an art of sound in time that expresses ideas and emotions in significant forms through the elements of rhythm, melody, harmony, and color.
I believe music is one of the key differences between humans and the rest of the animals on this world. Music communicates emotion strictly through sound — from joy to sorrow, anger to love. It can lift us up when we are down, helping us through troubled times. Music will cause us to sit in contemplation or dance with glee.
We connect with music.
Throughout my life I have connected deeply with music. It has helped me through many tough times in my life and brought me great joy in others. Music has taken some of the best moments of my life and made them better, and helped me reflect back on others.
I want to share the music that connects with me in case it should connect with someone else. Every week I will be posting a different song that I have connected with in some way. Take a listen. If you like it, add the song to your library. If you don’t, wait until the following week; we all like something a little different.
I also want to hear what music you connect with. Send suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org. I promise I’ll listen, and may post it as part of the series.
Remember, life is an Open Road; turn up the radio and sign along.
