Music In My Soul

Music washes away from the soul of everyday life {Berthold Auerbach)

I have always been a lover of music. Granted my tastes change every so often, but it well and truly is what feeds my soul sometimes. I think what ever the circumstances have been, music for some reason, has always been around.

At this moment I am truly in love with rock. Not the screaming-you-cant-hear-a-word rock but the powerful-vocals-makes-you-wanna-go-wild rock. I think in essence I have always been a “rock chic” (geez! do people still use that word?). And I like it.
For every moment, good or bad, in your life, there will be a rock song to suit it. It’s the way it works. See? Powerful stuff indeed.

I’m of the opinion that music is the food for life. (I think I should take my own opinion and cheer myself up!). It has the ability to lift ones’ spirit. Throughout the years I have constantly heard people say “wow, this song sounds like the story of my life” or “this song totally explains what I am going through” or “this song means so much to me”. Now I don’t think the guys/gals who right the lyrics have the intention of speaking, in a way, to one person. Majority of them write from the heart and about what they are feeling at that moment or a particular event in their lives. To many that song might not mean the same thing to us as to them. But we feel the spirit of that song regardless.

Why, you may ask, am I babbling about this? Well,
1. I wanted to.
2. I think we all need a little music in our lives.

Without music life would be a mistake. {Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche}

Have you ever wondered why music soothes the savage beast? It’s because it’s what the beast wanted to hear!! Think about it. If you are angry, sad, emotionally drained, tired etc. and you listen to that one particular song, does it not instantly start to make you smile? Its because its what you want to hear at that point in time. No moaning kids, no nagging from people, no horrible news stories on TV etc. Just you, peace and your favourite song.

Take a music bath once or twice a week for a few seasons. You will find it is to the soul what a water bath is to the body. {Oliver Wendell Holmes}

So thank your (even though they probably wont see this) to all my favourite bands/musicians out there. You make life bearable at the worst and strangest of times. Thank you for being my smile factor for the day even if I’m in a good mood to begin with.
