Even with other devices, with so many links here, it is impossible to keep track of those which decay or include unwanted adverts.

There is a page top link and a song key link at intervals. Using your chosen search method, there are markers according to the type of song or theme within it.

Although carers have their own set of pages here, there's every reason for using this series.  Some of them will have carees who come into scope.  More starting at No. 1 here

Those who prefer to choose the entertainment mode (more)  of my interaction could make a choice from this page.  I would bring an Ipad with an amplifier and play a selection. There is another page with more songs.   In most cases, the history of the song can be given.  See more at top left under the heading "Traditional songs" here.


The how and why are important.  Consider "Long-term memories are usually stronger than memories of recent events." on the right here
