I believe the one thing that can bring people together is music. Lately, I have been trying to find new artists to listen too and it has been hard to discover new ones. For those of us who are a little older, the Radio would help. Radio before commercialization and when you could turn to another station and not hear the same song. I keep listening to what I consider my oldies/goodies. My favorite artists like Nine Inch Nails, Sarah McLachlan, Tamia. Now I have found some new artists by word of mouth or by utilizing Soundcloud. My new obsessions are Lykke Li and now A A Bondy.
It is so weird how your favorite artist can make you feel like they wrote the song for you. How could someone you never met create your current reality in a few verses or construct a musical composition matching your consciousness? Music can relieve stress, express your feelings without saying a word, or transport you to another reality.
When you need that little boost Just Hit Repeat. For us writers, it can also be a source of creativity. You can play music that can send you to the world of your own creation. Sometimes we all need a little help to get there.
What song makes you want to hit repeat?
