I am in love with music. It is my meditation. I love everything about it. I love how it can play with my emotions and relieve me of my constant need for control. It’s like I get to take a break from everything that is crazy or chaotic and just get lost in something beautiful, or peaceful, or energizing, or whatever it is I need as an escape. I love how it can pull me out of a dark place, instantly put a smile of my face, make me cry for no reason, make me cry for a loved one, take me to an exact moment of my past, give me motivation and energy or calm me down.
I also love the fact that my husband shares this passion with me. I will admit, however, while I enjoy music, he tends to be a little obsessive about it. He can name that tune, finish that song, recall the year of that album was released, you name it, he probably owns it.
When asked the question, "What is your favorite song?", my go-to answer has always been "Into the Mystic" by Van Morrison, however, my musical tastes are constantly changing. In fact, as of recently, my favorite group/singer duo has been Drew Holcomb and the Neighbors. Talk about love at first listen!!!
A few months ago I was searching online for the song "Live Forever" by Billy Jo Shaver and accidently opened up a song with the same title. I realized right away it wasn't what I was looking for, but I ended up listening and about 3 more songs later, I was completely hooked. Pure talent and love with this couple. Have a listen to my favorite (for the moment) of their songs, "Someday" here. Enjoy!
