My music-taste varies quite a bit. I can listen to hip hop, alternative, indie rock, opera and then switch straight over to deep house or electro. It is really what my mood wants to hear. The last couple of weeks, I have actually been going through music-memory-lane. Old songs that I forgot about were playing through my headphones and suddenly I got goose-bumps. It was a song from 2Pac that I listened to when I was about 17 years-old (if you want to hear the songs go here). Again, I realized that music can have so much power. The song was followed by a song called “Nothing Left” made by a dear friend that is an extremely talented singer/songwriter, James Lange. Besides the fact that his music comes straight from the heart, he is one of those pure and genuine souls that you know you will not meet very often in your life. . His music pierces through your eardrum and can just overwhelm you.
The power of good music keeps surprising me. It can make a cloudy day brighter and this is my remedy for when I am not feeling it. or more importantly make awesome days even better (as I got heaps more awesome days then not-feeling-it days). I pick up my music and select the songs in a playlist that will give me that extra boost. It will change or extend my mood in a way that nothing else will.
