My friend Louminator often posts a song "Ponder" or "theme song video box" that sums up his blog, of course this is my definition of his posts that include blog musical selections! With that in mind he adds songs to 99.9% of his blogs! I mention this after having spent a glorious weekend with friends and family...I now I sit in a Quiet House...with my thoughts and looking at videos from YouTube creating a distraction to keep me awake! At least long enough to not go to sleep right now, its way to early...even though I really want to!!! So You all will have to deal with my randomness and quirkiness! Remember when MTV actually had Videos?Ive got a lot swirling in my brains (I have more then one brain) and the sweet sixteen blog that needs to be written and posted (With Pics Angie!!) will go un-posted until another day....So for now I sit here wondering how many people actually do still in fact use music as a way to articulate emotion. I read a blog suggestion once, suggesting you write a letter to anonymous, and it helps you cleanse your issues with that person. I did that once before, and in fact it included several people...I felt better. I should have been able to include a fuck you video as background music for that letter! Remember when Lloyd Dobler used a song to incite a response? I should've posted a blog that lists my family and what songs make me think of them... and may still compile a list of people (Family mostly) and offer a song to sum up my relationship with them...or at least how I interpret them. ...Ramble Ramble! I have had a Lloyd Dobler moment or two in my day....Not blaring the Boom Box moment...however, three times in my life I have been given a song to ponder! I have often chuckled at the thoughts and emotions that people place on/with a song. I remember making mixed tapes as a kid! I remember thinking that the boy (or two) who also made me a mixed tape must have really put some thought into compiling the music for me!I wonder now why I didn't read further into the song Another One Bites the Dust? There is one song in particular that has me in somewhat of a ponder mode...*God Damn I love to Hate the movie The Notebook!...Can anyone get through this God damn movie without hyperventilating through tears!....Oh sorry....what was the point here? Oh yeah: Music strikes an emotion! Certain songs even have a smell to me....simply because its tied to an emotional memory...having someone say, as an example...."Have you ever heard this song (insert song title here X) ?" then they reply "this is how I feel right now".....well it strikes a cord with me. PUN INTENDED! Music makes a connection with all people of all races! Infants are soothed by music! People are given subliminal messages and kill from interpreting music...There was a time that we went into Battle by beating a drum. Music is a pretty heavy subject to take on when you are using it to communicate! I'm dizzy just thinking about it! For someone who can not articulate their emotions....to be able or ask of someone to allow a song to speak for them is deep in and of its self. Considering that a song is suppose to sum up in 3:43 seconds their
So the song ponder suggestion was: Press Play
I have Pondered....and Im not sure if I was suppose to just contemplate it or reply in song...Press Play and Happy Pondering!
And to further sum it up:
