Reflections on my #SongOfTheDay

Have you ever taken the time to think about how songs from the past effect you now, compared to their affect on you back then? Let me explain what I mean.

Last night, as I lay in bed, listening to some relaxing instrumental music on my Echo Dot, a song popped into my head from way back when I was a kid. The song was Sail On by the Commodores. I remember liking the song when I was about four or five years old. The song starts off soft and in a lower octave. However, once it reached the chorus, the song moves into a higher octave. To me, the chorus sounded louder than the verse or verses, depending on how you look at it. Now, when I listen to the song again, I realize that I still like the song, but the affect is different. Taking into consideration what I’ve learned about music theory and my sensitivity to the vibrations of music,, I find that the pitch change is soothing, though the lyrics tell another story.

I have a musical challenge for you. Take some time to listen to the songs you heard on the radio from your childhood. Reflect on how the music makes you feel today, versus the way you felt when you first heard them. What songs from your earliest memories have taken on new meaning for you later in life? Have the songs you thought you didn’t like when you first heard them, become your favorites today? Feel free to share your answers in the comments below.
Blessings,
Ann
