The Power Of Music

Can you recall a time when music has had a profound or magical effect on you?

Did it change you, comfort you, inspire you, arouse you?
Did it make you fall in love or enhance an existing love?
Did it bring back good, bad or forgotten memories?
Did it connect you to someone or something?
Did you hear something in a song that spoke to you on a surreal level?
Did music ever give you a psychedelic high?

Exactly how powerful can music be? DO TELL!!!

I remember this like it was yesterday. So I was in high school. My favorite artists were Elton John and McCartney and Chicago. This was during the short time i was driving this big Oldsmobile with this outrageous stereo radio in it that sounded like it was 3D or something, a really big sound. Anyway I had on the radio and the DJ announced the new song by Elton and it was his version of Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds and I couldn't believe how great it was.

When I saw the TV debut of the videos "Free As A Bird" and "Real Love" by the Beatles it was both heart breaking and exhilarating at the same time. It went beyond my wildest expectations. It was alike a glimpse into an alternate universe where John Lennon had lived to make music with his mates again. The video of Free As A Bird
was especially haunting and so profound on every level. It was pure genius, just like the music. Both songs and videos were amazing. I have to admit I shed some tears of mourning but also tears of joy that we got one last chance to see what could have been and it was wonderful.

I was 4 or 5 years old. My Mom had his Harmony arch top guitar. I would sneak in my parents bedroom closet to gently strum he strings. I fell in love with he sound, the vibration. I eventually learned my first chords on it. And, I have to this day. It proudly hangs in my studio. A love not forgotten. Sounds like a song title?

For every Bob Dylan release since 1974, I could write a short story pertaining to events from my life at that time. And that would be a lot of stories.

I was about 9 years old and there awas a jazz saxophonist named Cannonball Adderly that my grandmother use to play all the time. He had an album called Nippon Soul and it featured Flutist Yusef Lateef who was then and still is my favorite flute player. Anyway, everytime she played that album I felt safe and happy for some strange reason. No sure why because safe and happy was not my life growing up. I was seldom safe and never happy. But listening to that album always gave me a feeling of security and tranquility. Cannonbal made me fall in love with the Sax. So much so that I took one from one of the kids in the school band and taught myself how to play it. To this very day, when ai hear any song from that album a feeling of peace and security comes over me. So, I have learned to play it whenever my PTSD starts to act up on me. Music has always been a source of therapy for me.

I have some powerful memories that return every time I hear:

Sarah Smile by Hall & Oates transports me to a time where I was kissing my then girlfriend in the back seat of a 70 Chevy.....

I Can't Tell You Why by the Eagles conjures up a memory of sitting beneath a palm tree on a Florida beach, watching the gently swaying palm leaves in the soft breeze the first time I heard that song on the portable radio I'd brought with me,

yeah, something magical.....

I'm loving reading your stories here, thank you.
Oddly, the music that stirs the warmest feelings in me is when I hear and see a live marching band in a street parade - it doesn't matter how amateurish the musicians or how out of time they are, these simple instruments and the look of pride on performers and spectators faces just adds to the thrill and the world feels wholesome.
