Does music make you happy? I think we all get great enjoyment from music. Not just from the words, but from the whole composition. The ability to be transported to worlds unknown is open to us all if we just allow it. Music will make us think and sway. Music will change or mood and can make every day better. Make your day better by putting together the correct mix. With the advent of music streaming services we all have great options. First things first. If you want to hear your music like you have never before please discard the ear buds that came with your cellphone. Most cellphones will do a pretty good job of bring the content to you but the headphones are a disgrace. Do some research and invest in a good quality headphone. That does not mean BEATS.

Go explore and let the music move you.


I never leave home without a good pair of headphones. How I came into that habit I am not sure. It may have something to do with growing up around great music, even if it was conservative christian music. The exposure to wonderful sounds is an experience unto itself.
The joy of music is universal and the very universality is why we don’t need to understand the words to enjoy the experience. If you need the words you have not understood the power of music.
The language of music is as universal as mathematics. The communication of meaning is not about the rote definition of the words. It is about the resonance of the beat in you brain. It is about the translation of the physical to the digital. We are by nature digital, and the emotion of good music is translated without regard to the dictionary.
We all have the beat in us. We all have rhythm. Like with every other part of life the question is a matter of nutrition. Have you been exposed to a diverse musical palate? If you were, the beat is there. The beat is there, just feel it. Just catch the beat, move with it and stop being ashamed.
