Tons of work on my plate tonight. I wanted to relax a little so I started playing some videos on YouTube. Â One video led to another and suddenly, I felt like a DJ and simply had to post the links to my FB page! Music has always had this ability to open up my heart, relax me and remind me of a time when...no matter how stressed I get, I can always play a few jams and get a smile on my face.
Whether it's Maxwell, Robin Thicke, Melissa Etheridge, The Goo Goo Dolls, Paul Abdul, Michael Jackson, Jennifer Lopez, Marc Anthony, or Carlos Vives. Â It doesn't matter because each rhythm has a special chord that reaches deep down in your soul. Â That's the beauty of music, isn't it? That it can touch you somewhere in the muddy waters of your soul and pull out a fresh cup of water, clear as air. I mean, I don't care what kind of day you are having, if you hear Prince's P**** Control or Sexy MF, how does it make you feel?
Well, maybe it's just me but songs can make me feel like I got all of my mami swagger back. Â They can remind me of a certain outfit I wore long ago, or a group of friends that I used to hang out with. Â Music can transcend time and space along with emotion.
What song brings you to a happy place? Â What song do you like to listen to when you're feeling down? Now if you'll excuse me, Robin Thicke is calling my name with one of his songs. Â I'll let you guess which one...
