Music Helps Me

Posted by Parus @parus, Oct 13, 2017

At times music can be helpful. I like the group Anthem Lights…A new discovery for me when I was perusing youtube. A Capella has always been my thing. I love to sing!!!!!

@johnbishop Yup that's a great video of some of my favorite songs woven together. I've been a John Denver fan forever, and love Dolly's song, "I will always love you". They also showed some Country Music history with the Ryman Auditorium in the visuals. When they created the show "Almost Heaven", about the life and music of John Denver, they did similar things with weaving 2 songs together so they were being sung at the same time which made some unique and beautiful music with groups of people singing in harmony.

Music and memories – great combination to take your mind off of what ever is bothering you. Just found a great 60s movie that is free on YouTube. If you grew up in the early days of rock and roll you will enjoy seeing this movie, listening to the the songs that brought up memories for me and hopefully for you too.

Update – looks like they changed the movie from free to fee 🙁 It is a great movie. I updated the link. It's also available free on Amazon Prime Video – https://www.amazon.com/That-Thing-You-Everett-Scott/dp/B000I9W0O2

That Think You Do!

Hi @parus — thank you for starting this discussion! While I have zero musical talent, I love to listen to most all kinds of music. Since I'm such a computer nerd, a lot of times when I'm working at the computer and feel the need to be inspired for any reason. A song from my past usually pops into my head and I like to hear the original artist sing it. Through the wonders of Google search I've learned to search with the title of the song and youtube which brings me up a list of choices and sometimes it makes me hop with joy. For example, a few days ago a title popped into my head "Good Golly Miss Molly" and I did my search and came up with a 2 minute version by the artist – Little Richard doing the song in a skit with John Goodman from a movie he had starred in about being a king. Here's what I came up with that made me get out of my chair and since no one could see me – sing along and dance.

EVERYONE has musical talent! Your heart beats a steady rhythm. If you can tell who's calling one the phone by the sound of their voice you have tonal memory. Same when you recognize a song after hearing only the first few notes.

I updated the link in my post. For some reason YouTube changed it from free to you have to pay to see it. Amazon Prime Video has it for free.
