Usually when I am going through a rough spell in my life, I turn to Music for a bit of solace. It helps me calm down, clear my head and stay away from making irrational decisions. Interestingly, when I’m extremely happy and excited about something, music is still my go-to-place for celebration and triumph. It is therefore safe to say that Music can be and will be there for me whenever I need company. It may not give the physical relief or conversational company that one may need at such a time but it sure does offer perfect remedy.
Over the years I have been carrying on with music, there are interesting things I have learnt about this beautiful drug. Often times it takes a hold on us a lot more than we care to admit and it makes us do things we would otherwise not do in our ordinary minds. I have been able to experience a life full of ups and downs and as I go ahead to share my experience about music, I can safely say that every person has been crazy about music, if not for long then at least for a little while.
And of course when my favorite song plays, who cares how terrible my voice sounds? And if they care, what business do they have being near me? Go away! I shall sing myself hoarse if I have to – that is what music does to me. The strange thing about music is it gives you an elevated level of confidence especially when you nail the lyrics! Ideas pop up in one’s mind – what if I am supposed to be a musician? Now that is where the problem is. You see, many people get these terrible ideas that they can be musicians just because they have correctly nailed the lyrics to a certain Bruno Mars song or Rihanna song. And then what do we have? Hilarious YouTube videos entitled ‘Music Talent Search Fails’. The truth is – music gives you extreme confidence. Music gives memory. Music is healthy. All music…your choice!
I may not be able to sing for I have a sharp voice; I may not be able to write music for I lack the talent, but I am certainly going to devour as much music as I can. And because almost everybody loves music so much, here are three different quotes about music:
1. “One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.” ― Bob Marley
2. “Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and that which cannot remain silent” ― Victor Hugo
3. “Without music, life would be a mistake.” ― Friedrich Nietzsche, Twilight of the Idols, Or, How to Philosophize With the Hammer
