The Sound of Music

Listening to songs and enjoying music are two very different things. A very big reason that music works for people on so many levels is because the beautiful blend of sounds with a strong meaning with words. But many enjoy listening to songs than enjoying the complete package that makes up the music.

Try listening to the lyrics alone with the rhythm without any instruments playing. Then move away from the words and listen to just the instruments playing, the soul of the song. Now combine these two and hear them in totality. You will realize that they touch very different emotional chords inside your mind. Like in chemistry you’ve learnt that two elements with individually distinct properties can create a compound with a characteristic of its own. Life is like that too.

Maybe that is why parents tell their kids to mind their words and think before they speak. When you think of the word you wish to use to convey a message, it’s like listening to the rhythm of a song without the music. Your perception of how people would react to what you say is like the music without the words, the melody. When you speak your mind to people, you speak not just in words but also with your gestures. That constitutes the entire song.

Life is very musical, your reactions and decisions set the mood and genre of the song.

With A Little Help from My Friends (The Beatles)
What would you think if sang out of tune,
Would you stand up and walk out on me?
Lend me your ears and I’ll sing you a song
And I’ll try not to sing out of key.

Oh, I get by with a little help from my friends
Mm, I get high with a little help from my friends
Mm, gonna try with a little help from my friends

What do I do when my love is away?
(Does it worry you to be alone?)
How do I feel by the end of the day?
(Are you sad because you’re on your own?)

No, I get by with a little help from my friends
Mm, I get high with a little help from my friends
Mm, gonna try with a little help from my friends
Do you need anybody?

I need somebody to love
Could it be anybody?
I want somebody to love.

Would you believe in a love at first sight?
Yes I’m certain that it happen all the time
What do you see when you turn out the light?
I can’t tell you but I know it’s mine,

Oh, I get by with a little help from my friends
Mm, I get high with a little help from my friends
Mm, gonna try with a little help from my friends

Do you need anybody; I just need someone to love
Could it be anybody, I want somebody to love.

Oh, I get by with a little help from my friends
With a little help from my friends.
