Through out life we experience so much emotion from happiness, to pain to passion and frustration. For me personally, music makes the perfect diary for emotion overload. My music tells a story of truth, everything that I sing about and that I write about comes from experience. I would never lie to myself about my feelings and I will never lie to the world about how i really feel at any moment in my life.
Honestly, I have just arrived at this point in my life where I can appreciate every emotion that i have experienced. I used to really ask myself ” Okay, Really Shelly?” at least 7 times a day because i would regret allowing myself to be emotionally vunerable to certain things. I havent always had the best of relationships so with that experience behind me i can write so many F you songs and you broke my heart go to hell music lol. I may be getting a little carried away with my choice of words, sorry i was starting to have flashbacks of my boyfriend nightmares…back to the future….
Where was I…o yes music is just basically the story of my life put into notes and rhymed with a tempo. Just as my emotions are all over the place when I am in love, so is my ipod. My ipod channels me its the craziest thing. When i press shuffle it always plays a song that matches my mood and I have everything on there from R&B Soul to House Music. When I cant seem to get the words out on paper or sing a word out i just press play on my Ipod which is the oldest of the Ipods, (yes the big clunker that freezes and dies ever 15 minutes #dontjudgeme) and it tells my entire story instantly.
Music can also shift my energy to different places. I will let you in on a little late night candle light secret of mine, Kings of Leon actually does something to me. This bands music makes me feel like so sensual it turners me into a sensual kitten and I can’t help but to love it. I probably feel like the sexiest babe behind closed doors on a Friday night when i hear “Sex on Fire” And let’s not get into what Prince’s “The Most Beautiful Girl In The World” does to me (FAINTS)….PAUSE… I just went from wanting to curse my ex boyfriends to feeling like a sensual kitten to wanting to go on a date with Prince…see what music can do smh.
Well basically what I am trying to say to you is that music is power in my eyes, an energy caught in time that can never be destroyed…unless your little sister connects your ipod to another computer and destroys your entire music collection that your ancient ipod can barley hold…(True Story)….well not even that can forever destroy music forever it can just make you scream really loud…(we will talk more about things that make me scream in another blog) but in conclusion music is forever and like the blood running through my veins music sustains life.
