Where Can The Music Take You?

Tonight I was listening to some of the music that I haven’t heard in years, yet at one point in my life I knew those songs word for word. All I took was a few lines from a song, and I was transported back to that moment in time . All the memories coming flooding back in, the good, the painful, the laughter and the tears. All those hopes and fears, the sureness that comes from being eighteen, the insecurities and the doubts that come from being eighteen.

Do You Hear The Music?

Anyone that has ever lived through that part of their life can appreciate the fact that the music you hear often plays a large role. Certain songs have the effect of taking you back to a particular moment in time, and making that memory crystal clear.  Years ago, I was working with a fellow named Cam and one morning we heard Dobey Gray’s ‘Drift Away’ on the radio. He turned to me and said, “I’m waiting with two of my friends for Kenny Johnson’s dad to pick us up to take us to hockey practice. How about you?the music

 I replied without hesitation, “I’m on the BC Ferry coming back from Horseshoe Bay with my dad and I’m eating French fries.” It was a magic moment for both of us, one of those rare times in life when you truly connect with another person. There are few things that can take us back to a specific point in our life in the same way that a song can.

Think about songs that have special meaning to you. They may have played at your graduation or at your wedding, a friends celebration of life or just a simple time that has meaning for you. Movie makers and commercial advertisers have long known the value of the music to create a feeling or a specific reaction from their audience.

The point that I want to make is that we associate certain songs with very specific feelings and memories. If you want to set your mood, you can use music to do so. When you need periods of productivity and creativity use music with those type of qualities that are conducive to thinking and planning. Upbeat songs are great to play before taking on physical tasks, and songs that exude confidence are valuable prior to potentially unpleasant or confrontational environments.

The music that you use can either help you relax and unwind, or it can help get your energy levels cranked up depending on what you select to play. Determine what works best for you and use it. After all, who can refuse to listen to music given a choice?

    Hi Sigrid

    I can’t say that I could relate a song to a memory but music can definitely change your mood. When your sad and you hear a sad song you cry but if you hear a lively song it lifts your mood. Upbeat songs definitely help in the gym.

    Great post understanding how you connected through music.

    Hmmm, I can get lost for hours on Godvine, Youtube or Spotify. For some reason, music not only brings back memories for me, but particularly scents…isn't that odd? Who knew we had a 'smell' memory? Love the post.

    Thanks so much for the comment Rachel. I had never thought of that aspect, but now that you mention it, I too can associate smells with songs…

    It’s true. Music is a powerful medium that directly affects the soul.
    I like to put in earbuds and play classical music while I work. It really helps me to focus and produce.
