Music is to the ears what color is to the eyes and what smells are to the nose. It tickles those little ear hairs (I have alot) like aromas tickle the little nose hairs.
But music tends to go deeper than that.
God I hope so!
A person can embrace a melody and lyrics and make their own personal anthem. They can sing it repeatedly, taking the message to heart.
So what? I’m not reading this to get an expose` on music.
Oh. I suppose that is why I love music so much. I listen to all types. I even listen to lowly country music...sometimes if I’m in the right mood, if it has uplifting lyrics, a good bass line, upbeat rhythm, not too sappy steel guitar and a catchy melody. That’s not too much to ask for is it?
A connoisseur of music is what I consider myself. Always searching for another song to hum or whistle.
Some of my favorites:
Inkslinger’s Melody (I’ve hummed this tune for years; ask me sometime and I’ll hum it for you)
Rhapsody in Blue, by Gershwin
Harmony, by Elton John
Those are some of my favorites. That’s the whole idea behind starting KNUT radio.
