Dynamics of Music #70

Who among us doesn’t have a similar story about a song that touched us?

 

“There’s something about music that can fill us with emotion, from joy to sadness.”

“Where words leave off, music begins.”
― Heinrich Heine

For me, music has always been about an escape.  Music played a HUGE part in growing up.  If my mother didn’t have music playing in the house, my father did.  I learned early on that music had a feeling of many different emotions.

Mom enjoyed country, anything from the ‘oldies’ to the most current.  Whereas dad appreciated songs of all genre, but especially pop and rock’n-roll.  If there was Helen Reddy or the Carpenters chiming on upstairs, I knew without a doubt there would be something playing from dad’s radio tuned to the weekly American Top 40 with Casey Kasem downstairs.  

Ah, music,” he said, wiping his eyes. “A magic beyond all we do here!”
― J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone

When I felt alone…music spoke to me.
When I felt happy…music would dance with me.
When I felt anxious and scared…music helped me feel safe and kept. ❤

“Music . . . can name the unnameable and communicate the unknowable.”
― Leonard Bernstein

“Music impacts us in ways that other sounds don’t, and for years now, scientists have been wondering why. Now they are finally beginning to find some answers. Using fMRI technology, they’re discovering why music can inspire such strong feelings and bind us so tightly to other people.”

“Finding safety in insanity.”

 

“Everything in the universe has a rhythm, everything dances. ”
― Maya Angelou

Vanilla Sky


“The chef prepares a special menu

For your delight, oh my.
Tonight you fly, so high up
In the Vanilla Sky

Your life is fine

It’s sweet and sour
Unbearable great
You’ve got to learn
Every hour, you must appreciate.
This is your time,
This is your day.
You’ve got it all.
Don’t blow it away.
The chef prepares a special menu
For your delight, oh my.
Tonight you fly, so high up
In the Vanilla Sky.
Melted tea leaves,
Cast your fortune
In a glass of wine.
Snail or fish,
Balloon or dolphin
See your silver shine.
This is your time,
This is your day.
You’ve got it all,
Don’t blow it away.
The chef prepares a special menu
For your delight, oh my.
Tonight you fly, so high up
In the Vanilla Sky
In the vanilla, uh, in the vanilla, oh, in the vanilla sky.
In the vanilla, ah, in the vanilla, uh, in the vanilla sky.
Mmmm in the Vanilla Sky.”

“Music is to the soul what words are to the mind.”
― Modest Mouse, Modest Mouse – Good News for People Who Love Bad News

“Music is … A higher revelation than all Wisdom & Philosophy”
― Ludwig van Beethoven

“You’ve been looking, but your search will never end” as you can look forever for the perfect friends, but you’ll never find them.

“Everybody has that point in their life where you hit a crossroads and you’ve had a bunch of bad days and there’s different ways you can deal with it and the way I dealt with it was I just turned completely to music.”
― Taylor Swift

 

“I thought I’d teach my robot to write all of my songs…”

 

“Music, once admitted to the soul, becomes a sort of spirit, and never dies.”
Edward Bulwer-Lytton

 

“My ambition was to live like music.”
Mary Gaitskill

“Music touches us emotionally, where words alone can’t.”
Johnny Depp

 

Relationships and Music…


“For every passing minute, is another chance to turn it all around.”

“I want to live a real life, I don’t want to dream anymore.”

 

Making connections…

“A man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of his life, in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of the beautiful which God has implanted in the human soul.”
― Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
