I know this was to be turned in on Friday. Due to life, I am very behind on the promises I have made for myself. Even though I know this is late and not eligible for entry, I am still going through with this because I believe in what @eaglespirit is doing and this is the best way to show support. Winning prizes is awesome. Helping friends means more to me.
Sorry, not getting any singing from me LOL. The kids still think I sing great, I think their biased. As far as poetry, most music is poetry so that's covered 😋 I had 2 approaches to this, freedom of music and the freedom in music. I was trying to decide which way I was going to go. Just sitting down and processing how I am going to forward it looks like I am going to be covering how music affects me, always the easiest way to approach just about anything.
Growing up the best way for me to just lose myself was with music. I tolerated what my mom listened to, but what really struck a chord with me is when I could actually releate to the music. To many of my friends heard a tune and loved a song. I was the one always singing along with the music. Depending on my mood would depend on how I would react. Most of the time I just get it lost in the music. I keeps my mind at ease. It keeps my mind from wandering to places it doesn't go. I am grateful that the job I have now I can play my own play list and just work away. It's takes such a stress off. I sing, I research and away I go.
Freedom songs aren't all songs freedom to the musician? Music comes from a place within us. Good, bad, life, and feelings isn't that the making of of a song? Here are a few examples to get you thinking. 'A.D.I.D.A.S' by Korn, Jonathan Davis has said in several interviews that the song was about his addiction to sex when he was younger. This one I think is a little obvious regarding the content of the song. The song '3am' by Matchbox Twenty, was about when Rob Thomas' mom was dying of cancer. She would have moments of being delirious. When you really listen to this song knowing this, it changes everything. 'Pumped Up Kicks' by Foster The People is about the Columbine Massacre. I know how the incident affected me, it has taken on new meaning now living in Colorado. Quite a few people in the community here honestly never forget anything.
Listening to non-lyrical music is far more freeing. If you have ever sat down and listened to a concerto. Watch a musician play, not a rock band, a violinist, flutist or a cellist. I get more wrapped up in someone playing a piece of music and watching them be a part of the music. It moves them more than it moves the listener. It's a balance a pure blissful freedom. I have played the violin and flute for a short period of time. Watching my mother cringe everytime time I got a note wrong. I thoroughly enjoyed it regardless of how poorly I played. The funny fact, I was so small when I was in grade school when I played, my fingers couldn't reach the right combinations. Violin was much easier than the flute was. I have no idea why our teacher didn't talk me into the piccolo, I would have been able to reach the valves much easier.
As long as there is music, there will always freedom. Freedom from dark thoughts or problems from the musician and the listener. Freedom to be free from and enjoy weddings, special moments, and so forth will always take us back to a time and place. It will always give both parties a freedom to be. It is truly what resonates within you. With music on the radio, take a moment and truly listen to the lyrics.
