Welcome to Out of this World Music Blog


This is a participation between four bloggers: One from Holland , one from Poland, one from the USA,  and another blogger from Canada that met in cyberspace and realized they had much in common. The idea is to feature a few songs and music on a daily basis and we are looking for suggestions. Eventually we would like to have the whole page filled with categories that include all nations on the planet.
