Music Monday: What Music Means…to Me

I don’t know if I have ever heard anyone say the phrase: “I don’t like music.” You are more than likely to hear someone say, “That Ferrari belongs to the mime.

I usually have music playing. Sometimes, when if I hear a new song, I can picture myself in a past experience. It is as if the song was written for me for that event.

Music makes me cry, sometimes. I tried to record a song that I wrote, but I couldn’t get through it without stopping to wipe the tears or catch my breath. There are songs that I hear that still bring a tear to my eye.

Music makes me smile, often. More often than not. Music moves me. I don’t know what I would do without music. Be very sad, I suppose, unless I never knew about music in the first place, but who would want to live in a world like that?

And BTW, can somebody move that Ferrari? It’s blocking my Pinto.

  1. I love all kinds of music, and when I really like a song, I sing it! There are so many songs that move me to dance and cry. I think the two songs I can never sing without crying is Dan Fogelberg’s Leader of the Band and Angel by Sarah McLachlan.
