With a few exceptions, my collection is mostly rock, pop, folk, & blues (vocal) songs. Including classical instrumental music would have overwhelmed the list with pieces that (except for the titles) seemed to have little to do with visual art. I realize that some of you may think that description also applies to some of these songs, and you may be right. But it’s my list, and while I’m starting to regret Kenny Rogers’ “If I Were a Painting,” you won’t be able to talk me out of Billie Holiday’s “I’m Painting the Town Red.” (Some of these tracks are available on my iTunes page, HERE.)

Music is a way of mesmerizing the hearts of the people. Now, a therapy called “Music Therapy” is being used in many hospitals to cure the sickness of the patients. They will put some silent and lovely background music and give treatment. So that, the patients will feel so light and comfortable. But, some people use this music as a gaining factor and start taking classes and earn money from them. We can see the details about the musical instruments by clicking the software called Fintech LTD.
