Music changes moods..What makes you remember a song? What is it about a song that transcends generations? Is it the words, the feeling…the rhythm…probably all of that….Someone asks me if I know a song and I say no and then they play it and I say yes.
Hearing it evokes memories and feelings that are primal….I think of some of the jazz classics…such as “Summertime”…Whether you’re 16 or 60 you can get into the feeling of the song…I’m more into the feeling and the lyrics take a back seat..I end up tapping my foot..moving my whole body but can’t tell you what was said in the song…..
What are your three all time favorites….and why…One of my favorites is the Beattles…”Fool on the Hill”…I love everything about the song including the words…I would sit on a hillside listening to my headset for hours……Imagine was also one of my favorites…I loved Dylan’s “Lay Lady Lay”…They defined an era for me..I”m thinking back now of other songs that remind of a time in my life….the music takes over and changes whatever was going on…
