Music for the Tortured Soul 3.5.13

Be careful what you listen to when your heart is breaking!! Music…it will make you or break you! You heard the saying tears in your beers. Cowboy sits in the bar listening to his song about an old long lost cowgirl whose boots were made for walking and she done walked away from him and he done sits is not a typo..he sits thar guzzling his beer full of tears.

You know what you can’t listen to, me. Could not hear Adele. Oh hell no, what she say something about just coming to check up on him, hoping he is ok, hoping the best for him, hoping the best for him and his new love??? You dumped me but I hope you are and your new love are ok???? HELL NO!!

Know why? Because like Adele said, for me it wasn’t over. It hurt, it cut through me to hear any of her music. I couldn’t hear anything that he listened to, I couldn’t listen to anything that he had dedicated to me. It seemed like it had been a lie to me. So was it that I could not listen to anything? Seems like it!

A good friend of mine refered me to spiritual music. That truly was uplifting. Oldies were out because good ol’ Diana Ross, man she was always singing about how she knew he was cheating on her but she didn’t care she loved him anyways. Why does all music have to do with LOVE!!! Country music is about broken hearts, blues…well doesn’t take a rocket scientist…about feeling blue. We can listen to bang your head music. I think everyone is just really pissed off! Not really pretty to listen to but not too sad.

Just be careful what you listen to, DON’T TORTURE YOURSELF SITTING THERE HAND ON CHEEK TEARS ROLLING DOWN FACE REMINISICNG ON OLD SONGS! CHANGE THE DAMN STATION IF A SONG THAT HITS A CORD COMES ON!!! Uh yeah I have been in a car with a friend and reached over and changed a song and said, sorry do you mind, this really brings back bad memories, thank you for understanding. They did.

Listen to bee bop music, sock hop type music. You know bubble gum popping music. Madonna, 80’s music wasn’t much about love but more about dancing and disco. My two most inspiring songs that I swear my Angels put in my life to make me stronger were Stronger by Kelly Clarkson and Wide Awake by Katy Perry. Youtube them and watch the music video especially to Wide Awake….I always liken myself to the Butterfly… transforming into a stronger woman. As Kelly Clarkson says…What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, stand a little taller…Oh Yeah!

Happy Tunes ladies!!!

    You are right about music striking a chord. But I love one of Adele’s song videos where she breaks glasses and plates, forget which one, though. I also think finding crazy hard rock n roll usually is not all about love, per se, more about sex, drugs and having fun!
