Have you ever had one of those days when you just need to chill out and lose yourself in the music?
Recently I had one of those days.
My phone doesn’t have a huge selection of tracks, but it seemed like on this particular day, my phone chose the perfect selection of songs to make me feel better.
I love the power of music, being transported to another time through a song, a lyric or even a melody its a magical feeling.
It’s strange how a certain song can always make you feel that exact same emotion over and over again.
For me that one song is Boyzone’s ‘Everyday I Love You’ a truly beautiful song that always has me in floods of tears, no matter how hard I fight against them.
This is one of my favourite songs but because of how emotional it makes me I rarely listen to it these days.
On the other side of the scale there is ‘Livin On A Prayer’ by Bon Jovi and ‘Summer Of 69’ by Bryan Adams.
These songs will always have me up on the dance floor, singing my heart out and jumping around like a lunatic.
Here’s an even stranger one, my mum used to sing ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow’ to me as a child to make me sleep and still to this day it has that same effect.
I often feel rude if I watch an artist sing this song as I always end up yawning.
It doesn’t matter who is singing it either, I’m a huge fan of Ronan Keating and when he sang it many years ago.
Despite Ronan being one of my favourite singers I couldn’t stop myself from yawning.
I’d love to know what songs have an effect on you and why?
I am also on the look out for music that I should listen to.
So feel free to send me any links to videos or names of artists and song titles.
I then intend on having one post a week dedicated to a new song that I have discovered and my thoughts and feelings on that particular track.
