Music is Equal To Life

Music has always been my life. My day starts with music: I jump out of  the bed and turn on my CD Player before I brush my teeth in the morning. When I write and think, I listen to the music to be inspired and keep going for the day’s chores. When I’m taking a shower, I will crank the stereo up and listen to my favorite band. And before I go to sleep, I’ll grab my iPod and listen to my favorite lullaby songs. I honestly don’t know what life would be like without music, I don’t think I ever really wanted to know.

Instead of writing some stuff about my life, I paused for a little bit today and decided that I would just ask anyone and everyone to share their favorite music memory or song when you read this post of mine. I’m not doing this to push for numbers or anything, I just really want to see what kind of music people love to listen to or cherish it in their lives. Please feel free to post whatever it may be that you really, really want. It’s either an artist, an event, a memory, or whatever music related experience you hold near and dear to your heart. I will give you one of my favorite memories just to be fair.

One day, about eight or nine years ago, I had been sick for a week because of fever and cold with an unbearable headache when I was left alone in our home with no one else since my parents needed to go to work. But when I saw the CD placed on the center table that my mother bought, I grabbed it and went back to my bedroom and listened to it. The CD was from Josh Groban’s self-titled album. The song that help me recovered and feel at ease while waiting for my parents to come home was the Vincent (Starry, Starry Night). It really help me recovered so fast than usual. (Thanks to the beautiful melody of music, amazing lyrics of the song and angelic voice of Josh!) From that day, I memorized the lyric of the song and always sing it in my head or listen to it every time I got sick. It is indeed my most effective cure! It was not a medicine that provided by a doctor or anybody, it was the power of music that helped me embrace  and appreciate life and keep moving forward. Your turn! 🙂 So what’s your favorite music or song and why? See you around! Mack

  1. One of the best things about music is its wide ranging nature … that is in terms of styles/genres/etc …. I consider myself fortunate to enjoy many styles, and enjoy hearing new music. For instance, last week we had a contractor in our home who listened to a particular station …. one that I knew, but hadn’t listened to …. but wow … wonderful! Obviously the contractor and I talked about music.

  2. That’s a nice share, aFrankAngle! You’re right and I agree that music has a wide ranging nature. Good for you that you enjoy many styles of music…it can also connect you to people more closely and can build friendship to anybody. 🙂
