The Power of Music

One thing about music is that when it hits you, you feel no pain. My music taste ranges from “You’ve gotta listen to this” to “I know, please don’t judge me.” A day without music is like…just kidding, I have no idea. When I was a little boy, I told my Dad, ‘When I grow up, I want to be a musician.’ My Dad said: ‘You can’t do both son.’

Singing in the shower is all fun and games until you get shampoo in your mouth. Then it just becomes a soap opera. Music, the other non-addictive, mood-altering non-substance. Don’t you just hate when you’re singing a song and the artist gets the words wrong? Like, it’s better the way I sing it, Ed Sheeran didn’t think this particular line through. I’m the superior artiste.

Ask your Doctor if music is right for you. Common side effects include but are not limited to uncontrolled head-bobbing, toe-tapping, finger-snapping, selective hearing impairment and persistent melody flashbacks. There’s always one song that reminds you of a person, place, or time and makes you miss it so much. There’s this particular song that takes me back to the exact moment my lunch money was stolen in primary school.

I wish my life had background music, so I could understand what the hell is going on. When I show up late to work and my boss is fuming, I want some heavy metal playing in the background with a WWE announcement so I know it’s on. If I run into a group of petty thieves, I want the Game of Thrones theme song to come on so I can take them out like John Snow.

If everyone was in a happy relationship there wouldn’t be any good music. We needed that Adele heartbreak for all the masterpieces we’ve been blessed with. So if you’re in a happy relationship with a musician, you know what to do. Sad and depressing music is good for the soul, it’s no wonder it’s so popular. My generation had Lana Del Rey and the coming one has Billie Eilish. I like my music sad and depressing.

My neighbours listen to good music, whether they like it or not. It is my duty! Sitting in an exam and all you can think of is song lyrics. My brain is 90% song lyrics anyway. That awkward moment when your phone goes off full volume at a funeral. Even more awkward if your ringtone is “I Will Survive.” Music is a funny thing when you really think about it. Ladies, if a man whistles at you, do not respond. You are a lady, not a dog.

Whenever I have a problem, I sing. Then I realize my voice is a lot worse than my problem. Never pause the music I’m listening to without my permission. Even if the house is on fire, leave me plugged into my headphones. A good movie with bad music can kill a great dramatic scene. People are like music. Some speak the truth, others are just noise. Listen to good music. Where words fail

Music speaks
