“That’s one of the great things about music. You can sing a song to 85,000 people and they’ll sing it back for 85,000 different reasons.”- Dave Grohl
What comes to your mind when you hear the word “Music”?
You’re bombarded with thoughts at the speed of light; isn’t it?
Music can be summed up as a spectrum of emotions in one single word.
7 notes and infinite compositions! The world of music is a mystery in itself.
Every single person interacts with music in a unique way. That’s the only similarity that music offers.
There is a plethora of ways in which music works in our lives.
As an ESCAPE!
…when all is wrong in the world, the people you love are against you; your work is not going well; your health is deteriorating. Music always has your back.
As an INSPIRATION!
…when you’re at an all time low in your career or facing a writer’s block; struggling to find a muse for an art piece, or maybe just looking for a job change, some random song playing in the background gives you a powerful insight by way of lyrics.
As a Hobby or a Profession!
..even though musicians are behind the faces of actors, they have a special place in the hearts of the listeners.
As a mode of COMMUNICATION!
…every generation has communicated through music, these days it’s more evident in the form of song dedications and song recommendations.
As a mode of EXPRESSION!
…when you’re angry and when you’re sad; when you’re happy; when you’re skeptical, or maybe when you’re indifferent, there are always a few lines of that song which fit your mood.
“The world’s most famous and popular language is music.” – PSY
From Country style to Easy Listening,
From Electronic to Folk,
From Hip hop to Jazz,
From Pop to Rhythm and Blues,
From Gazals to Dance numbers,
From classic Indian Bollywood to Yo Yo Honey Singh Rap.
Every genre has takers.
A Football lover can be a Jagjit Singh fan, and a Sitar player can be a Metallica fan.
There is no type cast, neither stereotype nor prediction of tastes for music.
Have you ever thought about music beyond just a way to get through a journey from home to office? What makes music unique for you? How do you connect with music?
Aren’t these questions, Music for Thought?
