FWER Mixed Tape – music to inspire

Sometimes, when I’m paddling along in my kayak and listening to my iPod (okay, you’re right, that isn’t from my kayak – it’s actually from a boat we were on in the Galapagos Islands last November) I think about the kind of music I’d want to put onto what we used to call – actually some of us still call – a “mixed tape”.  What are the songs that would inspire me to live my retired life to its fullest and best?

For instance,  “Beautiful” by Carol King  … you’ve got to get up every morning with a smile on your face and show the world all the love in your heart …) or Cat Steven’s “On The Road To Find Out … Sometimes you have to moan because nothing seems to suit you, but nonetheless you know .. there’s so much left to know and I’m on the road to find out…).

I think I’ll keep adding to this list; maybe even make the tape one day.


  1. What would you add to this mixed tape?
  2. What songs would you like to hear when you wake up in the morning?

  1. I would add Jane Olivor’s The Big Parade. In fact, Sylvia, you introduced me to Jane Olivor oh so many years ago.
