I Believe Music Is Healing

    I listen to Sinatra for reasons.

    The arrangements and feeling to his songs make me appreciate his music more. Every time I listen to him I understand the songs he sings more because I am a lonely guy who has feelings just like Sinatra did. When I listen to Sinatra it makes me feel better because in my mind he...

    Musicals Speak To Me..

    There are a lot of people in the world that just can't stand musicals. They may seem dramatic and pointless. But to me, they are relative to life. Honestly all songs and content in musicals connect with me. It doesn't matter if I am just hearing the music. I can sense the passion...

    Mending A Broken Heart

    I'd just been through a really long, hard weekend. Everything had been so loud, so agitating.. that night, stepped into the dark room where the piano sat. The keys were barely visible, but I'd played them so many times I knew where each one was. I played, in the dark completely...

    Everytime Im Upset...

    music kind of shows me the other side in life. makes me feel better. It says exactly what needs to be said, and does a lot for me. My music tastes are really different, i love Mika as i love 80's rock and pop, and every song on its own way makes me feel good.

    Song Of My Heart

    For as long as I can remember, music has been my emotional mirror, reflecting back at me my inner most feelings, be them sad or happy. For most of the 14 months that followed my seperation from the woman I had been with for 18 years, married for 13, adopted two lovely daughters...

    My Own Little World

    All my life I have used music for soothing or comforting whatever mood I was in. Maybe something really bad was happening and music was a good way to deal with it. I've picked it up again lately. Not as much as I use "zone out" with whatever songs I was listening to at the time...

    There are songs that tell our story.

    and others that are so healing it describe how we feel. a song BIG AND RICH has a song called "Holy Water". It tells my story almost to a T. Another song by Colton Dixon called "Through all of it" describes how I feel now. Both have powerful lyrics and meaning.

    The Power Of Music

    Depending on my mood and where I am at in life is how I choose what to listen to. To me, it is the lyrics of a song that really speak to me. Heartbreak? Depression? Happiness? I take my cue from these feelings. Rather than listen to something upbeat and happy when I am sad...

    I listen to music everyday.

    I have days where I must have something classical on, some it must be reggae. I think it is something therapeutic. Essential, to me!

    Music Heals My Troubled Mind

    Music heals my troubled mind. Whenever I feel bad, I first listen to a song, a slow song or ballad, or sad song, to let it all out. Then I can let it go. After I've cried hundred handkerchiefs I listen to music that makes me feel good, which is now lately Shakira, Aerosmith and...
