Happy Monday to you....

Music is what feelings sound like- (Author Unknown)

Happy Monday to you....Today I wanted to share this notion I have with you. I absolutely love music. It's an absolute part of my everyday life. Hence the reason why I went to University for a music degree but let's leave that adventure for another day. I strongly believe that if you look back at defining moments in your life so far. It can be something happy or something sad. A divorce, a journey, a marriage, meeting a girlfriend/boyfriend or whatever else you can think of. My theory is that with every turning point or event in your life you should probably remember a certain song that played over an over again during that time. And if played now (present time) you could remember certain events from your past. Music is a powerful tool in which we can express virtually everything and anything. Music can be found practically in every corner of the world. It is not only heard at rock concerts, but in elevators, on the telephone(when your on hold) kids as early as five have ipod's...Music is also used for political agenda.

Music is truly universal

Just to name a few, when I hear Eric Clapton's song 'Tears in Heaven' I think of an old boyfriend I dated for a few short weeks. Another is 'Survivor' by Destiny's Child which I listened to after my divorce. Celine Dion's 'Une Colombe' when my grandmother passed away. I can't seem to bring myself to sing it all the way through without crying. My mother absolutely loves the song 'Wind beneath my wind' by Bette Midler. It was the first song I learnt how to sing well. I remember practicing in my room for hours singing. Every time I hear it I think of the love she has for me. When the 'Hockey night in Canada' song comes on I think of being a young girl sitting on the couch with my older brother and father watching the Montreal Canadiens play hockey.
When I was pregnant for my daughter Bon Jovi's song 'It's my life' and the PussyCat Dolls
'Don't Cha' song played over and over again. I remember singing and dancing in my living room rubbing my belly. LOL
After a few short weeks of dating my fiance, I brought him back to my hometown for a family gathering, we danced to Rod Stewart's 'Have I told you lately that I love you'. That night he made me feel like I was the only lady in the room and his eyes were solely on mine. I believe that was the night I truly feel in love with him.
So as you can see many of my memorable moments include a certain song.

Pls, don't be shy...let me know a few songs which has special memories for you...

Have a great week.
