Feel The Music, Listen To the Music, Love the Music!

Music, Songs, All Wonderful!

Music, gosh, where to start, basically, I love music, I love how it moves me and makes me feel. I just like some songs better than others which is normal. But It depends on what I am in the mood for, song lyrics, love lyrics and then I listen to that song that fits my mood. Music takes many forms, many lyrics and reflects many different ways of life. It certainly has reflected on my life in many ways.

Just a brief history lesson here, for thousand’s and thousand’s of years in early history, music existed only as simple and natural voice sounds from men and women. Through the decades we have only made it better by adding the piano, violin, clarinet and many other unique instruments. Can you believe that?

Love Music!

The way to take pleasure in music, is to find music that touches you, interests you and surrounds your total being. We all appreciate various songs, lyrics and melodies because it communicates something to us in which we find brief or long lasting satisfaction. I adore music, all kinds, and all kinds communicate to me differently and I hope to you too. Below are a few songs that communicate to me in special and unique way. See how they communicate to you...

Barbra Streisand “Evergreen” the most romantic song that touches me in the deepest part of my heart, it clearly communicates undying love and romance in it's love lyrics.

Sarah McLachlan “I Will Remember You” saddest song, every time I hear it I think of my friend who died from cancer. Such a touching, sad song about memories and life, love and remembering. Many songs are sad but this one is the saddest.

Carly Simon “Your So Vain” best song in the whole world when someone has pissed you off. Describes many people out there who are mad at someone. If you don’t know it, just listen to it, fun but true song.

Josh Groban “You raise me up” by far the best inspirational song of my lifetime. This simply is just a beautiful song. Songs like this is very touching and help. Great wedding song.

Marvin Gaye “Sexual Healing” I just want to get crazy to this song, it’s pure sex, heated romance and the song lyrics embeds all the sensual, sexy and masculinity for lovemaking.

Flo Rida “Low” best dance song, I pick this because my son will dance all night to this song. It’s great, fun and has some awesome rhythm within it.

Music is about interpretation, above is my interpretation of music that communicates to me in certain ways. Melody is the musical tones, in its simplest form a tune. We remember a beautiful song and/or songs more for its melody than for its words. Harmony is the tones we hear with a tone that strengthens it and often sets the mood. Rhythm may be considered as everything that has to do with the length of the musical sounds. Tempo is the rate of speed at which music is played. A change in tempo can often change the meaning in tempo. Tone Color is the most indefinable quality in music; it’s the human voices that project the range of notes and different sounds. All of these factors play into making beautiful music and songs, along with instruments.

Music is pure and a gift to us all. So I ask you, what is your favorite? Mine are listed above and I enjoy more music each day, open your mind, open your ears and listen to the old to the new music available to us, it’s a gift, embrace it.

Yeah man! I love that Marvin Gaye stuff too. He had such a good voice! i like a wide variety from death metal to downtempo to Miles Davis. So much good music reminds us of who and what we are.

Gusripper, I love the old rock (and alot of the new) and the heartache in some of them is overwhelming.

Rob Dee, I didn't think of Miles Davis, such a great one! You are right music does reminds us of who an what we are, or at least where we were during that time.

Thanks for commenting you two!

I love Chris Botti's version of "My Funny Valentine." I, too like all kinds of music depending on what kind of mood I'm in. Very good hub!

Interesting and well written Hub...

When I listen to music its not for background sound, or filling the quiet time at work...I listen to Andrew Lloyd Webber on CD or DVD and become enraptured with the words and music...His birthday celebration in London is the most enduring, spectacular, and imaginative production ever put on film...Larry

I love all kinds of good music except rap. In other words, singing is an important element in music unless it is instrumental. I played rock music professionally as a drummer and singer for 25 years. But my favorite album of all time is "Romantic Warrior" by Return to Forever. My favorite band is Pink Floyd with the Beatles second. Thanks for a fine hub.

Ladybird this Is such a tough question as I have many moods and music I listen to at any given time reflects those moods .

Also my musical taste are very diverse I can go from the Sex Pistols and Led Zeppelin to John Legend or Ryan Bingham .

And like James I go ape over The Beatles and probably know just about every song word for word .

Mtsi1098, I am like you, I do like and appreciate all types of music.

Bingskee, you and me too. thanks for commenting.

James, How are you? Well, you do have a lot to offer in this area. I am impress and I must say, I do like some rap. I don't know Romantic Warrior but I am going to look it up. Thanks for the tip.

Tony 0724, I was never a big Beatles fan, however, I really like Sex Pistols and love John Legend, he is like a throw back to me, with his soft soulful music. Thanks for letting me know.

Katacham, Yes, Love Kings of Leon, just really getting into them now.

As you can tell from my avatar, Ladybird, I love music, too. If you're not familiar with Bing Crosby, you have a treat coming. Your selections seem to be good ones although I'm not all that familiar with all of them. If you want to hear some of the very best singers, you'll find them on my most recent hub: http://hubpages.com/entertainment/Torpeys-Favorite...
