The Write Tribe Festival of Words. Day 4: Music

The Write Tribe Festival of Words. This is an exciting blogging event from December 8th to December 14, 2013


Day 4: Music (I missed Day 3 Books)

It is said that music is the soundtrack of your life. I agree. There are songs that take me right back to a moment, a feeling, a healing place at any period of my life.  Even songs that were a part of my broken hearts, music served me well.

My first album I bought was Earth, Wind & Fire... I remain a huge fan to this day, and I see them every time they are in CT.

Even now at 50 years old I am at my best when there is music wafting through the house, office, car. Sure I enjoy silence.  But music moves me to my highest self.  From Gregorian chants to James Brown I dig it all. I love secular and sacred music. I have room for it all.  I listen to it all. although Rap music after early 90s no longer holds any interest to me.  However, put on Public Enemy, Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five, RUN DMC, Kurtis Blow, Sugar Hill Gang I am on my feet bobbing my head.

Everything by Aretha Franklin, Gladys Knight, Nina Simone, Carol King, Minnie Ripperton, Carly Simon, Melody Gadot, Adele.  And oh so many more, because music is like breathing to me.  I am no singer, but I can and do sing along with every song in my library.  I have music for any mood that suits me from Rock to Praise.

I love music. I'll let the O'Jays speak for me....

Love some of the choices there.. and I agree. I guess its a sign of me getting old but I miss the soulful tunes of the 70s,80s and 90s. You could sing those... there was no need for rapping interludes or fancy makeup. The song, the voice, the melody.. these carried it through.
