Years ago, I was having an argument with a young, Neo-Nazi gasbag. He was talking about music. I advised the dumbass that ‘music is the soul’ (of a person). The idiot got all pissed off and blocked me after saying I was talking ‘nigga talk’.
No, its not ‘nigga’ talk.
Songs have the power to take a person back to a point in time in their lives… it can bring tears to the eye faster than anything on this planet without being negative. Songs can literally transport a person from being, say 65 years old to being a 22 year old in a millisecond. I’ve seen it time and time again when I sing at assisted living homes.
I will show you how far we have fallen as a nation in these 2 songs:
1st SONG is Jo Stafford’s “Suddenly, Theres a valley”
Beautiful tune filled with longing, unfulfilled belonging. A piece of heaven.
Below, we have this pure trash as a ‘song’. When these kids are 65 years old, will they remember this ‘song’ (noise pollution on a CD) as a fond memory? A time when they were in love or had their first child? I hope the music industry is proud. They’ve managed to turn the youth into a jungle habitat of violent children. Sickening.
Cardi B’s “Bodack Yellow” (It should be called: “Gag, Puke, Vomit”.)
Does this make you proud to be an American?
Glad to see you back. I’ve missed you.
It is true that love and hope has slowly been disappearing from songs. But it has been replaced by sexual and social anger. Protests about a pimp that is being abusive has made number one on the music charts.
Ty, hope you are well 🙂
Music therapy is even being used to treat Alzheimer’s patients because it is so powerful. 🙂 Definitely a time travel machine, as is the sense of smell.
Many Autistic children who can only bang their heads against the wall have benefited by being plugged into a music playing Walkman. The child is happier and often dances to the music. Certain types of music can provide entertainment to those severely impacted with brain damage. Some even in a coma will tap their finger to the beat of music.
