For Ashley: What is Music: Part I

Have you ever sat down in your car, or in the kitchen, and instinctivly turned on the radio? You know why? You are a music lover. Music is much more than just a sound, it’s a living thing… What is music to you?

Music is something that can control your very emotions, how many times have you listened to a song on the radio, or heard a song in a movie, and bought the song, or downloaded the song for yourself? Music can make us feel any number of emotions, from Annoyed, to Mad, to Recessed, to Happy. If someone asked you what music was, do you think you could answer? I could, but only after some serious thought. Here are a few of my views on Music.

Music, It has feeling. Music, some say, is alive. Music changes, and almost always manages to end on a good note. (Pardon the pun) Music is like a good friend, it can make you feel trashed, pissed, or just plain crazy. Some people even do drugs to music, because it provokes their mind when they’re already in a “High” state. A well known song, that almost everyone likes that I know of, is For Those About To Rock (We Salute You) by AC/DC, That song, is very atheryial, and makes you feel tougher when you listen to it. It makes you feel indomidtable. Usually, AFI’s (A Fire Inside) songs make you feel, a little down, maybe a little mad at the world. Music can rend your soul in twain, like Concrete Angles, by Martina McBride, I belive, is a song that can make you feel a broad range of emotion.

For some, music is a savior, from bordom, from daily life, from sadness. Music can be an escape, from the sadness people face everyday. Have you ever been walking in the hall, and just wanted to listen to anything, and then later, you’ll know the exact song you want. Thats another way music affects us each and everyday. Music can be an addiction to some, because it offers an outlet for pent up hostility, sadness, or any range of other emotions. A song that a lot of people know of that is very calming is called Bittersweet Symphony, by The Verve. The song is very calming as is it very slow paced and yet somehow full of energy. It’s a forumla that helps with being hyper, in a way it’s almost a buzz-kill, but thats what I’m talking about. Music affects us in a multitude of ways and can be many things to many people, in short, you have to respect it, if someone doesn’t have one particular song on their MP3 player. Always enjoy your music, and don’t be ashamed of it. It’s something different for everyone!
