Music Heals

Music helped me many times in my life. During some bouts of depression, breakups, grief, loneliness, anxiety, and other emotions. It can help you get more energized during a workout and make you burn fat faster. Whenever I am feeling letharigic I put on some dance music and feel more energized. When I am sad I put on some Thievery Corporation and feel a lot better. It makes me feel more alive. Whenever I don't feel like cleaning my house I put on some music and the house is clean an hour or two later (or three-four hours later).

It's amazing what music can do. Put on some meditation music or some slow lounge music and you feel more calm and taken into another world. Music can be very therapeutic. It changes lives. It brings out different sensations in your body. Some music can help you learn better. It can help you get through difficult times in your life.

When my dad died of cancer, I listened to a lot of music. I had a CD playing all day long. It helped me a lot during that tough time. It made me feel less alone. Nothing was helping me at the time and that helped me. It helped me connect to that special part of myself that usually needs some help sometimes to open up.

I love going to concerts. There's a magic that happens in the air with the audience at a concert. Everybody gets connected with the joy of the music. The first time I went to a Thievery Corporation concert I felt that. They had a light show along with the concert. They have different singers for almost every song and each song has a different kind of sound. It was amazing. I didn't even know who they were. My friend got the tickets and asked me if I wanted to go. I never pass up a concert. When I went there I was changed as a person. I felt the happiness of the crowd and the music brought out a joy in me that hadn't been there for a very long time. This is a video from the concert. This song brought out my spirit. Hope you like it and see what I saw.

When you mentioned Thievery Corporation, I got an entirely different idea of what you meant (I took the name literally), but, good hub, Caroline, and I did enjoy the video. I "do" like some Rap music. I guess what I don't like is when some lead singers feel so "into" themselves that they feel they "must" frontally "play" with themselves while they're singing--do you know what I mean?

SubRon lol I do know what you mean. Thievery Corporation is really a DJ world music type of genre. They have different music as well. I'm glad you liked the video.

Nice hub Caroline, It had me thinking of all the songs that have helped me during hard times and the CD's that no longer play from over use. I can't imagine life without music.

Hi, Caroline!

You're simply awesome!... And you're so right about it.

Yep, what is life w/o music.

When I'm down, I will listen to Josh Groban's.

When feels like jumping, Creed is the one.

But, now I think I'm gonna shake my hips...Shakira, here I come! LOL!

Great hub!Up and away :D

...my dear Caroline - no one, I could ever imagine, loves music more than the epi-man so naturally this title caught my eye - and I too lost my dad to cancer back in 1992 at the tender young age of 74 - I also lost my best friend (as was my mum who passed away in 2004 at 83) but my dad would be proud of me and my accomplishments here at the Hub (as he was a writer too by hobby -he wrote 69 unpublished novels and one memoirs of his days as a soldier the war)

..please let me reach out and give you a cyber hug for what you have gone through also - and of course because life goes on - or at least it has to - you celebrate your dear father's beloved memory with music and those beautiful thoughts - music does make the world go round and this most life affirming hub subject will be posted to my Facebook page with a direct link back here.

Thanks Epi I will give you a cyber hug also. I don't think you are ever too young or too old to feel the repercussions of a parent dying, especially from cancer. It is heartbreaking to see anybody you love dying from a sickness where you cannot cure them of. My dad passed away when I was 26 and I still felt like a little girl when he did. I also was taking care of my grandmother when she passed away from cancer which was heartbreaking to see. You are a great writer and everybody loves you at the hubs. You're father would be proud.

Dear Caroline ~ Cancer is a devastating disease that takes the lives of more than the afflicted. This disease affects the entire family, friends and those connected to the person. Music has the potential to heal. ROCK ON! Blessings, Debby
