Just by reading the title of this blog, most of you know exactly what I mean. Music is a huge part of what makes me..” me”. Personally I think music is a huge part to all of us. Rock, Alternative, Country, R&B, Classical, Blues, Rap… whatever genre(s) you fancy, its all beautiful. We all have our favorite bands, solo artists and songs that speak to our broken hearts and glowing souls. Who’s your favorite band, solo artist or song??
Me? I have my top five bands that always seem to know how to calm the storms, shake my hips or turn me into a rock star chick cranking up the tunes and belting it out!
5<3 Eminem. 4<3 Maroon 5 3<3 3 Doors Down. 2<3 U2. 1<3 Fall Out Boy
Now don’t get me wrong, these aren’t the only bands I listen to…I’m a lover of all music. These are just my go to bands that I’ve been a fan of since I was either little or since I discovered their cd in a store.
Then there are those certain songs that I always have in my playlists. From Far Away by Nickelback to Waiting for Superman by Daugherty to the one song that I refer to as the soundtrack to who I am. If you listen to this particular song, you will get a personal inside look into my heart, soul and mind (which isn’t something I allow just anyone to see)… Iris by The Goo Goo Dolls. Lyrics, music, its embedded into every stitch in every scar.
Cooking in the kitchen, cleaning the house, doing the laundry, washing dishes, writing, running errands in the car, a day at the beach… it doesn’t matter Ive got a playlist to rock out to it all.
Happy, sad, pissed off, confused, momentarily broken, excited… no matter the feeling that is swimming through my mind… I’ve got a song to numb the pain or make those great moments fabulous.
Music… its a part of our everyday lives… its a part of our triumphant moments… its a part of our downfalls… its a perfect marriage between words and sounds… it turns a moment into a memory that lives on from generation to generation…. it inspires
It makes our speakers bump…. our eardrums vibrate…. our vocal cords hum…. our lips sing…. our bodies dance….
Music is the heart of this amazing world.
Until next blog…. Love Derra ❤
