I was thinking and jamming the other day, well maybe a bit more of the later but never the less. I was rocking to some old heavy metal jams from my wide collection of the best of yesterday and today. Although it is hard to find some of the same kick butt jams today that helped shaped yesterday into today.
Anyways I was rocking and contemplating again the power of music and rock n roll in specific. Nothing really in all creation has the power to influence society, human nature or its condition than that of music. When your sad it can lift you, when your angry it can make you more angry, take you down memory lane where you may not want to revisit.
How many of you have listened to a song and remembered things that you may have once forgotten, or felt things that you have not felt in a long time? Now laying aside all of your ideas and thoughts about the power of the jam, think with me and ask yourself a very simple but deep question…why is it that it does that? Now pushing aside from the obvious look deeper. Why does music do this to you and me? What power is manipulating your heart and mind?
Now me myself I love music and I love that it has this force to change our hearts and motivate you. I would just hope that some of you my fellow rockers, musicians, and mystics would kindly share your thoughts with me on this topic. I am not saying anything bad or good just curious as to what you all think about it. I think it would make for good conversation. Share your thoughts,memories and what not.
