ABC Wednesday

The letter this week is Y

Y is for yearning - that wistful, melancholy and sometimes pensive longing we have probably all felt at one time or another.


Here is a little musical ragtime that expresses that poignant longing.




....... a Jazz version



and a little Foxtrot



For more Y's visit here, at ABC Wednesday with thanks to Mrs. Nesbitt and her helpers.

Wonderful old music, Hildred. I think I liked the ragtime pianist best.
"Yearning" is perfect for the letter Y.

Yearning is a great idea for the letter Y and you covered it very creatively in this post. Happy New Year.

Thank you for the treat! Those were the days, weren't they?! Happy New Year, Hildred and Charles! I hope to see you a lot in this year! Your blogposts are always entertaining and very interesting.

Thanks for all the music this morning. Love that vintage poster.

That was a very nice take on the letter Y! My personal favourite must be the first video - perhaps since the pianist with that name MUST be of Norwegian ancestry? Just Google Skjelbred (or the version Skjelbreid) and you will see that some are of Olympic proportions ...
