We all have unique soundtracks to our lives.
Some songs free your spirit.
Some songs let you surrender to the rhythm.
And sometimes you might need a playlist that will just let your mind chillax.
It is what you make of it.
It calms or raises your passions.
It transports you back to a time or a place. With an old friend.
It recalls memories.
I think about this today because R.E.M. announced that they are calling it quits as a band. Last night Jamey played some hits and I had a dance party. I thought about where I was and who I was with and how much I loved each song. They will be missed but not forgotten. Shiny Happy People!
“Music was my refuge. I could crawl into the space between the notes and curl my back to loneliness.”
“Without music, life would be a mistake.”
~ Friedrich Nietzsche
