Day 5: A song to match your mood

Turn this on first. Then hit play on the track list here.

Sometimes, you don’t need lyrics to identify with a song. A lot of times, I think, it’s actually a lot harder. Why? The lyrics belong to someone else. They are the words to a melody of someone else’s heart. And people being just how people are, two hearts rarely share exactly the same feelings.

There is just something about the ambiance of the two melodies that have a powerful effect. Rain, as nature’s serenade to the earth, has this soothing wave as it goes from slight droplets and climaxes to the passionate thundering. I don’t know, maybe it’s a Pacific Northwestern thing, but I really enjoy listening to the rain. And it just makes the songs even more epic.

To me, this synergy shows a bit of a lot of emotions and feelings: nostalgia, longing, passion, sorrow, hope, etc. I guess right now, I identify with those the most. The awesome thing about music is that you can interpret it any way you want. Of course there may be a general overarching view, but you can always personalize the details, even more so with instrumentals.

I don’t really have much more to say; just let the music speak for itself.
