Life is better with Music
Do you find that life is much better with Music? I do. I love music and can’t imagine life without those seven little notes. Music for me is that basic ingredient of life that you must listen to with your heart, not with your ears.
That’s right. Music is a bunch of notes, instruments and voices put together so they can penetrate your ears. But if that is all there is to Music for you… I think you don’t really love music.
It doesn’t matter the kind of music you listen to, whether it is classical or modern; opera or hip-hop; reggae or disco music; romantic, sexy or political. What matters is that it touches your soul, that it makes you feel.
All the Arts have the ability to touch us in one way or another, and our attraction to them is purely subjective. Some of us are drawn to visual arts, others to performing arts, literary… This is because we are human and we tend to look for beauty.
I try to imagine a world without music and I just can’t. Nor can I imagine a world without books and reading, sculptures and handicrafts, films and theatre, architecture and design, paintings, drawings and all kinds of expression.
I love music because it makes me feel. If I feel a bit down, I just need to play some songs with some beat and good lyrics and my mood changes for the better (have you tried it?). I think I could go crazy without music. It also relaxes me if I need it. There’s a different kind of music for every state of mind I’m in and for every state of mind I wanna get into.
Also, can you imagine a trip with no music? I love playing music in my car and can’t understand how one of my sisters doesn’t like it at all. I can’t drive two meters without music or go out for a walk without my Walkman. No, I don’t use my iPhone.
The many reasons why WE LOVE MUSIC!!
Music makes you feel.
It has to be the right music at the right time, naturally. I know that a lot of people, men and women, listen to really sad songs when they just broke up with their partners. I know also that this is what your heart seems to be “requesting” from you. But it’s the worst thing you can do. If you are really sad and upset and play really sad music, the feeling of sadness is not gonna go away.
The opposite also applies. If you are about to go to bed for a good night’s sleep, it would be rather silly to play energetic music because it will make you feel excited, not relaxed.
For me, music is inexplicably therapeutic.
The only artist that can make me feel both happy and a bit upset at the same time is Madonna. But that is because sometimes I find her songs uplifting and sometimes they make me reflect upon stuff too much. See more in Madonna Albums Ranked.
Music can put you in a better mood.
Find a song or a piece that makes you absolutely happy and play it when you’re in a bad mood or upset. You will find that it can change the way you were seeing things.
Music can be used to relax (you or others).
If you are feeling a bit anxious or nervous, find some music to relax a little and really listen, trying to avoid the thoughts that are causing that anxiety.
Music is a good theme to talk about.
The theme of Music can be great to start a conversation.
Music stimulates your brain and improves performance.
It is widely known that music is beneficial for your brain and it can help improving your performance. Some people concentrate better when listening to music. It also helps if you want alleviate tiredness and boredom.
Music pumps up your energy.
If you want to feel more energetic, try playing some upbeat music. I have tested myself when power walking that if I don’t listen to music I walk slower.
Music is a way to remember periods of our life easily.
Isn’t it great? Sometimes we hear a song somewhere and it instantly transports us to some past time.
Music doesn’t judge you nor give you her opinion yet she might help you…
…with certain things (making a decision, for example).
If you are looking for advice, sometimes your friends or family will not be as handy as you would like to. Play some music you like and really listen with your heart. It might help you to make the correct decision.
Certain types of music are good for your sleep.
If you suffer from minor sleeping disorders, try listening to some soothing music 30 minutes before you go to bed. Don’t think of your problems and worries during half an hour and go to bed immediately after.
Music bring people together.
It has done so for ages. People used to gather around a good song or sing together to make it rain. Music is and should be a way to bring people together, regardless of their gender, race, religion, social status or beliefs. In her song Music, Madonna states this clearly:
Music makes the people come together
Music mix the bourgeoisie and the rebel
The bourgeoisie for Karl Marx were those people who lived in the cities, as opposed to the people who lived in the country. The rebels are those who go against any kind of conventionalism. So in her song, Madonna says that it doesn’t matter who you are or where you come from, music always brings different people together.
