Too much? Too early? Too…enthusiastic for Monday?
I believe “Happy Monday” may be an oxymoron, don’t you think?
Anyway, if it’s Monday, and it’s Allison’s Written Words, then it is Music Monday!
I know Mondays should be about starting off with something happy and bouncy, but this song popped into my head. And not only is it beautiful, it is also amazing. It’s also high energy and good for a Monday morning…if you’re a Ballet dancer (I used to be!!!).
Today’s selection for Music Monday is from the 1988 David Foster album The Symphony Sessions. This album is a collection of instrumental music, all of it contemporary, all of it David Foster amazing. I’ve written about some of his music, and the man is nothing less than brilliant with his craft…making music people love to hear.

I first heard today’s song on I Heart Radio in 2012, and made a mental note to check out the rest of the album it came from. I fell in love immediately with it, and knew my mom would too, so I gave it to her for Christmas that year. It was one of those “ulterior motive” gifts – if she didn’t like it, then I could have it.
She loved it. We listened to it in her car often (while her car still had a CD player). I used to listen to this while I was working on the monthly attendance reports at work.
The first track on the album was always my Monday morning go-to around that time, and while it isn’t the first song I listen to at work everyday, it is still quite an important song in my musical life.
I proudly present the first track from The Symphony Sessions, “Piano Concerto in G”!
And I didn’t know this, but apparently there is a music video for this song!
Happy Monday! 🙂
