Songs… the backdrop of my life

I can’t live without music. Music is necessary. It’s like air. It’s like food. It’s literally the backdrop of my life. It is what I go to when my reality needs comfort. (Meaning I’m ALWAYS in need of music). It’s not the music that I need, it’s the lyrics. The lyrics resonate inside my very being. The lyrics often allow me to say what I need to say or they express how I’m feeling. The lyrics are telling my story with music… it’s like a music video in my head.

Each of the below songs …have saved me! Each of them is my go-to when I just can’t anymore. I play them loud… I can pick one and just play it over and over and over and over and over again. Needing to get out whatever I need to through the lyrics and music. I can listen to one song on repeat for days.

Ever bored or tired of them? No. Some of these songs have been with me from my childhood… others came along later and some are very recent additions. All have one thing In common… they save me!

More to come about each song… but in the meantime… what songs have touched your life? Can you relate to music being such a necessary part of your life? Can you share with me a song choice that is the backdrop of your life?

    • Janis Joplin is an amazing singer. Writing is the important part of the music that I love. It’s the words. The story. The meaning behind the words. I have great respect for those that enjoy writing … it often in others words that I have found my ability to speak. Keep writing 😊💕 and thank you for commenting and reading this post. 💗
