand new skirt and top, still with labels dangling for less than a tenner. Sorry Ive not commented on your journal recently, have had a lot on my mind, but hopefully things are now back to normal.
Love,  Cathy.  xxx

What a lucky find!  I had a song running through my head all this week and was finally able to find it onlineyesterday.  I had myself wondering if it was a real song or just my mind playing tricks on me.  It ended up being real!

It's great when you find a piece of music you never thought you'd hear again isn't it? I'm glad you found it and I'm sure it'll be well played now! Hope it's not too cold up in Scotland, it's like winter down here! Jeannette xx  http://journals.aol.co.uk/jlocorriere05/Welcometomytravels
