Here’s what Deborah Hord says about eFolkMusic:

I just want to say that I am crazy about eFolkMusic. I think it’s an incredible oasis for those who want to hear more music than what is available on commercial radio. There is some great music on the air, but there is even more music available here.

.

There are so many styles of ‘folk’ music, I know you will find mp3s you want to download. You’ll even find some of your favorite musicians in this space.

.

From personal experience, I’d like to say you can’t go wrong with a membership to eFolkMusic. For less than the price of two cds at current prices, you can have access to about 2,000 mp3 downloads (FREE ‘Member’ Downloads). What a deal!!!

.

eFolkMusic has been a leader in offering mp3 downloads for the past seven years. eFolkMusic offered mp3 downloads from a variety of artists long before other sites offered digital downloads.

.

eFolkMusic is a nonprofit organization and depends on your support for its survival. In the past year, visitors downloaded 25,000 FREE mp3 DOWNLOADS.

.

Now you have an opportunity to support eFolkMusic. Now is the time to do your part to help keep folk music alive. Membership in eFolkMusic begins at $30. Membership in eFolkMusic gives you access to about 2,000 mp3s. Do the math! It’s a great opportunity! 🙂

.

As a member, every mp3 marked ‘member download’ is a FREE mp3 DOWNLOAD for you. This translates to only pennies per song.

.

You won’t find a better value than eFolkMusic. Come on over and explore the music, listen to the previews and do your part to help keep folk music alive!

****

I posted several songs recently and promised them as free mp3s on eFolkMusic. A few hours ago, I realized they were not listed as free. If you looked for them and did not find them, please look again. They’re posted now: “Let Go” from the “Hungry When I Wake” digital album, “You’re Not the Only One Who Hurts” from the “Lean In For A Kiss” digital album and “Teddy Bear” from the “Weird Duck” digital album. The rest of the songs on those albums are available either as member downloads or mp3s for sale.

We always heard, “An apple a day keeps the doctor away.” Now a study suggests that eating a piece of low-calorie fruit immediately before a meal reduces calorie intake during the meal.

I got my flu shot last week. I wash my hands frequently, and I try to remember to keep my hands away from my mouth, nose and eyes. I’m trying to eat a healthy diet and get enough sleep (two things that are not always accomplished).

.

How about you?

UPDATE OCTOBER 23, 2007

Christophe sent a link to a page that has links to songs of Mauritius. I’ve copied a photo from that page. Click the picture of the women dancing, and look for song titles on the right side of the page.

Some one sent this link (in a comment on a previous post). I don’t understand the lyrics on the non-English songs, but I like the sound of this music. Commenter Christophe says this music is not from Mauritius. If you know what country it’s from, please tell!

This post was originally at the end of the Kids – Paint – Music – Teddy Bear post, but I kept finding links to the story and wanted to include them all. That’s okay. I like it that my little Teddy Bear song now has a post all its own.

If you’re reading this post, it’s probably because you have much-loved children in your life. If so, check out the song Teddy Bear by Deborah Hord on eFolkMusic.

.

I wrote “Teddy Bear” in the early 1980’s. I am happy to share it with you and your family. You can download ‘Teddy Bear’ free from my eFolkMusic page. Your little ones will love it. You can sing it with them, too. The words and chords are below.

Teddy Bear

c.2003 Deborah L. Hord

v1. A D E A

Teddy Bear, I don’t care what they say about me.
You’re my friend ‘till the end. There’s no need to doubt me.
If you think I would leave just because they tease me,
You should know I won’t go. I know that you need me.

Chorus – D A E A

You have been my good friend. I have loved you dearly.
As I play every day, I will keep you near me.

v2.

Teddy Bear, everywhere I will take you with me.
Who can know where we’ll go, but we will be happy.
You’re my friend, ‘till the end. I will always love you.
When I play every day, I am thinking of you.

Chorus –

You have been my good friend. I have loved you dearly.
As I play every day, I will keep you near me.

v1.

Teddy Bear, I don’t care what they say about me.
You’re my friend ‘till the end. There’s no need to doubt me.
