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!!!!!

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.

I don't remember seeing the movie, King Ralph, so I'll have to try and rent a DVD.

Teresa you will like the movie, lots of old fashioned humor and slapstick type comedy.

yes, john and the world: As I have said before many times, music is healing, it is a food for the soul, it is vibrant, like a generous portion of your best tasting food, it is magic, a fantasy world to float you on a trip to anywhere. To washing your dishes with a sway of the body. While reading a book. While teaching my child to read with background music to match the story. It is never ending. It is love. Peach

Music is def healing and mood-lifting. You could, for example, got to Spotify.com and make a playlist of upbeat songs by, say, James Taylor, Fleetwood Mac – "You make loving fun" and stay away from angry rap lyrics and sad songs.

Classical – Rachmaninoff (emotional), Ravel, Prokofiev (Romeo and Juliet) are some more suggestions. Happy music!

@This old fashioned lady still uses tapes mostly and then some cd's so i get exactly what I like. Everything is changing so fast in the electronic world . It is difficult and sometimes impossible to keep up with the world. So, please be patient and kind to us old people as we are also in great pain. And because of the age we have a number of different pains. We are all in the same boat so watch out for the leaks. Peach

@peach414144 You are not alone. I listen to tapes too!!! Who knows? They may be worth something some day. They are priceless to me for now.

When my wife was ill, music, TV, etc. was all too stimulating for her so we lived a silent existence for years and years. I missed my music a TON (my favorite is the Moody Blues), but I was hindered by the fact I am deaf in one ear and ear buds, headphones, etc. were frustrating since I lost any stereo effect, hearing only a weird portion of the music, etc.

So for what it's worth and just in case anyone in this tread has the same issue, after much trial and error and searching I finally found DJ, single-ear, stereo headphones! They are made by a company named Beyerdynamic and they brought back my ability to enjoyably listen to music when I needed the house to be quiet and now in places like airplanes and the train. (I have no relationship with and nothing to gain from mentioning this company.)

A just in case PSA.

Strength, Courage, and Peace

Just had to share this Youtube video with you all to lift your spirits. This comes from Great Ormond Street Hospital in the UK where many children are awaiting a transplants. This is a song dedicated to those children. This is a good sing-along song for all of us! https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=4&v=lQ_TdIqNsqI
