    How I Decided Not To Drop Out Of Graduate School.

    Well, in part it involved traveling to Eastern Europe, Prague specifically, just before the Berlin Wall came down. But the other essential ingredient was the song 'Caribou' by the Pixies. If it hadn't been for that song, and Communist Prague, I would have quit and got a job. ...

    Music Is A Look Into The Soul..

    I believe it! Without music words would fail. There are so many emotions and feelings music gives you that words can't, honestly some songs and lyrics I don't even think a touch could make you feel the feeling stronger..I love music:)

    Sweet Harmony

    As we were driving to the gym this morning, listening to a bluegrass band on CD, they did their obligatory 4 part gospel song. Think we both got a little teary, as it was so beautiful.  A couple of my favorites are "Hush" by the Nashville Bluegrass Band, and "Slyvie" by the...

    Music moves me.... makes me wanna move and groove.. at times, it makes me sad, or angry... many songs are a bridge to my past... my memories... Certain songs bring back certain memories and makes me smile or cry.  Without music, I would be without my soul!

    Music

    I like all genres,  I can find at least one song by most (if not all) artists that I like, for a number of reasons. I have songs because it's catchy, because I like the lyrics, the vocals, the instrumental, the structure, etc. That being said, usually people are...

    I used to teach elementary school music.

    It blew my mind when, under pain of detention, even the class troublemaker sang in harmony and loved it. Class was over, and this young man who loved to disturb every lesson, was asking if he could stay and sing with the next class. I think music is essential for everyone...

    Lost In The Blues

    I really don't know how any one can say that music, especially the blues, does not reach deep inside them and awaken feelings that would normally be sleeping or sheltered from their reality. For me at least, the blues seems to reach a place that no other music can find. As Albert...

    Music- real, arranged, produced or played- is about as important to me as breathing.   Throughout my life, the only constant I can rely on is music, in it's myriad forms and styles, volumes and trends... people come and go, situations arise and fall away- but a good song...
