I'm Shirley, a woman rediscovering the joy of art, music, science, family and life.  When I'm not exploring the universe, studying ancient civilizations or updating this webpage, I like to sing my favorite songs from the '50s, '60s and early '70s -- rock, jazz, classic, pop and more.

I'm from the old school - so, here are a few tunes from way back (and not so way back) to sing along with or dance to.  To listen to music, while you view other pages, right-click here and select "Open in New Window".
