There’s something about music which soothes the soul. I find myself going days at a time without listening to a tune. The moment I press play, I’m pondering how I had ever made it through without hearing a violin or harmonica.
I only had a Lynard Skynard cd in The Van when I left Illinois. I traveled 1200 miles & must have listened to that cd close to 25 times from beginning to end. I could relate so well to every tune.
Hell, Tuesday’s Gone had me in tears. If you were driving down I-55 in October, you probably saw me as a hot mess. That CD really kept me going, every mile. I needed a distraction, something to keep me from constantly looking in the rear view mirror.
Music brings us together & that is a beautiful thing. I went to a few music festivals over the summer & was taken back by the whole scene. Tens of thousands of people gathering to share a common love. I had no idea this world had existed, how had I gone this long without ever coming to one of these?
I refuse to listen to the radio anymore, the same songs over and over again. How do people listen to this shit? Sure, we all have our guilty music pleasure, but there is a fine line between music and complete crap.
Music is all around us, there is no avoiding it. Why not embrace everything it has to offer with a few good jams? So, I ask you today, what’s your favorite tune?
