“Music is the food for the soul”. The value of Music on a man’s emotional life knows no bounds. Music can take you to a million places without having to step out of the comfort of your home. It has the enchanting ability of awakening our imagination; making us fly back in time and re-live all those long buried memories. One particular song can make us either laugh, cry or even jump up and shake leg to the tune! Each piece of music means something entirely different to every person. While “Summer of ‘69” by Bryan Adams makes one person reminisce his childhood days in joy, it could invoke a dark realization in another person that his glory days are now long gone. All over the world, people turn to the melodies of music to relax after a hard day’s work: Rhythm itself being a great tranquilizer.
Nowhere has it been said that only music composers can experience the true joy music that provides the heart and soul. There is always a song or a piece of music that reflects exactly what we feel and our current state of mind. Fed up with books and studies?? “Another Brick In The Wall” by Pink Floyd is your anthem. Lost your loved one recently?? Perhaps you can identify with Pearl Jam’s “Last Kiss”. Feeling a little lonely?? “Boulevard of Broken Dreams” by Greenday is what you should be listening to. Had a tough day at work and need to unwind?? Beethoven, Bach and Mozart will rescue you from the mundane tasks of life and take you away to a place where everything is absolutely magical! The music legends always seem to come up with a piece that describes every single emotion you feel.
Music is not made for the EARS; it’s made for the heart and the soul. Music in itself is healing. It’s an explosive expression of humanity; something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we’re from, everyone loves music. Music has the beauty of expressing loneliness and pain, strength and freedom. And the beauty of unrequited and everlasting love. There is a power in music that can alter a soul. It can bring in a flood of emotions with a single note. As the popular saying goes, “After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.”
“Music gives a soul to the universe,
Wings to the mind,
Flight to the imagination
And life to everything”
