Musical Therapy🎼

Hailing from the home of Motown, (Detroit) music has always marked the amazing eras in my life. Growing up in the 60’s my musical tastes range from the rocking British Invasion (The Beatles, Rolling Stones, and countless others) to the musical sophistication of the artists from Motown. (The Temptations, The Supremes, Stevie Wonder, and many more)

My battle with colon and breast cancer has definitely been a crucial era in my life and so music played an important role in my radiation and chemo treatments. During radiation treatment music was always playing. I had my choice of stations and I picked the 70’s to bring back the joy and memories of that decade. (high school, college, marriage) I had so much fun singing along and remembering all the lyrics, it made the time fly. My chemo days in the infusion suite continued the trend. I found myself designing musical themed treatments such as “Rock Out” day, “Broadway” day and without a doubt, “Motown” day. 

These musical moments soothed my soul and brought joy to my spirit so I thought I’d share some of my favorites with you.

Growing up I swore they wrote this song for me! 😊

My girlfriends and I loved to sing this. I was always Diana! 🎤

The Beatles – “Here Comes the Sun” always makes me happy and joyous! 🌞

  1. I am sorry you are in a battle, but I think you’ve got your music on straight! I grew up in southern Ontario, listening to the Big8 (CKLW) which played Detroit (and fed Detroit). Your songs, are my songs too. Take care.


    • Yes! I absolutely remember CKLW. Listened to it all the time. Visiting Ontario growing up always felt like just going over to an adjacent neighborhood. Thanks for your comment neighbor and reminding me of those wonderful days listening to the radio and CKLW. I’m doing well and will keep pushing forward! Best, DonnaMarie
