The Power Of Song And Music

If one were to crack a conversation on music, it would probably take ages to end it.

The songs of yesteryears and today may be different sounding, but what they will always have in common is that they serve as the medium for everyone to express himself or herself, regardless of what he or she wishes to express.

Some songs express enjoyment and happiness. They are the songs that you would want to groove and move to, and make you let your hair down, especially after a hard day at work.

Some songs express grief and sorrow. Songs like these are normally played on the radio by people who have got something that is shattering their lives, such as the loss of someone they hold very dear in their hearts, but have difficulties translating those feelings into words.

There are songs that portray one’s anger and fury towards something or someone. When your heart has to face a deep cut, it just makes you want to throw tantrums, and that is what these songs are all about.

Besides that, there are songs that simply ease your mind and soul. Ballads are the best examples. When listening to these beautiful and melodious tunes, all you want to do is immerse yourself into another world of peace and quiet, where nothing gets in your way and you can forget about everything that has been stressing and tiring you for the day. They are without a doubt the ultimate stress reliever.

Not to forget, we also have inspirational songs that can lift you up whenever you are down. These songs can in fact make a difference in people’s lives, as long as you listen assiduously to the message behind every word in them. Such songs can even bring love, peace and joy to the entire universe. That is where the phrase ‘music is universal’ comes into the picture!

But above all, songs are always created to express love. Love songs are created for people who are deeply in love and have found the right person to fill up the special place in their hearts. On the contrary, they are also created for those whose love lives have fallen into pieces. And sometimes, love songs are also specially dedicated for someone special in our lives, like our family and friends.

Songs can at times be our way of telling someone what we are feeling at that point. And based on our experiences, that someone can actually sense what we are feeling and thinking about whenever we listen or hum to the song in his or her presence. So whenever we feel sad and express it through music rather than by talking it out, he or she is somehow able to grasp the fact that we are facing a crisis or dilemma and would even strive to help us overcome it.

Whatever the lyrics in the songs mean, they are always regarded as the form of expressing feelings and thoughts about something and someone. Life without songs, to us, is like a drawing without the colors.

So friends, remember to fill your life with songs and music that you can enjoy and relate to, because you may never know how much impact that song can make on you and your life.

With all that you need to know about songs, we are now going to share with you the seven songs that are soothing to our ears and that we can relate easily to at this juncture.

This is an interesting meme that we have been tagged on by two lovely ladies, Jean and Marzie.

The Rules:-

List seven songs you are into right now. No matter what the genre, whether they have words, or even if they’re not any good, but they must be songs you’re really enjoying now, shaping your spring. Post these instructions in your blog along with your 7 songs. Then tag other people to see what they’re listening to.

Alright, without further ado, presenting our Top Seven!

1. Mariah Carey – Hero
2. Earth, Wind And Fire – Boogie Wonderland
3. Jordin Sparks – This Is My Now
4. Queen – Another One Bites The Dust
5. Bon Jovi – It’s My Life
6. Lighthouse Family – Be Happy
7. Boyzone – Picture Of You

We certainly love these songs! Now let us all hear from the following people:

Wah wah such a great song article from NAFA!! Good job guys and I do love those stress reliever songs... One of my fave feelgood songs is Hey by Fatima Rainey he he...never fail to make me feel good! ;)

Hello Jean!

Yeah no problem at all. We loved doing this meme!

Oh u love our song choices too? Great! But that song from Queen is quite old, so perhaps not everyone in our generation knows the song. Haha! We are young people who are into oldies. Hahaha! ;p

But u can listen to it whenever u can. It's an upbeat song and Queen was a very very popular rock band back in those days. Sadly, the lead vocalist passed away in 1991.

Hello GP!!!

Oh yeah we love Fatima Rainey too. Actually we have so many songs that we love, but here we can only pick seven, so it was a very tough choice to make. Hehe!

And we too love those stress reliever songs. They are the best songs to listen to whenever we need a real good break!

Anyway, no problem at all. Glad to be part of this very very interesting meme! Thanks to u and Jean for tagging us. =)
