I Love Music

I think this quote sums up my thoughts about music.

" I love music.  For me, music is  morning coffee.  It's mood
medicine.  It 's pure magic.  A good song is like a good meal-
I just want to inhale it and then share a bite with someone else."

- Hoda Kotb


  1. Soothes the savage beast! (that would be me!)

  2. For me music can set a mood. I like different music for different moods. What a gift music is but sometime, I'm in the mood for silence.

  3. As William Congreve wrote in his play The Mourning Bride:
    Music has Charms to sooth a savage Breast,
    To soften Rocks, or bend a knotted Oak.
    I've read, that things inanimate have mov'd,
    And, as with living Souls, have been inform'd,
    By Magic Numbers and persuasive Sound.
    What then am I? Am I more senseless grown
    Than Trees, or Flint? O force of constant Woe!
    'Tis not in Harmony to calm my Griefs.
    Anselmo sleeps, and is at Peace; last Night
    The silent Tomb receiv'd the good Old King;
    He and his Sorrows now are safely lodg'd
    Within its cold, but hospitable Bosom.
    Why am not I at Peace?

  4. Totally with you. Music and lyrics in any language are like magic if they are good. If they are mediocre, still better than silence, just lower the volume.
