It was Plato that said, “Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.”
Imagine your favorite movies without the music. It would just not be the same. Even Beethoven, one of the greatest composers of all time, was deaf. A deaf man, knowing how important music is. I think that speaks for itself.
We all have a song that we could hit rewind over and over again and never tire of. It speaks to the bottom of our gut and hits at the greatest depth of our soul. We, in many cases, cannot even explain why. Is it the music? Occasionally. Usually, however, it is the music and the lyrics that come together to become that one perfect song that you never tire of. It usually is not your very favorite song, but you claim it as your own. It is the first song you run to when you are having a bad day, and the song you put on repeat in the car when you just want to zone out and think. What song puts you in that mood? For me it is “Low Mans Lyric” by Metallica. I, of course, am picking out a live version (with maximum Hetfield coverage) 0-:-) And YES, for goodness gracious….. Paul has my heart a million times over…. every bit of it. So, enjoy “Low Mans Lyric”, my ultimate ‘mood’ song. For those that DO NOT like metal, don’t worry…. it IS a ballad sort of song. What is YOUR mood song? I would sure love to know! Until next time……. K.
