How to Relax and Become Mellow......

Stephen Foster (1826-1864) is known as "The Father of American Music".  He wrote many beautiful songs that have maintained their popularity even to today.

I discovered the perfect way to become calm and mellow---just listen to two wonderful performers sing his songs. 

Marilyn Horne (b 1934) is an American opera singer.  Here, she sings "Beautiful Dreamer".  Lean back, turn down the lights, close your eyes and be swept away in peace.

Deanna Durbin (b 1921) is an American singer/actress.  Here, she performs "Old Folks at Home" from an old motion picture.


  1. His music is lovely. Bob and I got to visit his home years ago. Years ago this music was played far more frequently. I guess it just doesn't fit with strobe lights :-). Have a great day. Blessings...Mary

  2. Loved his music Clint,by the way there is an award at my blog called Friends For The Journey.


  3. I really enjoyed hearing Marilyn Horne and Deanna Durbin sing! Two fantastic singers, I am just happy you were able to find them online. I miss the old days of songs and singing like this.

  4. This music is just to sit down, relax and listen.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Have a great start in the new week
