Music is Life (Part 2)
In my last “Music is Life” post, I mentioned that there are days when music is the only thing that can describe your feelings. Whether it’s a bad day, good day, or somewhere in between, music talks to our soul.
For me, when I need a pick-me-up, I tend to put on a Christmas song. No snickering please. But, it takes my mind to times where family is gathered, good food is consumed, and slowing down to reflect on the birth of Christ on that Oh Holy Night.
Anyhow, I do have other songs that I target my iPod towards when in need of something that only music can provide:
When I’m running.
When I’m driving. Windows down on a beautiful day.
When I’m thinking about my PaPaw.
When I think of High School memories. (parental advisory)
When I think of my beautiful boy.
When I’m reflecting on my life.
When I just need to jam.
When my good friend Rich comes to mind. (This is his band).
When I’m thinking of my beautiful wife.
So what are the songs that get you moving, get you emotional, or get your mind off your problems?
P.S. Thanks to @JamesGarvey for finding a “Thursday” song for my last post.
“Music is what life sounds like.”
You’ve had those days haven’t you? Where you just need a song that describes your current feelings or state of mind?
Maybe you are in desperate need of a vacation, or a relationship has fallen apart and you need a good breakup song, or maybe it’s Friday night and you just need a good “going out” song.
Whatever the situation, Eric Olson summed it up by saying “Music is what life sounds like.”
That’s why I really love Google’s recent “Discover Music” release. You can type in a song’s artist, title, or even just a few lyrics and it will pull up a preview of the song using LaLa.com or MySpace.
Think about it. There is a song for every emotion and every life experience (good or bad).
There’s also a song for just about every day of the week:
Thursday (I don’t know a good song about Thursday. Do you?)
What music would you use to describe your day today? Was it easy? Or was it so stressful you need help remembering your name?
