Music and Me

Wherever you want to go, have you noticed how music can take you there? Everywhere you need to be, everything you feel, everything you want to express can be conveyed through the universal language of music. I was fortunate enough to be raised appreciating all types of music. I love meaningful lyrics. I love music with no lyrics at all. Even without a single lyric, music can stir your soul. I am charmed by the sounds of many types of world music. I believe music is one of the gifts that can enhance and persuade your emotions.

People identify music with different phases of their life. I never grew up in the hey day era of Elvis or The Beatles, but listening to their music now, I can appreciate it. I did grow up listening to Michael Jackson and even at a very young age, I knew I was a lifelong fan. I do believe it is that powerful and I'm thankful for it.

One good thing about music, when it hits you
Feel no pain.
So hit me with music, hit me with music.
Hit me with music, hit me with music now.

-Bob Marley

We've been together for such a long time now,
Music and me.
Don't care whether all our songs rhyme now,
Music and me.

I know where ever I go,
We're as close as two friends can be.
There have been others,
But never two lovers like music,
Music and me.

Grab a song and come along,
You can sing your melody.
In your mind you will find,
A world of sweet harmony.

Birds of a feather,
Will fly together.
Now with music, music and me,
Music and me

-Michael Jackson
