The power of music
So as I’m sat here about put some more tunes on my mp4 player…a smile on my face as I remember how I used to record my favourite tunes back in the day, when I was a kid/teen.
I had a tape recorder to begin with, that had a microphone. Every Thursday evening when Top of the pops was on, I’d sit waiting patiently for my favourite songs to come on…whilst holding the Mic to the TV. Then press record-then pause when it finished…patiently waiting for the next song. What joy!
Then later on I’d be lying on my bed and press play…all excited to listen to my favourite tunes…..and the creaky door sound.. and followed by a Ssssshhhh…then a voice shouting..shut up ( usually mine )…Then another creaky door sound.
Oh the frustration of hardly hearing any of the actual song..aaarrrgh.
Bloody funny to think about it now though ha.
Then when I was about 13-14 I got a better tape player for Christmas..it was great. I loved it, it had a double tape so you could record from one tape to another and I could record straight from the radio…which I did. But again Id sit listening to the radio, patiently waiting for a song to come on that I liked…hit that record button..Then pause..Then record..Oh those were the days.
Now if some one told me then that in about 20-30 years I’d, be sat with my own laptop….errrrrr what’s a laptop? And be able to put music from it, onto a little black box thingy…called an mp4 player..that can hold hundreds and hundreds of songs…of your own choice-I would of looked at this person stupid…You what!
Oh how things change eh!
Isn’t it funny though how music can take you right back to childhood and get you reminiscing about the old(er) days.
Anyways I love music especially rock but I do love alsorts of different music, depending on how I feel at the time.
If your feeling sad…put some upbeat on and before you know it, you’ll be feeling loads better.
When your emotions feel stuck and you need help to clear them..put some music on..esp soppy ( works for me everytime ) your tears will flow and you’ll feel better.
If you have trouble meditating like I do ( mind chatter won’t shut up) then put some music on…can’t hear the mind chatter then and I find I can connect better to my inner-self.
Music has a way of taking you away from all the daily life stressors for a while..take some time out.
If you are feeling stuck or stagnant..put ya fave tunes on loud and dance, doesn’t matter whether you dance well or not..just dance.
If you enjoy a good sing…sing your heart out..again doesn’t matter if you good or not…just sing.
If you like playing a musical instrument or would like to learn..go for it.
Now how powerful is that!
Id love to hear your views..does music help you, if so how? Comment below.
