Advice Songs From 1890s – 1950s

Advice4Advice Songs From 1890s to the  1950s

When I was just a little girl
I asked my mother
What will I be?
Will I be pretty?
Will I be rich?
Here’s what she said to me…
– Doris Day, Que Sera Sera

Advice may be given… advice may be taken.
Your advice can be someone else’s experience.
Advice may even be pointing a little blame.

The problem with advice is that we often don’t take it, especially
if it means doing or admitting something that we’d rather
not. Sometimes advice brings up an option you didn’t think
of before, or gives you another question without an answer.

ADVICE
Definition: an opinion or recommendation offered as a guide
to action, conduct. Advice, reflective thought and a pause
in instinctive reactions can help people make the right decisions.

Giving and accepting advice is one part of life that helps
us through the trials and tribulations we are faced with.
