A Day of Music, Tears, and Thoughts.
I have been listing to a lot of music today.
Music always helps me wade through my emotions… It pushes me get out the feelings that I have buried, so I can think, feel and figure out what it is that I need to do, or follow, to be happy.
I normally follow each album with reflection in quiet stillness where I dry the tears that pushed from my eyes as I listened to the sad or heart felt words.
When in this mood I seem to listen to the same bands/albums over and over. The repetition anchors me in the storm of my emotions as I drift thrashing on the sobs pushing from my soul.
The albums I listen to today are:
Sarah McLachlan… Fumbling towards Ecstasy
REO Speed Wagon… Greatest Hits
Chris Isaak… Forever Blue
Norah Jones… Come Away With Me.
Diana Krall… When I Look In Your Eyes
Metallica… Black Album.
Quite diverse I guess for reflection music… and Metallica Black simply puts me into an emotional state where all I do is feel. Don’t know why that is.
I listen to all forms of music normally, even country. Yeah I did just say that. Though classic Rock is a favorite of mine, you know all those songs you heard and danced to while growing up. (a topic for an entirely different post.)
Do you listen to music when you are in a sad, reflective mood? If so what do you listen too?
