The Right Song at the Right Time
At every moment of our lives we are experiencing and expressing some sort of emotion that was brought on by some event or interaction during the day. For every mood, every emotion, every trial, every triumph, there is a song that we can all relate to. It is very common to ignore the importance of pop music in our lives, but consider: how would things be without ipods to produce the right notes for the moment? So many of us use music to compliment the way that we feel. We feel stronger to know that someone has felt the way we are feeling and has put it into song. This is the true power of music; it is there for us just like a reliable friend. For those who use music as more than basic, absent-minded entertainment, it seems only right to discuss the vitality of pop music. For those who live their lives to no melody, it would be in your benefit to see what can be added to your life by the right song at the right time.;
"According to biomusicologists (Biomusicology is a new field of science, according to Pennsylvania State University "What's in the News" website), music entered the world from the time only animals roamed the earth. It is theorized that animals used a form of music to communicate. Certainly the song of birds is musical and is a form of communication among their species. Humpback whales are said to sing sonatas as a form of communication."-The Importance of Music
As emphasized by the article "The Importance of Music", music has been used even before humans existed as a way to convey emotions and feelings. It is the most emotional mode of communication. Musical notes simply do something to communicate that the spoken word can hardly accomplish. Think how we use our words to tell someone that we are sad. We use a lower tone of voice, speak slower, and hit notes that are suppressed by our emotions. We speak dully. This is an effective way to convey our feelings. However, what is more effective than the same words put to a resounding melody of chords and beats. Nothing can compare to a good song. I encourage those that don't consider the importance of music to reevaluate this choice. Ever since I became aware of the power of the right song at the right time, my life has been elevated, absolutely. When I am sad, I may listen to Coldplay or Slightly Stoopid. These bands play songs with style that make me feel like I am not the only one who has felt the way I feel. When I am happy or excited, I blast hip hop in my car or headphones. This adds to my excitement. There is no reason to go through something without the help of one of the most interesting and powerful modes of expression ever to exist. Music is there for us- all we have to do is use it.
