When you’re happy you enjoy the music, but when you’re sad you understand the lyrics – Frank Ocean
This saying is so true. We have all lived this exact moment, yet I am sure that no one really noticed this nuance.
There are many times where I need music for the melody, for the rhythm and the beat, which totally puts me in a great mood. It brings me on a high of energy.
Other times, I need music for the words, the lyrics and the messages I can relate too. I guess that when you’re sad, a song can express your emotion in a way you can’t and your feelings simply align to that particular song. When I am sad, the lyrics become my escape and singing the lyrics makes these words powerful. It’s extremely liberating!
Music makes the possibilities seem endless. It allows us to feel every emotion we experience in a unique way. Keep listening… & singing!
