There are days, you wake up in the morning, start with a smile and little dance and you look forward to a new day and then boom…Suddenly, you feel miserable. What triggered this feeling could be due to various reasons, but you just can find your mojo again.
One of the ways I Boost my Soul: Music !
If I feel like crying, but the tears just won’t come and I know I need a good cry to work through my emotions and get that uncomfortable feeling out of my system, this is one of the songs that does the trick for me:
In need of a song just to sing out loud, dance like crazy and lift my spirit…I have a lot of favorites, Nirvana’s Smells Like Teen Spirit, Bon Jovi’s Sleep when I’m dead, but always on my playlist for those moments ( I hope I can still do this at the age, she still did 😉 ):
On those days I think our big Dreampack won’t survive much longer, despair is getting the best of me, my all-time favorite is and will always be:
And if that doesn’t help, I have my own rock to keep me grounded and to crawl into his arms, my Mimi a text-message away, my Dad from which I got my love for music, dear family & friends and of course you…dear Beautiful Souls who keep on supporting and connecting with me 🙂
Now tell me, what kind of music helps to Boost Your Soul?
Ah… I’ve adopted Adele’s ‘Make you feel my love’ when my tears need a push from the heart. But the Misa Criolla by Mercedes Sosa does a good job there too. I can’t sit still and stay sad however whenever I hear A Brand New Day, from The Wizard of Oz! 🙂 Love your ‘playlist’ too, though… <3
Oh yes, those do the trick too. And yes, a Brand New Day won’t keep me sitting still either 🙂
Enjoy your weekend, dear Anushka. XxX
I will, you have a good weekend too dear Patty! X
Glad to see i’m not the only one 🙂
And yes, your songs work, definitely. Sarah McLachlan – In the arms of an angel, wasted time – eagles, the rose – Beth Midler, work for me aswell, and for the Dutch, Maarten van Roosendaal ‘Mooi’; can make me laugh and cry at the same time.
Dikke knuffel voor jou, mooi mens xx
Oooh, good choices too! 🙂 Yes, there are indeed songs who can do both. En voor jou ook, lief mens. Fijn weekend! XxX
music brings my soul to life. music is my relugion 😀 LOVE THE Al Green song xxxx
Yes, my first and last love too 😉
Music can offer such magic can’t it?! I love your choices Patty. Right now I’ve got Amy Steinberg’s Exactly on pretty constant spin – it makes my heart quite happy.
Ooh, that is indeed a wonderful song too 🙂
Thank you for visiting and connecting, dear Deborah. Much appreciated. XxX
Meghan Trainor’s Me, Too is a great pick me up. I loved it as soon as I heard it a year or so ago.
Ah yes, that is a fun song 🙂
Absolute genius! Lovely post Patty, I’ve always been a big fan of Denzel Washington but I never really heard this song from Book of Eli. Its really good and refreshing. Music is really a great energy booster! Especially music like you recommended.
Stay happy stay blessed 🙂
Thank you Harvard. Music is also a fantastic ‘connector’ 😉 Big hug, XxX
