Music hasn’t always been my go to relaxation over the years but I have recently been listening to music more often and it’s brought back so many memories both sad and happy personal experiences.
I feel that music can give you the sense of escape from the real world which everyone one needs at some point which is so inspiring that it can be so powerful to do this.
There are so many songs what mean a lot to me and for very different reasons to:
There are a selection of songs from my past of dancing throughout secondary school which make me sad and happy at the same time which is a strange feeling to have. I miss dancing now I am 23 and real life kicks in I just don’t have the time. But It also reminds me how happy I was to be in the zone and to be a part of dance shows and stage productions to be able to forget the world and just to concentrate on the movements of my body. The song “I Did It My Way” always brings a tear to my eye as it was playing the last time I ever danced properly, my last dance lesson at school before leaving.
Another song that will always hold a special place for me is “I will wait for you” My boyfriend, who was my best friend at this time sent me the link to the song through youtube and I remember listening to the song and it broke my heart, this one the first realisation that I had that he liked me more than a friend and I was so overwhelmed I used to play it over and over again. Me being 14 years old I had never had anyone feel that way about me. That song amongst other little chats started a wonderful and memorable start for me and my boyfriend and we are still together 9 years later and engaged.
I can’t wait for our wedding day to dance to another song which means a lot to us both but thats Hush, Hush to next year I’m afraid.
What influence does music have on your life?
