It’s incredible how music can impact our daily lives. Whether you’re listening to music on the radio, playing music on your smartphone, streaming music on your computer or portable device or watching a live performance, music has become an important, integral part of our lives.
A single song can have a deep, profound impact and leave a unique impression or mark on each of us and that same song can produce a different result and leave a completely different impression or mark amongst different people.
The rhythm, beat, melody and lyrics to a song can affect us in a variety of ways. The rhythm, beat and melody can play into our mood & emotions and induce a physical response. The lyrics to a song can tell a story which we may relate to, connect with and understand and may penetrate deep into our core; taking us on an emotional journey of reflection, remembrance, and deep thought.
Our taste in music may change based on our mood and emotional state as well as the conditions that surround us. If we are feeling down, we may choose to listen to songs which complement those feelings (ex: we listen to sad songs) or we may take a completely opposite approach and choose to listen to songs that are upbeat to help boost our spirits. We may also listen to songs that complement the atmosphere we are in (ex: music that matches the occasion or music that complements the season).
Music is a companion that joins us on our daily journey through life. Music helps keep us grounded, it helps to inspire us, it helps to support us, it allows us to express ourselves, music unites us. Music serves as a platform for communication & expression, sharing of ideas, thoughts and feelings and much more. Music is truly an important part of our lives!
