This week I want to talk about the music plain and simple. The super powers that the music has over my entire being. I know that I am not alone in this and that's really the cool thing. It's like preaching to the choir. Lately I find myself being completely lost in the music and I'm not talking just Rock N Roll. A few blogs back my New Years Resolution was to pure and simply LIVE. To experience life. The biggest thing was to experience the music. To open up and let it touch that raw nerve. The entire reason that the songs were written was to express the emotions of the writter. Well, we you realize this and take it in it becomes your own emotion. I have found myself lately being drawn to goosebumps and even tears by songs on TV or on the radio. Last week I saw The Misfits, a horror punk band. They played a song called "Scream". I was surrounded by hardcore punk rockers and I was so choked up that I could barely sing the lyrics. Now what is this? It was a happy moment that brought me so much joy that the only way I could express myself was by getting choked up. Now that is truly the most punk rock thing I have ever felt. The music and the vibe washed over my entire body and took me to another place. The same thing happened Saturday at my stepdad's barbershop choir's Christmas party. All the chorus members stood up and sang "Go The Distance" accapella. BAAM. Goosebumps and the lump in my throat. I look over and my mom is balling. She totally gets it.
Now that I just admitted that sometimes I cry when I hear a song that really speaks to me. Granted this is just one emotion that music brings out but I can completely gaurantee that there is at least one song out there that causes everybody to tear up. Rock N Roll is based on the blues and the blues come from straight pure emotion. If it's coming from anywhere else it's all bullshit.
