Can you imagine Phonographs in your living room today?

Sound and music recordings have beeen around for over 100 years.

In 1877, Thomas Edison recorded his voice for use as a dictation machine.

The phonograph was developed as a result of Thomas Edison’s work on two other inventions, the telegraph and the telephone.

The patent on the phonograph was issued  February  19, 1878.

In 1877, Emile Berliner produced the first flat disc recording.

In January 1896, Thomas Edson started the National phonograph company.  Prices were $20.00 for the Standard model.  Standard size cylinders were sold for 50 cents each with songs that included sentimental ballads, marches, hymns, coon songs, comic monologues, and special recordings -sound reenactments of events.

Here is a photograph of a collection of early phonographs at the Menlo park museum.

If you were born in 1890, this is what your I-pod would look like.

We visited the Menlo park museum of Thomas Alva Edison a few years ago.

In the spirit of my Italian-themed title blog, I bring to you an “Italian” Christmas song. Light-hearted and fun with a happy sounding music.I wish everyone a Blessed Christmas.

Colbie Caillat – Realize



I first heard her music playing on the radio during my travels for work, although she first became popular with her music on in 2006.

The song “Realize” is about a friend that was secretly in love with Caillat.


Colbie has a double platinum album called “Coco” and the CoCo Deluxe edition  released on October 21st.

Colbie’s “Bubbly” song  which is certifed platinum   is also posted on my blog.

 To play the song here,  Please type “Colbie” in the top right search section.

Bruce Springsteen, a note

Bruce Springsteen, How can we get tickets? Hoping to celebrate my birthday for an even year. Ticketmaster is not working for me.

Have to leave the house now. I do not have one of those I -phones or Blackberries, so do not have internet access when out and about and not allowed net access while at work, I’m a nurse.

My husband grew up in Rumson, but I am more of a fan, experienced your music firsthand as a teen in the 70’s.
You may find it interesting to hear that the first words my husband said to me when I met him in Hawaii was…..”Hello, I’m from Rumson…where
Bruce Springsteen lives”….Me “Oh really…Bruce Springsteen….I listen to his music..Born in the USA… I’m from New Jersey, too”. He also told me that you cannot see his house from the road, it sits back further on the property, so no need to drive there, it is private.

Brigadoon- The Heather On the Hill (with Italian subtitles)

Brigadoon was said by Gene Kelley during an interview to be the best dancing scene he performed and liked

Colbie Caillat lyrics, Just Take Your Time Wherever you Go…

Will you count me in?

V1: I’ve been awake for a while now
you’ve got me feelin like a child now
cause every time I see your bubbly face
I get the tinglies in a silly place

C: It starts in my toes
and I crinkle my nose
wherever it goes I always know
that you make me smile
please stay for a while now
just take your time
wherever you go

V2: The rain is fallin on my window pane
but we are hiding in a safer place
under covers stayin dry and warm
you give me feelins that I adore

C: It starts in my toes
make me crinkle my nose
where ever it goes
I always know
that you make me smile
please stay for a while now
just take your time
wherever you go

B: What am I gonna say
when you make me feel this way
I just……..mmmmmm

C: It starts in my toes
make me crinkle my nose
wherever it goes
I always know
that you make me smile
please stay for a while now
just take your time
wherever you go

V3: I’ve been asleep for a while now
You tucked me in just like a child now
Cause every time you hold me in your arms
I’m comfortable enough to feel your warmth

C: It starts in my soul
And I lose all control
When you kiss my nose
The feelin shows
Cause you make me smile
Baby just take your time now
Holdin me tight

Wherever, wherever, wherever you go
Wherever, wherever, wherever you go
Wherever you go, I’ll always know
Cause you make me smile here, just for a while
